NiCad Delta Peak Charger with NiMH?
Am I risking anything by using a NiCd Delta Peak Detect charger (Hitec CG....can't remember the number) to charge NiMH packs??
Thanks in advance.

If your charger is designed to charge only NiCd (like the CG-315, CG-330, CG-335) and you charge a NiMH, yes, you risk over charging your pack because the peak will not be detected. The CG-335 Pro & CG-340 is rated for both battery types.

I have used a cg-320 (?) for a long time on nicads and nimhs.
Just don't leave it charging unattended. Sometimes it will apparently miss the peak and continue charging.
I recently bought a Hobbico MKII for nicads, nimhs, and lipos.
It misses peaks too so new is not necessarily better.
