Nicd Battery Charger
charging nimh cells on a nicd charger?

i have a piranha peak power battery charger. it says only to charge nicd batteries. but could i get away with charging nimh? or is there a modification i could make to it in order for this to work? it charges at 4.5A max and trickle is 50-300mA. and if so what is the biggest battery i should charge with it? ive seen some big batteries out on the market these days. up to 4300 mAh. should i stay away from som thing that big?

No,

Fast charge NiCd and NiMh chargers are different. It may appear to work, but you will be destroying your NiMh Batteries.
