Default Someone who knows chargers and time help me.

OK I have an old radioshack charger (from the old RS garbage I got when I was 8) and it has an output of 9.6 volts and 60mA and I have a venom 7.2 volt 1100Mah 6 cell(for the Micro), can I use this charger? I assume yes but wanna know for sure(I blew up a 1500 pack a while back) and if so How long should I charge it for?

1100mAh / 60mA = your answer, in Hours.

Give or take, you're looking at 24 hrs.

It will put SOME charge in it, but will never "fill them up"

Get another charger. Your pack worth far more than that old charger.
