my 9.6v 1400mah use to get awfully hot when charged at 2-3 amps. it doesn't even get warm anymore.
**please don't tell me not to charge at high current. been doing this for ages on many types of batteries and have no issues with them.
Yeah, but if you over current Lithium Ion or LiPo batteries without a PCM, you'll blow it lol. Over current protection usually kicks in from 2A-6A with a PCM.
