How does GWS
How does charging current relate to capacity?
First of all, make sure of the rate for a given length of Charging and use the following rule: amps = Capacity / time to charge e.g. to charge a 1200 mAh battery in 20 minutes requires a current setting of 3.6 amps: amps = 1200 mAh / .33 h = 1.2 ah * 3 h =3.6 amps. The same rule can also be reworked to determine how long it will take to charge a battery at a given current: time to charge = Capacity / amps e.g. The time it takes to charge a 1500 mAh battery at 5 amps is 18 minutes: time to charge = 1500 mah / 5 amps = 1.5 ah / 5 a = .3 h = 18 minutes. The charging process is not totally efficient some of the energy is lost as heat and the charging takes place a little longer than this.
What are the battery cells and charge rates that MC 2002 charger can work?
MC 2002 can charge 4~12 cells of 50~3000mAh Ni-MH or Ni-CD battery packs rapidly at three charge rates of 1C, 2C and 1/2C. Please check http://www.gws.com.tw/english/service/book/aux_manual.htm for more details.

Will GWS chargers work with NiMH cells?
Absolutely GWS standard slow or trickle charger as supplied with most radio systems will work with both NiCad and NiMH batteries. For fast charging, it's best to use a charger which specifies that it is suitable for NiMH. Since the characteristics of NiCad and NiMH cells are slightly different, the best chargers have different programs which allow them to terminate the charge in various ways.
