Ok, I spoke too soon. Rayne's like explains the C rating on the pack is the discharge rate.

Still, I have problems with the idea that it's OK to charge my 7 year old 4S pack at 5C. Seems like back in those days 2C was the max charge rate. I'm afraid of having a bonfire called my house.

So back to my question: how do you know for a particular lipo what the maximum charge rate is? a 7 year old 13C discharge rate vs a new 50C discharge rate would I think have different coefficient of C for determining safe charge rates...????
