I've got maybe a stupid question......

What setting on your charger are most guys putting in order to charge your 1s battery? I've heard conflicting reports.

NiMH 4 cell setting?
Suggestions?

Set the charger to cc/cv. Charge on 1 cell settings, 3.7 v. Cut-off at 3.0 volts, 1C charge rate. NEVER charge it on 4 cell NiMh settings.

Isn't it so that the lightning volts will be faster then the C-max ones?
and if they have more potential can someone tell me what they mean with it.

You need a charger that can charge in lipo mode for a 1 cell battery, I had my CE turbo 35 upgraded for the lipo and have been charging with that at 1c.

Thanks guys. I thought that was so. But wanted to make sure.

Also thanks Chris for the great cars(the one with the KO speedo was bad a$$). However I went ahead and purchased a BMI 12rr Lipo version. My nephew lost intrest in on road racing and him and his dad started racing offroad.

Looking forward to running this new BMI car.

I understand that the Cmax batteries have a 40c+ rating. That's higher then the regular SMC lipos. The higher C rating means that the battery will support a higher number of amps. Higher C batteries are commonly "punchier" then lower C batteries. By more potential, I mean higher current if the application demands it, and possibly more punch.
