Default charging RX nmih batteries?

Ok I only have a standard Futaba Rx/Tx charger and a multiplex charger.

all my rx batteries are nmih and i'm using the multiplex charger for these, however it has a 1.5 hour safety timer and cuts of, meaning I cannot charge at anything other than a little under 1c....

What options do I have?

can the futaba charger be used on nmih? or is it nicad only...?

or does anyone know of a cheap rx charger which is suitable?

I have a 2000 mAh nMhi 4.8 pac and was told
it has too much resistance for the Stock futaba
wal wart charger.

Well, considering I have charged many of them with my wall wart, and they haven't failed me yet, I'd say they work

Not wall MART... I said wall WART

"wall wart" is a nickname for the charger that came with the radio
