    You have to put in 150% of what you took out to recharge a NiMH pack back to full capacity. Lipos you basically put back in what you took out. The stock charger is not a fast charger! It is a very conservative charge rate which will make the batteries last a lot longer. You should go easy on your packs for the first 6 to 10 charges if you want them to last. Charging FAST at 1C requires a good peak detection charger and even better one with a temp probe. FAST=1C, MODERATE=1/10C, SLOW (trickle)=1/40C.

    I hope you are talking about Ni-Mh batteries, because you should never trickle charge a Lipo, unless one cell went south on you below 3.0 volts, then it is trickle time to 3.2 volts per cell then back to 1C charging.
