Default What settings to charge at without hurting the batts?

Hi Guys,

Just wondering what the best setting to charge batteries is? I have a Swallow charger and it has the ability to change the rate of charge, but the manual doesn't explain what rate to set the charge at.

For pretty much anything on the market from GP3300's to IB3800-4200

Use a 6 amp linear charge with .02/.04 mv per cell peak detect. Use the lower for hot weather conditions, and the latter for cooler ambient temps.
