IMax B6 Help

Does anyone have a basic tutorial I can read about charging my NiMH 9.6 1600mah batteries with a Imax B6. Im really new to airsoft and dont want to fry anything trying to quickly charge my batteries.

afaik:
connect the battery (duh)
set nimh mode, (for your battery) set 1.6A (or auto, and let the delta p/computer figure it out)
hold start

wait for the beeping (should take a while)

It's funny cuz I typed in three words and found 15 vids of how to do it, and yes for nimh batteries. I'm also not a dick I happen to be a very helpful and easy going person, But as usual ppl need to be spoon fed on this forum... Go figure. A wee bit more then 15 minutes of research may be required, also I'd have steered you in right direction if you had some humility too.

Example: I tried you tube and I was unable to find a video that pertained to my particular battery, what can you suggest I try to search?

Now this shows that your not expecting to be handed an answer but are looking for guidance in the right direction.

It seems more and more kids today have a hard time researching the easiest of things.

Yeah, it's fast. You bought a good charger, and your battery wasn't empty (normally). Since the normal rate people recommend is 1C, that means it takes ONE hour (1 "c" = the mah rating of your battery, that's why 1.6 amp was suggested as a speed) to charge it fully, give or take a couple of minutes since the charger is not constant (going slower in the end to do a better charge).

Now, since you left it on auto, the charger, well, charged at the fastest rate it deems to be safe, which means that it takes 30 minutes for 2c, etc, etc.

Grab a multi meter or volt meter if you really need to know if it's fully charged. A 9.6v battery usually sits around 10.6v when fully charged.

In the box the charger came with (mine is black) there was the charger (mine was blue), a bunch of cords, finally there was a white thing with some blue print on it and some staples in it. It should say "instruction manual" somewhere on the front. Regardless when you opened it up there was a bunch of writing on each page, after flipping through, (to page 21 on mine) there was a fairly straight forward step by step walk through for NICd/NIMH batteries.
