I need some help here. I just bought my son a bandit vxl for christmas. I fly helis and planes with lipos and the charger I use is the bantam bc6 and i have no problem charging lipos. Its an awesome charger and it also can charge everything else. So heres the question. I set it up for nimh and the pack is an 8 cell 4500mah. Does anyone know the correct way to charge this pack? I can only get 1700mah to go back into this battery? The mah on the charger is set to 4500 but it just wont go past 1700 for me?

Any help will be great....thanks

Do you mean that the charge rate won't go past 1700?

Or, when it finished, it has only put 1700 back in?

Hell... I can fix that.
Uh oh..

Do you mean that the charge rate won't go past 1700? yes and i have it set to 5600 on the charger?

Or, when it finished, it has only put 1700 back in? yes

yeah it wont charge past 1700 mah in nimh mode and i cant figure out why? i have 2 packs and there both 4500 and both do the same and there brand new. i would guess its like lipos when putting back in mah right? it should charge like them i would guess....

The BC6 will only put back what the battery is capable of taking.

I had a bc6 and I think there is a setting for max mAh's. If that number is reached, it will shut off. You say you can only put back 1700 right? Is that the exact number it takes everytime? If so then I believe it has to be a max charge setting in the charger menu somewhere. I don't remember how to change it, but it is in the manual.
