    MaxAmps 5000 Nimh

    Bought a bunch of these for my villian and other electric things and they seem to charge hot.
    Anybody else running them?

    How many amps are you charging them at and what charger are you using? Also what do you consider Hot? What temp are you seeing?

    Trying figure this out. Do you have an exact temp from say An IR gun or are you guessing the temp by the feel?

    RE: MaxAmps 5000 Nimh

    Ok is this the average temp of the whole pack or one cell in the pack. And all the packs are at this temp?

    they were all right around there
    I have 2 intellect twin peaks that are charging them at 3.5 amps also and they were all pretty hot.
    Around the 100 range.

    RE: MaxAmps 5000 Nimh

    Yeah what your seeing is normal if the whole pack is at an equal temp. If you have say just one cell a lot hotter than the rest then I would say you have a cell going bad or already bad. You can reduce your charge rate if you'd like but your charge time will go up. But your pack temp will go down.

    RE: MaxAmps 5000 Nimh

    I am just going to keep running them .
    If I have any over heating issues Max Amps told me that they will raplace the pack if I have a melt down.
    thanks you guys for the help
    had them out again yesterday these are great batteries.
