Default Charging GP AA Batteries

So I got my son an RC18T with the optional alkaline battery tray that allows you to run it off 4 AA batteries instead of the stick pack.
I have GP 2100 AA batteries.
I would like to quickly charge these batteries since I'm not looking for performance since my son is little and he will just be bashing.
I saw on the GP website that they sell a quick charger that charges them in 15 minutes.
Couldn't I just use my LRP Pulsar to do the same thing? The specs for quick charger on the website says it uses 7000 mA to charge for 15 minutes and give 75% capacity.
I was confused since it is recommended to charge our sub c batteries from 4.5 to 6.0 amps for our packs.
So is it safe to charge these AA at 7.0 amps for 15 minutes on my Pulsar?
If so, what type of cutoff should I use?
