So, I have 3 parallel 8-battery packs of nimh batteries wired in series - a total of 24 AA batteries. One battery is 1300 mah so I assume this should give me a total of 3900 mah. This gives me 9.6 volts or 11 volts at full charge for a voltage of 1.375 for a single battery. Can I charge this connected directly to a trickle charge 12 volt 5 watt solar panel with a current of .28 amps (280 ma) since this is lower than the 10% which would be 390 ma?
