Default Charge settings for Different Type of LiPo?

I'm currently using a few LiPo packs for an Airsoft gun. Specs are as follows for the entire pack:

3 cells
11.1v
1300mAh.
15c/burst 25c

I'm currently using a LRP Pulsar Comp 3. I'm familiar with NiMH settings, and I know the charge settings for NiMH packs.

I need the best settings for the best possible performance per charge.

Any rough estimates would be great.

Thanks

Charger should have a dedicated lipo charge mode that automatically selects some of the settings

You should just have to use the following

Cell count - In your case 3 (3s, 11.1v)
Charge rate - In your case 1.3 amps (1c charge rate equal to battery size)

Cheers

Unless your lipo packs say 2C charging, the best rate is 1.3amps in lipo charge mode, with it set for a 3S lipo. The charger shoud not let you charge it if it senses the voltage is off from what you've told it. A 3S should be above 9v for the charger to recharge it.
