    Question Hot Battery

    I have an old NiMH for my slash that I found and put on the charger. It was still charging when I measured the temperature, and it was a whopping 125 degrees ... is that normal ?

    It's a 4200 so I was charging at 4amps. That too much ?

    No. The battery might be the problem there.

    Battery might be past it's prime.
    What is the voltage off the charger?
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.
