How to charge a TX MH battery

Can someone tell me what amp to charge my 1650 MH battery on a Triton charger? Or at least the formula used to charge MH batts?

Thanks,

Bach

I have two of those 1650 nimh TX packs and a Triton. I usually charge at .3-.4 amps with a peak sensitivity of 5mV per cell. Takes anywhere from 2-5 hours for a good, slow charge which won't damage the cells at all. I have charged one of them at 1 amp once. Was in the field and wasn't feeling good about my TX voltage going below 9V. Charged for about 1 hour, no ill effects.

One more question Matt . .

When you cycle the batts, what discharge rate do you use?

normally I hook them on the Triton at 1.6 amp charge 2.5 amp discharge and set it to the "disc to Chg" for 3 cycles usually the first cycle is pretty low but the next two are over 1700mah. Done
