.3 or .4 will work - just keep an eye on the temp of the pack

The higher the number, the more "punch" your pack will have, but it will also increase the temp. of the pack.

Sorry, I meant 3mvc to 4mvc - or 18 - 24 mvp (mv per pack / 6 cell pack)

How many amps are you using to charge the pack at?

How hot is hot? I set my temp. cut off (Cell Mater) between 48-51 degrees Celcius.
