charge them at 3-4A they can handle it at 1A they will take a godly long time to charge. if you need a new charger try a durtrax pirhana cheap and can handle 3A off of a wall socket or up to 5A off a power supply

You ideally want an adjustable rate charger...

3.8amps is the max you should charge at 1 x capacity)...

Is Great Hobbies near you in PEI? they also offer on line shopping but the sales people in the store are very helpful.

I personally use the MRC977 dual output charger but many others are available.
