Charge Rate for Hyp 320 battery

I have a Hyperion 2S 320 mah battery that I want to charge with my Bantam BC6DXII charger. When setting up the program, I have to choose between capacities of 300ma and 400ma--nothing in between.

Which setting would be best? If I choose the 300ma capacity would the battery get "filled" ? If I choose 400 would I damage the battery?

Either is fine. That battery has a max 5C charge rate (double check that on the label), so anything under 1.6A will not damage it. Personally I would probably charge it at 700ma, but if you want to do closer to 1C go with 400ma.
