Trickle charge??

O.k. I have several different size NIMH & NICD batts. what would be a good trickle for say a 2000 nimh and a 1100 nicd, I also have some 700 and 600 ma nicds.. I'd like to charge them for there regular times and then keep them ready to fly. I have a multi charger that has 10, 25, 50, 100, 250, and 500 settings. Thanks for any feed back guys!!!

In the Sanyo NiCd applications manual, they say a trickle charge is C/50. Probably good for NiMh as well.

For a different approach, go here and in the left frame, click on "Keep your batteries in the ready state without damaging overcharge". Red is talking mainly about TX and RX packs, but you can adapt the idea.
