thanks evryone for ur help
Set the battery type to Lipo and charge it at 7.4 volts and 5.0 amps (or 5000 milliamps). You do not have to set a charging time.
After it has charged for awhile, the amps charge value should begin to decrease until the battery is fully charged. It will probably take over an hour to complete the charge. When done charging, you should not re-peak it. Just use it as is.
READ THE MANUAL. If you don't have one, here is a link to it.
