Yes you do not hurt capacityonly slightly shorten lifespan.

If your in a rush go 2C if not go 1C.

I charge my batteries usually day sin advance so it is no rush.

Mr Black, I want to thank you for giving your knowledge and advice on here. I have been considering getting in to li-pos for some time now, and with what I have learned on this thread, I feel confident that I will be happy with them. I ordered your Advantage charger today from my lhs. and will get a 3200 shortly. Thanks again,
Bob

Found another great deal on the Orion 3200 Carbon for $72.49 at Nexus Racing! With a price like that, everyone should be racing LiPo's!

If you have a charger that can be set to a single cell, charge just the low cell separately to bring it up.

Took his advise as well and after a couple of month`s now racing with my Orion Carbon`s I`ll never even think of using a Nk-ML pack again !

Yes !
I`m that satisfied with these new Orion packs ....

I don`t need a balancer either , what bunch of bull !!!

How do you check each cell? I assume you use the balance port on top, but what with that? I don't want to go poking around and short the thing out. Help please..

Does anyone have a chart or graph showing a 3200 vs nimh 4200 discharge curve @20-30a?

I have the orion carbon advantage that supports lipo, how long would a full charge take on it?

Starting at 6.0V it would probably take around 80 min. at 3.2A (1C) and about 50 min. at 6A (2C)

After you run for 5 min. you can simply top it off depending on your chassis and setup it can take as little 15 min. to top it off after an average run.
