I've been having similar instances with my Cellpro 4S when I set it to 1C. Sometimes it'll start charging and go up at more than 2C and eventually come down, and sometimes it'll stay at about .8C or so on some other packs. No biggie, it's not like I'm in a huge hurry and need the packs right away...

I used to set the charge rate manually, back when most of my cells were in the 900 mAh to 1300 mAh range. I'd just set it at 1A and be done with it. Then I got some 200mAh packs (if you can call them that ) and I figured that I wouldn't want to take my chances and accidentally charge them at 5C! So now I let the 1C thingy do the work... even if it oscillates back and forth. I trust the Cellpro enough, though I do wait a few minutes after I plug it in, just to make sure everything's OK.
