Default battery and charger match?

It is striking similar to the Tower Hobbies charger sold here.

It is an AC/DC charger that is meant for the entry level charging of sub-C cell R/C car packs. It safely fast charges 6- or 7-cell
batteries using a timer. The ampmeter shows charge progress.

This charges at a 5 Amp rate and is not recommended for charging NiMH batteries. The charge rate is not adjustable on this model.

In summary, I would say that you cannot use this on your smaller battery pack because it dumps too much current for those 270mAh cells.

An inexpensive Great Planes DC ElectriFly Peak Charger should work fine for your pack on the 200mA setting.
