That's nice that ThunderPower states that you can charge at 6c, but any issue with your pack will become quickly evident at a 30A charging rate (like thermal runaway). How much lifespan does charging at 6c take away? A year or two ago, manufacturers claimed that you could charge at 2c, but recommended 1c since 2c reduced the pack's lifespan.

If you race at any ROAR races, this is all irrelevant, since ROAR rules specify a max charge rate of 1c, or they will remove you from the event.
