ive heard all this talk about how you have to watch nimh's real carefully when charging. is this only when you use a timed charger? would you not have to worry about it at all with a peak charger that nimh's can be used on? thanks

A peak detector should stop when it is done charging, however NIMHs can still get hot enough to do a false trip sometimes.
Ever since getting nimhs, I use a fan when charging. I got a larger 9' circular fan that can point straight up. I just lay the batts right on the fan. That prevented me from ever getting another false peak.
If you have a temp gun, you want the batts to be under 170 at all times.
