Default 6 volt chargers - modifying

Hi Guys!!
With the new 6v battery packs of different amperage capacities, has anyone modified an existing 6v charger with higher amperage (by lowering the amperage) to charge a pack. Like taking a 6v 400mah charger and reducing the amperage to either 220mah or 180 mah?

If anyone knows how to do this, please let me know.

I would image it would require placing a resistor in one of the wires but (1) how to determine what size resistor and (2) how to check what the amp output of the charger is.
