Default Zippy 5s 5000 charging question?

For the zippy 5s 5000 batts is 5amps the max I can charge it at? I am jumping from 2s 8000 and was told then that it is 1amp per 1000mah but am not sure if this holds true regardless of how many cells?

5 amps is the maximum you would charge that pack at.

+1 . Don't forget to up your cutoff voltage too for the zippys to keep them running well. 3.3V per cell seems like a good starting place.

I have always run at the 3.2v per cell mark on my 2s setups. For 5s I am setting teh cuttoff for an even 16v? Sound about right?
