Default charge

i finally got a good charger and dont want to abuse my new batteries. now i know there are alot of different factors to consider and a lot of different opinions,but what amperage would you guys charge your 4cell GP 3300's at?i dont know if it matters but they are PowerPush cells 1.172's and 1.170's and finally what i find most confusing is the voltage threshold setting displayed in millivolts

the charger is a Millenium pro and i run 1/12 stock.

thaks,
sean

5 amps is enough, repeak at 5.5, or 6 if you want, if you want long life from the cells, charge and repeak at 5 amps.
