@Silver0066 Are you charging 2 batteries at a time or just 1 battery? My Model V-818 battery charger from Magic Flight states on the back: One (1) NiMH AA - charges at 1400 mA Two (2) NiMH AA - charges at 700 mA When I charge one battery at a time it gets VERY hot upon completion. When I charge two batteries at a time they get moderately hot upon completion. Excessive heat is not good for NiMH batteries, either charging or discharging. That is why I recently bought a Powerex Maha MH-C9000 charger/analyzer/conditioner. Couldn't be more pleased.
