Battery charge time

Whilst the manual for my K50 states expected recharge time for the battery, cannot find same info in the K5 manual

Appreciate times can change for old batteries but wondered typically how long peeps find it takes for the light on the charger to change?

Have spent the day really running them down and put first one on a couple of hours ago so keen to compare times

The K-5's battery has a higher capacity so I'd expect it to take a bit longer, but both require several hours.
