Well I have the NiMh high power cells coming this week, too late for the eneloops. BTW Do they come in Sub C?

The charger is the Sunpak original n I was told by others that have upgraded to NiMh it works just fine.

Anyway, I'll just keep an eye on the temp as I time it to see how long it takes to get em up to 100F, I was told that is the cut off threshold for these cells.

A smart charger is another posability n adapt it to my cell pack configuration?... That's a great idea!

Thanks for the ideas.
