I never charge the batteries while they are in the scanner, one should always charge them in an external charger

Just messing with you. Ive been working in computers and electronics since in my early teens ('70s). Dang I'm getting old.
I just remember using a 2.0A charger when I first bought my 436 and the battery compartment was very hot after a few hours (Why I looked at groups about heating issues). I started using 1.0A charger and it wouldn't get as hot. Just a personal observation. I
recharge on a external charger now.
I was never able to find any amperage ratings for the 436, just voltage 5V ±5%.
Thanks for the info, have a good week. Be Safe!
