Another more extreme example is I have a 2 amp charger on my r.v. 240 amp hour batteries. The 2 amp charger can top them off but it takes days after a trip.
So I just realized that my EZ Peak had the automatic cut off set to 5000mah. Which means that all this time I haven't been getting the most out of any of my packs, most of which are 5800 and above. So my new question is: Knowing that I can charge beyond the 6000mah, will the charger still automatically stop once the pack is fully charged or do I have to keep track of how man mahs have been pumped into the pack and then just stop in manually?
It sounds like a silly question as I typed it, but I seriously don't know the answer.
Your lipo charger, if it's working correctly and set up properly, will stop when it reaches peak voltage for the number of cells in your lipo. It doesn't hurt to keep a close eye on the process until you get a feel for the charger.
I did a balance charge and it hit 6501 and beeped several times flashing CAPA on the screen. Im assuming it is done.

Since you set the cutoff to 6500 and it stopped at 6501 I'd guess that your charger hit the cutoff before the battery was completely charged. It's probably pretty close though. Does the EZ Peak show you voltage in each cell? It should read 4.2 volts in each assuming you balance charged.
