What kind of battery do you have?

For an assembled stick pack, I would recommend an overnight trickle charge at C/10 for any pack, this will help to re-equalise the cells after storage.

For single cells, I would recommend either a trickle charge ot the use of an equalising board before the first charge. If you choose a fast charge, don't go crazy on the amps, give the cells a gentler first charge after they have been resting for a while.

c/10 is the capacity of the batter divided by 10

it if you are using 3800mah batteries you would charge at 380miliamps or as close as your charger can get to that number
