The only way I know is to get a battery charger that will deliver .5 amps.

I'm sure an electrical guru would be able to use something and do it, but not me.

After a short Google search I came up with an 1100 mAh NiMh battery pack. This has been a recommended an an excellent inexpensive charger.
http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...5&I=LXCLD5&P=K You need to do some reading on batteries. One source I use is Red's Battery Clinic. www.rcbatteryclinic.com/

You should also form this pack at a C/10 rate for 14 to 16 hours. "C" is the manufctures rating of the packs capacity. In this case for an 1100 mAh pack it would be 110 mA charge. You can do this best with a constant current charger like these that are sold by NoBs Batteries in the charging section in the middle of the page. www.hangtimes.com/nobsbatteries.html CH96 High Output System Slow Charger 120/180ma $18.00 or something similar as that one is out of stock presently.
