Default Charging VXR 750mah Lipo at 1amp?

I have a VXR 750mah Lipo that I use for my transmitter. I need to know what will happen if I charge it with a GWS 1amp wallwart lipo charger?

With this charger I will end up charging the pack after probably every 15-20 minutes of use, which i estimate is about 1/3 discharged.

thanks

I use the FMA Cellpro 4s charger. It will charge at 1.4c without any problems.
