1 amp would be OK. It would charge faster, but you may want to charge it at around .8 since I think the battery may last a little longer that way.

The basic rule is not to exceed 1.5X the battery rating. Therefore, a 600mah battery should not be charged at more than 900ma (0.9A). Any faster and the battery could be damaged.

You can charge most NI-MH's up to 2C with non problems. Main thing is to watch the heat during charging.
