    Parallel Charging

    Can I charge two of the series 1 1/16 NiMHs at the same time with a parallel or series connector or is it unsafe? They'd be hooked up to a one port charger like an EZ Peak Plus. Also how many amps would I have to charge at to be safe?

    You can't parallel charge Nimhs.
    Series charge, I'm unsure how many cells you have or what the cell count is on the charger. So I'd say no, to be safe for either ways.
    But parallel is a no-go.

    In both cases it is unsafe... it is really easy for the charger to severely overcharge 1 of the batteries that is hooked up.

    In short, charge your NiMh 1 at a time.
    Whatever it is I just typed... could be wrong.
