Questions?? Charging Lipos at Super High Amps

Hello,

What is the benefit of charging a Lipo battery at higher amps?
Is there an advantage for charging at super high amps and is there a tradeoff with durability?
Are there safety concerns?
If you charge at very high amps, why do you do it?

Thx

About this subject there are many topics to find in radio and electronics forum
https://www.rctech.net/forum/radio-electronics-137/

Before asking these questions it is wise to use the search......

Basically it is to heat up the LiPo from inside, Warm LiPo's do work the best but heating is not alowed, heating by charging probably is....
It is a strange rule because chaging and discharging with high currents is not without a risk and also not good for the lifespan of the battery but it is all for a maximized performance.

In Europe the rules are much stronger about maximum charging and discharging currents and also about the temperature of the battery when hitting the track. Funny thing is that a world champion like Jilles Groskamp does not use a discharger and does charge his batteries at 2C maximum. So to win races on a high level you do not need high curents nd cooking batteries.

And you must understand not all batteries are created equal. Some can take it, some cannot.

Here is a vid from Ryan Harris for speed tips. He explains doing the discharge and High amp charge benefit.
