    Traxxas 1200 NiMh 7.2 broken


    Posting this for a guy that i know.
    He have a 2 weeks old 1/16 e revo brushed and the battery is already broken.
    It would not charge and if it charge on a computer charger the battery is still empty.
    It got also hot after a run on a stock brushed truck...

    Any good replacement nimh battery that handle discharging better so it would not get so hot?

    Charging a battery on a charger with a different voltage is unsafe

    Go to your LHS (local hobby shop) and they’ll most likely have what you need.

    I can't believe you would even try to charge a battery off a computer. haha All nimh batteries get hot while discharging. Especially if you are running them hard. If it is fairly new. You apparently either have a bad battery or charger.
