12 to 16 hours should be good enough, your charger is actually a trickle charger meaning it will be lessly to overcharge your batteries

Nimh packs don't need discharging just charge them an initial of at least 12 to 16 hours then you should have power for 1 to 2 hours of playtime remember your current charger is the best way to bring your batteries to full capacity or just leave the receiver on until it discharges then charge it 12 to 16 hours
