Default How to charge IB 1400's

OK, it looks like I destroyed the AE 1100 batt , so I got a couple of IB 1400's . Before I destroy these, what settings are recommended with the ICE charger? I'd like 3 or 4 cycles before racing them this weekend.

Thanks

charge at 2 amps to be on the safe side, you can do more (say 2.5) for more rip. 5mv/c peak detect, 10 amp disharge to .9v/c

for the first few cycles with my ib1400s i charged them at 1.5a, 3mv/c then after about 4-5 cycles increased to 1.8a, 3mv/c and stuck with that. Wouldnt really advise discharging at 10a especially with stock connectors as they can melt I upgraded to deans straight away.

Is there any other connector besides the Deans???.......hehehe
the stock HPI connector is rated for 5 amps....
Not too many racers use stock connectors anymore......
I would charge my cells at 1.4 amps(1c) try to have the packs at about 80 degrees f.....use no fan.....let them peak they most likely will at about 120 f.
When new discharge them at a lower amperage....at about 3 amps.....do this maybe 3 times
then charge at 2.8amps (2c) and discharge (6-10amps).
Since you have the ice monitor the temp.....dont let them go over 130 f.
your packs will have wicked punch.....
