Not really sure what your question is exactly, but if you're wondering about what modes & settings to try, I'd suggest you start with using the P0 or P1 charge mode & do it at 1-1.5 amps(& do not use trickle charging, not needed & it can damage NiMh cells). And just make sure to keep a close eye on the pack to make sure it's not overheating(just in case).....

Well, it depends a little bit on the weather where you are, but I'd say if a battery is getting any hotter than 140 degrees F then you may be pushing your luck(& many of use will base what kind of voltage drop we look for in a pack by the temp it reaches, if one gets hotter, then use a narrower voltage threshold so it won't get as hot)....
