With the stock charger if using larger capacity aftermarket packs do the math. Look at the amp output of the wall transformer. Divide that into the capacity of the pack. That's how long it will take to charge a completely dead pack. Figure about 50 milliamps drain when using the Excal or Sovereign, so you can then do the math by multiplying that by the number of hours hunted and then know how much capacity has been drained out of the pack. Do the math again by dividing the transformer's output into the capacity drained and you'll know how long to charge it back to full. I'd overshoot that number by maybe an hour or so as charging isn't very efficient so it usually takes more time than the math says.

Got to go get read for work! They told me to start late today so no I'm not fired (yet). :biggrin:
