i charge mine on a recordbreaker charger which is a 3 phase charger. but on a linear charger i charge at 6amps for stock and 19T (LRP Pulsar charger). i currently do not run mod, so one of the other guys will be able to help you there.

Mod. Off-Road were charging at 5 amps . You can charge at 5.5 or 6 . But 5 amp is usually plenty and makes runtime 6 even 7 minutes which at the 5 minute mark your battery hasn't faded at all.

Here is Pro-matches 3300 instructions. There are some tips in it for Maximum Voltage or to maintain Runtime.

Hope this helps.

Some bad news to report.....
A Brand new ProMatch 1.185 died yesterday shortly after 1Pm Pacific time.......Although it was a good pack it did parish do to some unfortunate mishandling on behalf of the owner and the weather...

It was a very warm day when the brand new ProMatch Battery came off the discharge tray and made its way to the charger...The owner placed it at on the table and placed the tempature probe beneith it. He then Hooked up the Possative wire to the Possative post as well as the Negative....He then set the charger to 6amps and 118 temp then proceeded to let it charge itself contently as it was closing in on its peak the owner left to go race but only after asking a race buddy to watch the pack for him since the tempature was 82 and sun was shining right down on the shiny new pack, friend looked away only for a minute and the worst thing you could amagine happened....four of the six cells ruptured there shiny new skin and cloud of grey smoke appeared as the owner was coming off the drivers stand as he was grabing his hair, screaming asking GOD why, why could this happen????It was such a nice pack. The charger was set at 118degrees but was not set to self shut-off at the temp it was set for Peak Detect.
The Owner is now in morning and wishes thing were different but he is currently out of CASH do to his new Yokomo BD (which is super sweet) and will have to save up to get a new pack, however it will not replace dead pack but will only fill its slot in the battery tray....
