I am trying to restore a villian IV boat back to run.... It came with three NiCd battery packs and no charger, so I am looking for a charger and probably batteries since I don't know if these batteries are still good.

My question is - what should i look for? there are 6 cells in the battery pack, each are 1.2 v and 1300 mAh. Do I add the volt and mAh, which would be 7.2 v and 7800 mAh?

Thanks for any advice... I am trying to keep cost down until I get more familiar with the hobby.

Appreciate any help.
