Now - as I see Venom doesn't have any big cell count Lipo packs, but a mass of 7 cell NiMHs, I guess you were asking about the Venom 5000 NiMHs packs.

The 1C fast charge still applies to NiMHs as a general rule, but they are a lot more forgiving at higher charge rates. I still suggest you follow the mfgr recommendation when it comes to charge current. I tried, but could not find any specs on the packs either at the Venom site, nor at TowerHobbies. Specs or recommendations ought to be included with the packs.

I've used my automatic charger on my old NiMHs so I haven't payed a lot of attention to the exact chargerate, nor time to complete.
