2100 charge rate
Hi, I just purchased the Dynamite Vision Peak Ultra and a Thunder Power 2100mah pack with these specs:
2100 mAh, 2 cells (7.4V)
Rating: 10-12C (21-25A) continuous, 16C (33A) burst
Output: 7.4V Nominal, 2100mAh
Dimension: 34mm x 98mm x 13mm (98gr)
The Vision charger has adjustable charge rates for lipo from .1a to 2.5a.
My question is this- 1c charge rate for this pack would be 2.1a but I have heard its best to charge at a lower rate the first few charges. So would say 1.5a be an acceptable rate for say the first 6 charges. Then I could move to 2.0a for regular charges. Oh and at 1.5a I would expect it to take 100 minutes to charge?

As per the TP Safety Sheet take it a little easy for the first several flights.Make sure LVC is set to 3 volts per cell and try to land befor LVC for the first several flight especially. Let battery rest(cool) to ambient temperature befor re charging.
