I just got my Batteries and Charger in from Atomicmods. I got the powerex MH-C9000 and the R1wurks 750 UHO batteries.

My questoin is this. What the heck am I supposed to charge these at? They are 750mAh batteries if my research is correct. The instructions say to charge em at break in. I selected 800 on the screen for the charge. Did I do it right? I cant find 750 so... did I screw up?:confused:

Edit:

ok so after reading the back of the package I think I should have set the amps to 1A or 1000mAh is this correct?

I think 800 should be good... at least for the first few charges. In general, it is recommended to charge cells at 1C, or at the capacity rating. 1A is a little high for these cells, and they may vent. Some vents you can charge at higher amperage, I personally have had these cells vent on me when charging at 1A. At 700/800 you shouldnt have a problem, and the cells will still be plenty quick.

Thanks a bunch. This charger has a break in for new cells... It says that it'll charge em over 45 hours with a discharge in there somewhere... which its doing now LOL.. I guess I did ok!

EMU your help has been awesome. Thanks for looking at all the forums here and imparting your wisdom on us new guys.

Sounds like you set it on the break in setting, which is just fine for the first charge.
