Just remember to *turn down the charge rate*! AA batteries are not designed to accept the high charge rates sub-C's are, and will likely explode if you charge them at more than .5 amps, and you will probly want to monitor them very closely at that rate and make sure they don't heat up. Overall, if you have any other way of charging them, I'd use it.

you need to be able to charge at one amp.

Check on your radio for a charging connection. A lot of radios have them and it makes charging much simpler than taking them out and putting them in a holder.

its not about that, he wants to charge AA's for his camera. And yes, it will work ive done same thing, but try not to go past 1,5A or the wires will get really hot, and so will batteries

Agreed, I also do it that way, though for me it's with 8 cell packs that I use in my transmitter. I just leave 'em in the holder, connect my charger's alligator clips to the positive & negative contacts of the holder, set the rate at 1 amp, & it works fine..... :cool:
