    Dual charging NiMH with the EZ Peak?

    Just bought a new Revo brushless along with a EZ Plus charger. Since I just dropped almost 800 on this I'm not yet going to be running Lipo's. Right now it's going to be the included batteries for a little bit. I know when I run Lipo's I can get an optional dual setup but is there an option to charge the included batteries together?

    There is no such option for NiMH packs. They should not be charged together.

    from what i know no charger on the market or traxxas charger is able to charge nimh cells together unless the charger has a second port to charge it which it doesnt and its not recommended to use the series or parallel connectors traxxas sells to charge nimh as they can over charge and cause fire, harm to yourself or someone else or burn your house down. Highly recommend not to charge 2 nimh's.

    Easy question: how do you know?
