    Rapid Charge Current: 1000mA (AA), 500mA (AAA)
    Trickle Charge Current: 50mA
    Slow (Gentle) Charge Current: 300mA (AA), 200mA (AAA)


    The above the specification are obtained from: http://www.mahaenergy.com/store/Item...&cur=specs#mid

    Hence, if your batteries are rated 2500mAh and they are fully depleted, it will take 2.5 hours to completely charge the batteries at rapid charge mode.

    For me, I normally use the gentle charge mode, hence the charging time will take longer.

    I would suggest you go for this one.

    After twice encounter with MH-C401FS (my friend had similiar problems) that melted my batteries, the one with can charge more batteries seems to be the best choice for now.

    If you just need to charge 4 x AA, then Maha MH-C9000 is good.
