    Does your charger have adjustable peak detection? If so set it to 0.02 - 0.03 volts (6-cell pack). Your five cell pack should be charged at 1 amp & set peak detection to 0.02 volts or 25mv. Sometimes my servo packs take up to 45 mins to fully charge @ 1 amp.

    how do you recharge a reciever pack?

    You should charge your RX batteries depending on their capacity, ie. 1100mah battery charge up to 1.1amp untill it peaks. For 1200mah battery, charge up to 1.2 amps and so on. Or you can charge at a lower amp rate for a longer peroid of time. Whatever the pack's capacity, divide it by the charge rate (converted to milliamps), and you'll have an accurate estimate of how long it will take to charge a dead battery. Maximum charge rates for most Ni-Cd and NiMH receiver batteries = one times capacity, e.g., a 1000mAh pack should be charged at no more than 1000ma (or 1 amp)
    The whole process becomes less safe once the charge rate exceeds the packs capacity.

    so how do i connect it to a recharger? the connecter is a lot smaller than the tamia connectors on the charger

    Go to the LHS and get a pigtail to fit your connector @ the battery and your charger, and wire them together, make an addapter, maybe you can find one premade at the LHS.
