Lipo charge voltage should NOT exceed 4.2V/cell. The Triton will start the charge at the selected current and charge at that rate until the pack voltage reaches 4.2V/cell at which time the voltage will remain at 4.2V/cell but the current will start to drop. If the V exceeds 4.2V/cell, the pack will be damaged and perhaps burn. That has happened to modellers setting their chargers for 3 cells when charging a 2 cell pack. The charger should automatically maintain 4.2V after the constant V cycle has started if the initial settings were correct.
3.7V for 1 cell pack
7.4V for 2 cell pack
11.1V for 3 cell pack
