Yes, you're right. Typical Lipo has a max charge rate of 3C. So, the safest practice is not to exceed 450mA when charging. But some Lipos are capable of handling higher charge rates. Frankly, I'm not sure what charge rate is the S107 capable of. But I've been using the 800mA charger since October, and my flight time is still 5+ minutes. I usually land before 5 minutes are up, but on occasions when I want to see what my battery is still capable of, I get 7 minutes out of it.
