I just got a Mh-C401FS charger and Sanyo 2700 rechargeable batteries. Charger instructions say about 5 hours at slow and 100 minuters at fast to charge batteries. What I am reading on these forums seem to indicte that these particularbatteries need to be charged 14-18 hours at least for first time charging. Can anyone give me the real answer?

Personally, I'd let the charger decide when they're fully charged. This is a microprocessor controlled "smart" charger that uses a pulse type technology. I'd use the slow charge mode.


With some chargers, you can simply restart a second charge cycle again if you wanted to try that. But, it may go straight to a trickle cycle again (that's going to vary by charger and I don't know how this one is going to behave).

Chances are, you'll see better battery efficiency after more than one discharge and recharge after you use them more.

There are some good replacement battery on-line shop which offer a affordable price battery pack for the customer spare use.
