NiMh cells are not 'the safe option' - you need to take just as much care.

aggdaddy - if you are using a LiPo charger - then no. Because the lipo is full, so it wont charge. The lipo charger stops when the pack reaches the correct voltage. The cells are rated at these charge rates by the manufacturers (not the pack builders)
