Default Charging amps?

How many amps should I set my Ice charger on for charging and discharging? I understand the faster I charge the more power, but less life. Can someone please help me. I am using Orion 3300 packs and one intellect 3800 pack.

6 to 6.5 amp charge, 20 to 30 amp discharge.

I would say 6 amps also. It seems to be the standard.

Yep 6 amp charge but the Ice only goes up to 10 amp discharge. You would be better off getting a seperate discharger.
