    Question 7 cell dual charging?

    So I have the traxxas easy peak 6 amp charger, and I was wondering if it is capable of dual-charging NiMH batteries. I use the charger to dual charge 2s and 3s LiPo packs as advertised, however; if I were to buy a parallel connector, would it also be able to dual charge NiMH packs? This would sure give me a lot more run time and a lot less down time! Any advice is helpful, Thanks!

    That is not suggested. With LiPos the charger can 'see' each individual cell through the balance lead and make sure they're all charged properly. NiMh batteries do not have that option, which could lead to over or under charging packs.
