Default Sanwa M11 Nicad - charge rate.

Hi guys, ive jsut received my m11 from RC champ in Japan, and hence cant use the 110v wallwart charger included as I use 240v here in Australia.

I would like to charge the included 1100mah nicad using my r/c charger, the minimum charge rate on my charger is .5amp.

I always charged my m8 8 cell AA pack at 1 amp safely.

what rate would be safe to charge the m11 nicad at? considering the slowcharger included charges at 75ma.

Finally, the manual doesnt state how long the standard 75ma charger takes to fully charge a depleted pack, and with no cutoff,
Am i supposed to guess?

thanx in advance

i have a Helios, i charged at 1 amp....works ok.
recently i got rid of the nicad pack and got some new Sanyo Eneloop 2000mah Nihm AA's They hold max voltage (10+) a lot longer.
