Default Team Orion Advantage Charger charging?

On a Team Orion Advantage charger, what milivolt do you set for charging IB3800's and IB4200's? I know these batteries are sensitive. I've been charging them at 5mV at 6Amps and it doesn't seem right. My MMR charger seems to charge them better. Any thoughts?

3 mv at 5 volts or even 4.5 volts.I tried a lower charge rate on my 4200's and they held a peak longer into the run about 3.5 minutes. When i ran 3300 I charged 3.5 volts 4mv and zoom. Its worth a try. The best thing is they last longer and charge cooler. The slower charge is harder to time i had to stay a round ahead.
I did eventually start charging at 6 volts 3mv. The peak drops faster, About 2.5 to 3 mins with an Ice charger. Some of the drop could have been gearing I tend to over gear a little.The 3300s were back when I used a quasar.

Set your Advantage Charger to 3mv/cell at 6 amps.
