thats right but charging at a higher amp is ok


just to make things less confusing just keep an eye out on the temp

noW i have 2 GFX and i charge one pack at 6 amps and the other a 7 amps

the one i had at 6 amps was at 0.3 peakdetect and the other at 0.1

they came off the chargers about the same in total volts

but the 0.3 pack was 138 in temp and the other was cooler

so ben charging the packs is not the prob... it getting them to
