I have 3 Turnigy Nano 3300 40C lipos. They charge just fine within one hour's time. I too have the iMax Quatro B6 charger. Just check your manual and make sure you have your settings correct.

As for which lipo is good or bad, Thunder Power aren't any better or worse than a Turnigy, Skylipo, or Blue Lipo. I've been flying electric for 7 1/2 years and sadly my 2 Thunder Power 2250 3S 30C lipos crapped out long before any of my Skylipo & Blue Lipo brands did (So I guess my experience with TP is they cost 3x as much & DIE 10x sooner?). In fact I'm still running my Sky & Blue lipos today. BUT, I also had 2 Thunder Power 2100 15C 3S Pro lite lipos that lasted forever. I had both of them two years before I got my 2250 30C lipos, and still had them 2 years after the 2250's died (the 2250's lasted almost two years). Basically the entire time I've been flying electric, and just gave them away about 3 months ago.

Bottom line, everybody has their story and their "Ten Commandments" for flying. Do what works best for you.
