Default RE: Wall Charger Question...

My ammeter sucks. Just a small portable one that reads to 10A for 15 seconds safely.
Yea I was detecting max amps, I'll do it in series but it's sort of a pain with the leads.

When checking amps per say on a 2700mah AA battery I have, it gives me 10+ amperes (no load on battery) and if i leave the leads on the +/- the battery gets warm fast. So I assume the ammeter itself is a kind of load when connected that way.
Thus, I believe the 1.6a given was max current.

Thanks for the info.
