Default LiFe Battery Charging

Hi Guys, haven't been on in a while, just a few questions today.
1. Does anyone have any experience with Turnigy 3s2p LiFe batteries, and do they work will?
2. Will said batteries fit in the e-maxx and get good run time?
3. I have heard that Life batteries charge very fast and I am thinking of getting the TURNIGY MEGA 400W Charger, how long will it take to charge 3s2p 4500mah turnigy batteries at 5c?
Thanks in advance!
Merry Christmas!

3s life will put you in between 2s and 3s lipo for voltage / speed

5c charge should take you 15 minutes or so

Cheers

That charger didn't get very good reviews on RC Groups. Also has bad reviews on the HK site if you read the feedback -

Sorry for hijacking this thread mate.

This is the first time I'm using LiFe battery. How do you guys charge a LiFe battery? seems that when i plugged them on the charger, it would not accept 2s and I'll get that Low Voltage Error message. My LiFe battery is marked as 2s (6.6v). But when i switch my charger to 3s (9.9v) it works!
