You don't go by what the charger can do - you go bay what the lipo manufacturer recommends you do.

Look at the label on your lipo, if it says 2C charge is OK, then you can charge at 2C. If it says 1C, stick with 1C.

I think SMC says you can charge there batts at 2c but it will hinder there life span some. I would not charge over 1c no matter what.. I have bought more batts so I can run when needed, 6 batts for 2 vehicles.
