Li-Po went slow on me during the race (went flat) 2.5 races i can do in 27t before starting to go slow
put it back on charge no probs 4.8a this was the very first charge it had from new

so `I DO` expect it to get better from then ,also the charge was in there for 1 week with no top up (fri-fri)
punch was very good coming out of corners but top speed was not night & day better then Sub-C cells powered car
but i had 1 li-po pack the others had 4 pks of 38`s & gp37`s
also 35 min`s between rds was planty of time for a top up charge , there was 1 other li-po user @ this club ,mine was still faster

I purchased a Orion Lipo 4800 and I have an ICE charger, so my question is what settings are you guys using?

Here is what I have in the setup on the ICE charger:

LiPo 7.4V 4800
Chg current: 4.8A
dChg current: 0.1A
dChg volt: 2.8V/C
cut-off temp 90F
max chg capa: 100%

Are these correct?

hi was wondering if the platinum will fit chasis that use tape to hold down the packs? where are the wires on the pack?

I have a Tamiya 415.

I just go my LiPo, and the paper with it says to not charge if over 4.0A... So is 4.0A the max or 4.8A? Looking for some direction for the people that have been playing with the LiPo and ICE charger...

I charge at 4.8 with no problems with a ICE, and have been charging both my lipos at that rate since i bought them, both have been charged about 10-15 times.

I don't discharge them, everything else is the same as you have, they never have gotten hot when they charge.

i use tape to hold down my platinum on my evo iv with no problems. 415 should be the same, only problem is with the 415msx because the motor mount doesn't have enough clearance for the lipo.

Yep I see it now.. on the sheet included with the pack says to charge at 4.8, and the label on the pack says to charge at 4.0.

I charge mine at 4.8 as well. They never get more than barely warm. I'm talking just barely noticable.

Ok, I charged my up, the funny thing (I'm using an ICE charger), it charged at 4.8, then beeped, and dropped down to 2.5, then dropped again down to 1.2, it was not increasing the on the Voltage in the pack 8.403. Is this correct or did I have something wrong... I stopped at this point... Pack was not even warm...
