    I just bought 2 of the new Gens Ace 4S 7200mah packs. What do you recommend I set the Charger Amp rate to? I have the venom Pro Duo 80W X 2 but it does not go above 7.0A so if i understand correctly it will charge the batteries just below 1C Correct?
    Is it a decent charger or should I get something that can charge higher than 1C.
    I plan on getting some 4S 9200mah packs which will probably take forever to charge no?
    Thanks for your time

    You want a charger that will charge at 1C at the very least. I would charge them at 2C. A lot of the manufacturers that make the 2C capable batteries come with a disclaimer that charging the 2C lipos at less than 1C is bad for them. I use a Dynamite Passport Ultra Force touch which can charge a 4S battery at 15amps if needed.
