I just received a new battery pack 7-cell 2/3a 1100mAh NIMH , It says on the pack to charge for 10 hours at 125mA ,when its done can I use it for flight after the first long low rate 125mA charge or should I discharge it with say a speed 400 motor load or light bulb what ever and then recharge it on my peak charger at 1Amp then fly it ? Im getting confused between the slow charge and when can I just start useing it and fast charging it?:confused:

After the forming charge, use it normally. It'll take a few discharge/charge cycles to get up to full power. Enjoy.
