I have a balance charger and not sure if I'm charging correctly. Do I have to set it to balence every time I charge or every now and then? Also for this battery what values should my charger be at I.e voltage, chargimg current etc!
If possible I would appreciate someone explaing this to me In super simple terms as the penny isn't dropping at the moment!!
Thanx for your time everyone...
The battery you mentioned above charge it with these settings this will also give you a longer cycle life .
0.5 c -1c meaning the 4000mah pack at either 2amps or 4 amps but no more that the max capacity of the battery which is 4000mah which =4amps the lower and slower the better .
Always balance the pack as well .
