The way I read this thread, the cords to the MH-16 charger can be rated anywhere from 7 amperes to 10 amps and still run cool enough to not be damaged while charging. (I agree that the 10 amp ones provide extra safety margin.)

I agree that heating of the cord is what you need to be aware of. (Feeling both ends of the AC cord at the end of the charge, before unplugging things, should be enough precaution. And do not locate a powered charger or its cords next to a flammable material such as cloth.)

For what it is worth, the label on my MH-16 charger reads, Input: 100-240V, 0.4A. That is less than one amp. (So it appears that any cord mentioned here is more than adequate for a working charger, but a defective charger could heat up the cord to the point where its black stuff begins to melt and become dangerous. I doubt if a defective battery is likely to do the same.)

Finally, my tested, working MH-16 charger is for sale here in Kansas, USA. I'll make its AC cord optional if you already have one and will include a copy of the MH-16 manual. $39 anyone? (Free photos available on request from DaveWooster at hotmail dot com )
