    depends on charger and charge rate barry,
    but as a guide, if I charge with an old ansmann charger I have at max charge rate of 750mah,
    then a 3000mah battery would take 4 hours ,
    but have a looksy at yer charger and the instructions, should be in there somewhere,
    does get a bit confusing sometimes with half English instructions sometimes though

    if you charge it at a rate of 1 amp then set your charger to 3 amps ( 3000 mah = 3 amps ) but if it can be charged at a rate of 2 amps then you can set your charger at 6 amps ... it shouldn't take that long and i always done mine at a rate of 1 amp because a slow charge is meant to be better ....

    Just my 2p but when i got my son's new hump pack it said to trickle charge it for 24hrs to extend the battery life... but it didn't say what it classed as a trickle tho and i couldnt do it anyway because I only have 1amp as my lowest setting on my charger
