    Found this Charger. Can i use it?

    I have been thinking about buying one of the 4200 maH NImh 7.2V battery packs at Batteryspace. But I didn't want to spend all that much on it and with the charger it was over 50 bucks. Then i found this charger in the garage. It is a Radio Shack Cat. No. 23-416 4.8V, 6.0 V, 7.2V, 9.6V, Ni-cd/Hi-Mh charger.

    Can i use it? I can't seem to find much info on it online.



    Edit---I'm thinking not. Here is the manual. http://www.radioshack.com/graphics/u...0416_PM_EN.pdf

    I don't think the amps are high enough.

    Or maybe it is...i'll keep researching. Any thoughts?

    If the charger is in working condition and you know what your doing, it should work. But since you have to ask, i don't think you are very confident with your knowledge.

    This will charge a 7.2v pack with ease... it will just take a little longer.

    I understand electronics well enough but I am just not certain if the current output of the charger is significant. Looking that the charger that battery space recommends for this pack, it says that the charger should be set on the 2 amp rating for batteries over 2000 mAh. The charger in my possession only says 1.5 amp. So thus my concern.
