    Charge ID NiMH battery with Tenergy charger?

    The answer to this may be well known so I apologize ahead of time.

    Can I use my Tenergy balance charger to charge these new ID NiMH batteries? It has a Traxxas plug adapter.

    Or can ID batteries only be charged with Traxxas ID chargers?

    Thanks

    You would need Traxxas part number 2938.

    no problem charging NiMH batteries without an additional adapter since NiMH do not have a balance connection.

    Whoops. I had LiPo on the brain. PC is correct - the adapter I linked would only be useful for 2S and 3S LiPo packs.

    Edit: Thanks for the correction.

    no worries, I also had 3 takes before I realized it was about a NiMH not a LiPo
