I use the millenium and the millenium pro.
Use the NiCD Linear charge on both chargers. Don't use reverse pulse, that will destroy your battery, and don't use the NiMH setting, it doesn't work for 3300's. If you have the millenium pro, don't use the NiMH2 program, it's crap.
Charge somewhere around 5 and 6 Amps. I use 12mVolt threshold per cell.

In what way is it crap?? I'm not sure how the NiMH2 system works and I've heard once before from someone that its crap, but I am just curious anyway.

You can't adjust delta peak on the NiMH2 setting. It false peaks like crazy with my batteries. NiCD linear program is more reliable.
The NiMH2 setting did work with my Transmitter batteries, though.

Oh okay, that's fair enough I suppose. For troublesome cells I use my CE Pitbull with the long lockout mode on. Works a treat. The Novak with NiMH2 is good though with pretty decent cells, never had an issue and the punch + runtime has always been good.
