Default Hobbico autocharger 900 and 3000 nimh

I just bought a new 3000mah nimh batery for my car. i was wondering if an old hobbico 900 charger that i bought 5 years ago would ruin the batery.

i have another question. towerhobbies has a liitle table that tells you how much you should charge your bateries.

SPECS: Pack Rating Charge Time in Minutes:
1300 to 1500 mAh: 15 - 23 minutes
1700 to 2000 mAh: 28 - 33 minutes approx.
I have a 3000mah nimh baterry, how long do you think i should charge mine for

If you really don't mind standing over yur pack and constantly checking the temperature then go ahead and use it!!!!

For 3000's I think you will be in the 45 min. range.... But don't go by that....

Peak chargers are cheap anymore, so go ahead and get one... your batteries and wallet will thank you!!!!
