And, if you are new, read how I burnt up my hand and almost burnt down my house with a 550mah lipo battery.
The charging method/math I use is from here:

Very simple. Here I have 3 550mah batteries charging in parallel (note the amp setting).

3X550=1650. Move decimal over 3. = 1.6A

3X750= 2250. Move decimal over 3. = 2.2A

This is for 1C charge rate for parallel charging. Although I admit, I crank it up just a tad at times. For instance, instead of 2.2A on my Rhino's, I may crank it to 2.8A
