Hi

 

How long should I be charging a 1600 MA Nihm battery for with a 300Ma charger?

 

I have only been doing them for 1.5-2 hours is this enough or too much?

 

Thanking you in advance

Battery capacity divided by charger output multiplied by 1.4 will equal charging time in hours.

 

example.....1100 / 250 x 1.4 = 6.16 hours.

 

 

taken from another site, but plenty of easy to use google calculators as well.

So for yours I would say around 7 and a half hours to 8 hours charge to full charge, 2 hours will barely tickle it!

That would be correct if you had 100% efficiency Josh, but unfortunately electronics aren't that good.
