    I have 8 NIMH rechargeable batterries. Each one is rated at 1.25 Volts, 2700 mAH.
    The slow charge for each is rated at 150 mA for 14-16 hours.
    The fast charge for each is 4-6 hours at 350 mA

    I have combined all 8 batteries into a single battery holder that outputs a little above 9 volts which is perfect for powering my small 7 inch FPV monitor that takes a 9 volt power source.

    My question is this. To charge all 8 batteries in the single housing, in the Hitec X4, what should I set the NIMH settings for a standard regular charge, and what would the settings be for a quick charge.

    Would I set the total mAH rating at 8 times 2700 or 21,600?

    Any help would be appreciated

    Your mAH remains the same when the batteries are put in series, so to answer your question... NO it's not 8 times

    What amp rate should I charge at?
    And what should the cutoff voltage be when I program the Hitec?
