Default How do you fast charge?

Can someone please explain the fast charge fxn on my charger? What I don't understand is do I charge it on fast charge the same way I do the regular lipo charge? i.e. 5000mah batt @ 5.0 amps or do I have to make some type of adjustment.

Also can someone please explain what they my by "C" charging capacity. I .e. how this new TP battery I have says It can be charged up to 12 C?

Thanks as always guys.

Default

it means your battery can be charged 12 times faster than normal (1C)
a 12C charge rated lipo, for a 5000mah that means it can be charged at 60amps
12*5000=60amp
