Default NiMH charge times?

Iupgraded the stock battery in my plane to a 1650 Mah NiMh battery. I still have the stock charger which puts out 50Mah. How long should the battery be charged? Is there a way to figure it out for any given combo of charger/battery?

Thanks,

Dave

Yea, I was going to say.... Oh, about a week.

For an overnight charge of 10-12 hours.. You're looking at a charger of 165mA.
