I forgot to add to my last post:
I also used an original battry pack for the MP120.
Looking to the type of cells in it:
VARTA NiMH 1100 mAh
I used absolutely the same type as single cells.
if a cell is damaged it is getting hot even with the normal C/10 charging
current. The power adapter for the MP12 is not capable to deliver too high
So the overheating that was reported might well have to do with using an
improper power adaptor.
