Default Help mw with rechargable batteries

Sup Guys,
I bought a C9000 charger and a bunch of duracell eneloop clones.

It says on the battery, 2000maH, and says standard charge is 200mah for 16 hours

So when I put the battery in, should I charge at 200mah or 2000? also, what should i discharge at?

Thanks

Not sure what a C9000 is, but generally C/10 is considered a safe charge rate. For 2000mAH batts that would be 200mAH. However, if it's a "smart" charger, you could charge them at a higher rate, but 2000mA may tend to overheat the cells.

Not sure what you mean by this. If you are discharging, you need to know the rate of discharge, which would be mA not mAH. MAH is battery capacity. 500mA for 9 hours equates to 4500mAH. :-?

LOTS of lasers!

Honestly, I am not addicted to lasers; I can turn them off any time I want to.

Ok, cool beans. I'm just figuring things out. This charger has a lot of modes and settings

Thanks for the input
