I have seen 3000mah A cells charged at 10 amps. Then again they are designed for it and are discharged at 25+ amps.
Typical nimh aa cell will run hot when loaded at 1A. Which AA cells can supply 25A?
I did not say AA, I said A cells (often 5/4 A). Yes, they get hot enough when discharged you cant hold them in your hands very long. I remember they were Sanyo. Used in R/C plane, flight time of 6 to 8 minutes. -- Scott Henion
