Default how long to charge?

I was wondering how long do you charge a set (tx & rx) futuba batteries after they are fully discharged?

Thanks, Matt

Matt,

Never fully discharge a battery pack. If they are NiCd or Nimh, discharge to about 0.9V per cell. For example, if it is a 4-cell pack, you should discharge it to not lower than 3.6V.

The charging duration in hours can be calculated using this formula: C/charge rate x 1.6 where C is your battery pack capacity in mah.
