    I have that battery and use an adjustable charger for it. but i have used a charger set for 1.5amps but its hard on the battery though i would stay at 1amp only for it.

    this is what i have... it has a 1 amp and 2 amp setting! so if it was on one amp it would be fine to charge and wouldnt hurt the battery?

    nope it would not at all. Its better to charge it at 1amp to keep it from heating up so much when charging. it should only be warm when its done.
