2.0 out of 5 stars Questionable charger - No Status Lights, Appears to Overheat Batteries
While I haven't time to fully evaluate these batteries and charger, it is surprising there isn't even a basic status light on the charger. This leads me to believe that it continuously trickle charges the batteries, which would be damaging to the batteries and potentially a fire hazard at 300 ma.

2.0 out of 5 stars Questionable charger - No Status Lights, Appears to Overheat Batteries, September 22, 2012
= Durability:3.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:4.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Combo: 2 pcs Tenergy 9.6V 2000mAh NiMH High Capacity Battery Packs + 15V 400mah Simple Pack Charger (for 8.4V-12V packs) for RC Car, Robots, Security (Toy)
While I haven't time to fully evaluate these batteries and charger, it is surprising there isn't even a basic status light on the charger. This leads me to believe that it continuously trickle charges the batteries, which would be damaging to the batteries and potentially a fire hazard at 300 ma. Realistically, safe continuous trickle charging should be at C/30 or about 67 milliamps (2000/30). Without further details, it is difficult to ascertain as manufacturers have different safe limits.

That being said, it isn't clear what the charger is doing due to the lack of status lights. Also, some elements of the item description are incorrect. The charge is 300 ma -- there is nothing that is "400 mah", where the "h" represents hours for total capacity. That is to say, chargers are rated in current "ma" not "mah". Also, it is 300ma not 400ma. The obvious error is cause for concern.
