    Storage Mode?

    So i am using a traxxas ez peak plus charger and i want to use storage mode to store it. This charger only allows you to charge discharge at a maximum of 2.0 amps in storage mode. I am using a 7.4v 5000Mah lipo battery. What should i set the amps at for this mode? Is 2 amps to much?

    If i were to take a guess i think i would set it at 2 amps.

    i can charge/discharge at .1 amps is minimum it will allow? Do you mean highest? .1-2.0 amps is the range it allows on storage mode.

    I'd say just go with one amp to be safe....1 amps would take a long time

    I guess im just a litle confused about why such a low amperage? If i run my battery to 3.6v per cell can i use storage mode a 2 amps and be ok? Then if i run my battery say only to 4.1v per cell and need to discharge then ill use 1 amp for storage mode since im discharging

    I'd set it for 2A on any voltage, Your only limited by the charger's power.
    Guide books aren't part of the packaging.
