so in another thread I posted about lipos and it turned out i was using all the wrong stuff for charging them and they were puffed etc, etc, etc.....
So I ended up now with an onyc 235 and a 1600mah 2S pack that i am charging now. Is there a fast charge option for charging or do I just stick with the settings it puts in automatically? I read that it has adjustable 1-8A setting, but not sure if thats something I should ever do or not.....
Charge it at 1.6 amps and you might be able to charge it at 3.2
charging at higher rates can shorten the life, but most puff before that. With a balancer you should be safe charging at 2C as long as the charger works well. 1C was stated before lipos were charged with balancers. I've done it many times with many packs.
2c is, as far as i know, the safest/fastest charge rate 1 know of... and for a 1600mah 2s, it should take about 20-30 minutes to get to full balance charge. By the way, i'm using the same charger as you are, and i am very pleased with it!

What you are asking here is considered Support for aftermarket items. Not only does Traxxas believe that it is the responsibility of the manufacturers of these items to provide that Support, but that the best information regarding these products comes from their manufacturers.
