  • charging 1400mah battery

    was wondering what a good safe charge rate would be for an 8 cell 1400 mah pack. do i have to charge it at 1.4 or less? or can i charge at a higher rate?

    As a rule of thumb move the decimal point to the left 3 places...

    1.4 is the most you want to do...I always back it down a couple 10ths...I charge mine at 1.2

        I always charged my 7 cell 1500mah at 2 amps with no problems, no problem with over heating or anything. Only batteries I charge that low is Lipo's or the AA's for my TX.

            If you have a good charger it will tell ya before the charge that a cells bad, but I have had no problems charging at that rate with that size battery.
