I am not too concerned about times as if it takes longer it just gives me more of an excuse to take apart my cars
Thank you in advance for your help
Generally you charge at 1x (aka 1C) the capacity of the battery and your charge time should be around 1hr.
ie your 2200mAh lipo should be charged at 2.2A (1000mA = 1A) and 7.4V (2S). Since your charger is only capable of charging up to 5A, your 6000mAh battery may take a bit longer than the standard 1hr rate - but it'll charge none the less.
Hope that helps.
