6A will work for 4200's. If you want a little more punch, you can use 6.5A or 7A, but you will loose some runtime.

As for discharge, .9 is the correct cut off for 4200's.

Default Instructions

If you're running SMC batteries, they come with an instruction sheet in the box. These instructions may not be the absolute last word in how to charge the batteries, but I'd bet they aren't very far off. Chances are, SMC knows a bit about how to care for their batteries. Thanks; Ernie P.

Default Don't ask me!

Check out the SMC question and answer site, right here. That way, you get it straight from Danny. Always go to the source, if possible. Thanks; Ernie P.
