Park Flyers- Initial Battery Charge?

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I'm new to this game and am still in need of some equipment. I need a battery charger that can do both Tx and Rx. (Dont have OEM charger that comes with the radio) So I'm looking at a few peak chargers that will do a min. of 8 cells. The problem is that they dont charge low enough to do an initial charge on a 7.2V 150 mah battery. What I do have is a couple of chargers for 9V nicads that have outputs of 9Vdc 10ma and 9Vdc 16mah. Will either of these work for the initial charge?

Also, the 16mah charger has a built in 15 hr timer. I figured 150mah x 1.4 / 16ma = 13 hrs of charge time, so would I harm anything to leave it charging for an extra 2 hrs?

Thanks for any help.
