Default What Charger to use

I have an Attack 2 channel radio with charger jack in battery compartment. It calls for 8 AA alkaline batteries. I'd like to use 8 AA Ni-mh batteries. What charger should I use. My Futaba charger says use only with ni-cd. Any suggestions

Default RE: What Charger to use

G'day Mate,
It will work with NiMh cells, just make sure the charge rate is not too high, needs to be 1/10 of the batter capacity, IE, 600Mah cells, charge at 60Ma, 800Mah cells charge at 80Ma.
& charge for at least 16 hours, Check this site, for more info.
