I need someone to take a look at there smart charger and tell me all the voltages and stuff that they have on the bottom.

Just look at it from a - I have to charge these- kind of perspective. Assuming you have the plug needed...
The battery packs are NiMh, which are chargeble at 1/10 of the capacityv in 14-15 hours is a good basis. These chargers give a specific current (A) and shoul be generally avaulable. I'm sure there's a value for Ah (ampere hour) on the battery to determine what current you need. Also, the working voltage should be there somewere.
For faster charges you need a delta V-thing (measuring voltage during charging, there are some home-grown print plate ideas for that, but (at least for AA size) there is commercial stuff available.
