    first, you need to tell us what charger are you using. what type of batteries you put into the charger does not matter (as long as it's not alkaline)

    From the original charger, the green light doesn't turn off at all even after a full charge. U've to time yourself 10hrs from time of start charge.

    "old type" doesn't tell us much. how old? 1yr? 5yrs? 10yrs? there're lots of chargers out in the market and every brand has different indicator for charge status.

    gee, 10 hours from the start of charging.
    wat if the battery was charged before it's fully drained? also 10 hours?

    Why should u not use until the battery is weak then recharge? I always use until my flash can't recharge anymore then i'll know that it's weak, then i charge.

    Because Nickel Metal Hydride batteries have a minimum voltage required, usually when you finish the power inside it, the voltage goes under its minimum requirement, and will shorten the lifespan of the battery. So you should never fully discharge a NiMH battery.

    That i'm aware, but i never let it become so weak until the flash unit can't be turned on. Once it doesn't recharge anymore or extremely slow to recharge, i'll take it out for recharging.

    i think this is a very rare case for the voltage of the batt to be very low. by the time your flash takes longer than 6s to fully charge up, it's a hint that the battery needs charging. although if you test the voltage at that moment, it'll still be over 1.2V
