kinda my issue. I do have a old school quick charger for 7.2 packs. Wonder if that would trickle charge my 6v pack or at least charge it with low enough current to revive it. I might try it. I really dont care about blowing them up or ruining them as im really just trying to learn a little about batteries. I dont expect them to last. Could you guys recommend an inexpensive decent peak charger for nimhs? This is the one i have. http://ehsia.com/dynamite-mega-1-quick-charger
its said the trickle charge is 100mah so would this work for my 6v?
trickle charge hooked to the volt meter is reading 1.48v. So considering nimhs are 1.4-1.45 hot off the charger i should be fine to let this trickle charge my 5 cell packs. I wont use the timer as the voltage doubles and i read its 4amps which cant be good. But 100mah should be around 19.6 hours and technically my pack should be full from the trickle.
1400mah/100ma x 1.4 = 19.6 is this right?
Also you mentioned one of my cells could have reversed polarity.inn which case if i was to measure voltage it would read a -negative voltage right? None of my cells do that. Unless of course i measure voltage with my volt meter leads backwards
