At what amperage do you charge a pack like this at?
A good way to work it out is take the mAh of the battery you have and divide it by 1000 (Basically move the decimal point to the left 3 times. Thats the Amps you should charge that battery at. This is considered it's 1C
charge rate. You should never charge higher then 1C at any time. Nomatter how fast you want the battery done....lol
800. mAh Battery 800/1000 = 0.8A charge rate.
1300. mAh Battery 1300/1000 = 1.3A Charge rate.
1600. mAh Battery 1600/1000 = 1.6A Charge rate.
2500.mAh Battery 2500./1000 = 2.5A Charge rate.
See what I mean?
Hope this helps.
