I know its out of topic, but dont know where can i post this question, please advice
The '2s' part means the pack consists of 2 lipo cells in s
Lipo cells are individually rated at 3.7V, so it takes two to make the pack the full 7.4V.
Lipo's use individual cells just like packs of Ni-MH's, it's just thay they are thin (and look like foil pouches) and you can't see them as they are both inside the casing.
You should charge the pack with 2S settings as this is what is in the pack, it also means you will want to balance charge the pack every now and again to help keep the 'cells' equal in voltage.
Does that make sense?
