    Lipo Batteries and charger questions

    I got my SPC 8200 2s lipos in and a new Hitec X4 charger. What is the charge rate for these batteries, according to the math it would be 8.2 amps, but the charger only goes to 6.0. Is this a safe setting? And what is a safe discharge/storage rate?

    Has anyone out there run this charger and could you give me some guidance on set up?

    These questions need to be directed to the manufacturer or vendor you bought the products from. SPC packs come with pretty good instructions and they offer great support. Charging the packs at 6 amps is safe but will take longer than a typical 1c rate would.
