    You shouldn't.
    You use amperage to charge, not voltage.

    On the back of the pack in fine print you will find that you can charge it at 1.2 amps for the fastest charging. This method will shorten the lifespan of the pack, so .3 (notice the "." is before the 3) is recommended.
    Whatever it is I just typed... could be wrong.

    i know that
    what im getting at is there a certian voltage that is best to charge the battery at
    i have a prophet sport2 and after a charge the battery is to hot(being charged at 1ah) hotter than what it would be than after a run
    but i am getting a hyperion 0720i net3 ad charger and since you can program the charging voltage i would like to charge the pack with the least heat involved

    I know what you want to do. Change the voltage sensitivity to 5mv rather than the stock 7mv.
