I have a Common Sense RC ACDC-6 charger that I bought for my rc cars. I use LiPo in my cars and have it figured out how to charge those with my charger but I can't figure out NiCd or Ni-MH. I need to know how to find the correct charge current for these two types of batteries.

There is a section in this charger manual that will help determine charge rates.

To hover is divine, the alternative is rather PLANE.

Generally speaking, standard charge rate is C/10 and fast charge rate is 1C.

The problem I'm having is that my manual which is a very bad translation to English from some other language, is that it tells me I have to set what they call a charge current for the Nixx type batteries. What I need to know is how to figure out what this value should be from the information given on a battery pack itself. So, one of my batteries is a 4.8V 1100mAhr NiCd 4 cell receiver pack. Using that info, how would I figure out what the charge current should be?

If you read the manual that I posted it will explain it.
