Charge time for Venom 5000mah 8.4v

I have just purchased a set of Venom 5000mah 8.4 (7 cell) batteries along with a Juicebox 2 (5amp) dual charger - charges 2 batteries simultaneously.

Considering I am a newb to electric I need to know how long I should allow my batteries to charge and at what output. The charger doesn't have the output voltage/wattage written on the dial, only a progressively increasing bar much like that you'd find on the dial of a window-mounted air conditioner.

The battery is rated at 5000mah, and the charger is rated at 5 amps (twin). As far as I understand, this indicates that I can theoretically charge the batteries with the dial turned to max; but for how long?

Thanks for any help!

yes you can charge the battery at 5amps and it will take about 1 hour to charge.
