Your transmitter is probably around 600mAh so charge it at .5A or less. The receiver pack could be 1100mAh, charge it at 1A or less.

As far as i know, the safest way to determin the charge rate is to charge it at 1X. if the cells have a capacity of 600mah, then charge at 600ma. i have had the same charger for a couple years and only problem i have ever had was burnt fuses on the occasion. there is also a sticker that comes with the charger that has a table on the recommended charge rates for the size of the cell (physical size not capacity)
