Ni Cad Charging

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I have a fast charger for NiCad 7.2V batteries. It has an analog timer on it and I know that I charge an 1100MAH stick pack for 15 minutes. What time would I charge an 1800 MAH pack for? I am thinking 25 minutes, am I far off?

Re: Ni Cad Charging

I think you are in the right range. I mean I got an old Simcoe quick charger that`s about 24 years old and it takes me about 35 minutes or more with the 7.2 volt packs. But then again the charger is old so that may explain why it is slow charging with the analog timer of which I need to crank it back about four or five times just to get the pack charged.
