Hey guys, first post here. I read a thread with some battery related questions, and had a few of my own to ask. I am pretty far into an N64 portable, but I want to be able to charge and play at the same time. In the other thread someone suggested a smart charger that supplied 1.2 amps. I wired up my entire system and tested the amp draw and got a reading on 1.5. So I looked around and found on this one eBay. m.ebay.com/itm/321683890784?_trksid=p2141725.m3641.l6368 It supplies 2 amps, but I'm concerned about my batteries (canon bp911 camcorder batteries) maybe not being able to handle it. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks guys.

from everything i understand about batteries, amps when charging do not effect battery life. they simply decide how fast the batteries charge. as long as the voltage is correct, the amps don't matter. in terms of battery safety that is. amps matter when it comes to charge speed and being able to provide charge and play at same time.
now, in regards to the charger you linked... i personally wouldn't get that one. but i may be slightly paranoid. i don't trust chinese chargers/batteries. esp when the charger looks that cheap. a good smart charger will be a bit bigger, esp at that high of an amperage.
this is strictly an example of what i mean. DO NOT GET THIS CHARGER PICTURED as it's only for 3.7v. it's only for an example of a well made, sturdy, long lasting smart charger:
unfortunately, batteryspace.com, where i get all my batteries and chargers from, do not seem to offer anything above 1.2A charging for a 7.4v setup. which is odd, as every other voltage has higher then that.

cheap chinese stuff is often faulty or not actually what it's meant to be. and when you're dealing with something as potentially dangerous as li-poly/li-ion batteries... i tend to just stay away from cheap stuff.
