    do you all balance charge to capacity? questions.......

    I have 2s, 5000mah lipos. I balance charge to capacity, 5000. Today I noticed the charger shut off at 5000, and the blinking message was "capa" indicating that it reached 5000. It did not say "full" and showed 8.39 volts on a target of 8.4.

    Do most of you charge to the 8.4 or to the mah? If mah, do you shoot for a number slightly higher than the stated capacity? If you do that, will it shut off at your mah setting or when it hits 8.4?

    I charge to the voltage... most good battery brands will actually take more mAh than they claim.
    I have my capacity cut offs completely turned off.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    Done. Switched to voltage charging after enjoying some bashing with the raptor this morning.
