Default Charging GP2500

Hiya,

I just got some GP2500 rechargable batteries for my 3PK... I was wondering what settings I should use for charging/discharging these on my Cell Master.

TIA

THX,

just noticed that they are actually 2600..

what about step charging? like 0-1500 2A, 1500-2100 1A, 2100-2900 0.3A?

I charge my gp2300's on .5 amps on my APS. I do not have step charging though.

Can I charge the batts at a higher rate? Like 2 amps? How do the GP "charged in 15 minutes" chargers work?
