The ad does not include NiMH bats in the list of batteries it is able to charge but further down it does give the number of cells it will charge but groups it in with Nicad batteries.

NiCd/NiMH battery cell count: 1~27 cells.

I would contact them and ask if there is a separate setting for NIMH batteries.
Using the same setting as Nicads is not a good idea.
There should be a setting for each type of battery.


Other than that it looks like a great charger.
Buying a charger with built in balancing like this one is the best way to go.

I bought an FMA Cellpro 10s which charges & balances up to 10 cells.

Yet that is how my rather expensive Accucycle Elite works.

Re: hobbycity.com any good??

I bought the G.T. Power A6 and it works great!
However the temp probe was wired wrong. Since it wouldn't be used much anyway I kept the charger and didn't complain.
Been using it a month now and it's a great little charger.
