It had better have a partial charge (probably around 7.0 volts). A LiPo is fully charged at 8.40 volts. You shouldn't discharge a LiPo much below 6.4 volts (3.2V per cell) or you can do irreversible damage to the pack. Plug it in and charge it a 5A. The current will ramp up until the pack hits 8.40V, then the current will drop slowly until around 0.10A. Some people say it's charged as soon as it hits 8.40V, but there could still be a few hundred mAh still left to go. The last 10-15% of the capacity takes the longest, since the current is lowest at that point in the charge cycle.
