Depending on the class (Stock charge at higher amperage, Mod charge at lower amperage) charge from 5 to 6.5 amps with a .03 to .05 peak detect. Peak detect should be determined by how hot the cells are when they peak, you want 125-135F. If they're too hot, drop the peak detect down. Ambient temperate plays a factor here. Hope this helps.

John

Matt - Where do you get such batteries that you can charge at 6 amps all the time and they still perform flawlessly time and time again???? They must be spectacular!!! Please share your secret!?

Seeing Matt's bats (hey that rhymes) ....was one of the major reasons to try them, I now own 6 of them (out of my 8 packs i.e. only 2 non fu bats).
