    so your lipo can charge at 5.5 amps. 3c means how many continous amps you can run at a time so take 5.5x3 and thats how many amps you can charge your battery tops.. 1c means you can only charge at 5.5 amps 2c = etc etc

    you can charge your lipo at 16.5amps which is very high. your lipo will be charged in like 15-20mins which is very fast but if thats what the lipo says then its ok.

    On another note can give support on a non traxxas lipo other than C charge rate info i think or i could be wrong and you cant help with even that info

    One thing that has not been mentioned yet...

    If you are charging at high(bigger than 1 c) rates. You absolutely positively must be in the room every second.
    Sit down, buckle up, hold on, pay me...

    Do faster charging rates "hurt" the battery? In other words, is it harder on, or does it affect overall lifespan of a battery by charging it faster?

    If so, then one should use the 1c rate unless a faster charge is absolutely necessary... right?
