    You can charge lipos at 5 or higher.


    Always completely discharge nimh batteries before charging so they don't acquire a memory.
    Let battery cool before charging (after a run).
    With lipos, make sure you balance them when charging. Use the balancing plug that's included.
    Charge nimh's at 3 or 4 amps. Lipos 5 -10 amps.

    Sorry this is a tech support type question for a non Traxxas product so it oes against the forum rules. You really need to contact the manufacturer or vendor you bought the charger from for help with it's use and operation.
