What is the fastest I can charge my Eneloop NiMh 2000mah transmitter battery safely without damaging the cells? Is 1c to much for them?

I've had mine for a couple of years and I charge it at .8 amps, these batteries are great, no need to go with ions or lipos. Performance is good and not very much lost during idle.

Full charge on my TX 11.6v.

1 - 2 weeks sitting 10.9 - 11.1v

Thanks for the reply, I did my first charge at .5 but will bump it up to .8 and see how it goes. So if I am at the field and just happen to forget the radio was dead (hope it never happens) can I charge at 1c or 2amps without damage?

The slower the charge, the easier it is on the battery. If you can afford the time, slower rates are to be preferred . . .

I tend to always slow charge at home before I fly, and only fast charge if needed at the field . . .

I read they need to charge between .7 and 1 amp on a delta peak charger for accurate peak detection. I use .7 amps, it has worked great for the past 2 years. First charge should be a "conditioning" charge with a wall wart calculated for 1.4 x capacity.
