it is safe to charge nimh in series – but always use a low charging current

i regularly charge a 16 AA nimh pack (all in series), however i charge it at 200 or 300ma on a hobby charger… and cells that are overcharged will burn off excess energy in the form of heat, the low current prevents them from getting to hot (i also use a temperature probe to monitor while charging)

Would you mind keeping the wrong flashlight?

what is the capacity of the batteries?

if the capacity is 2000mah then thats around 0.4c

i would be very hesistant to use a charging cradle for a 6s pack and not a hobby charger unless its known to be reliable and have a temp shut down if it gets too hot

normally it using Li Ion 7.2V 1200mAh.
with this case and AAA NiMH eneloop about 800mA or less
