Charging rates for CP1700s???

Hey guys,

I have 2 10 cell zapped CP1700 packs. What is the optimum charge rate for these packs. I am using a Diamond Super Turbo charger set at 4.5 amps in. Is this pushing it, or can I bump up the amp rate any more? Also, I am getting in the 1530-1550ma range at the end of the cycle. Is this normal, or should they be closer to 1700ma?

Thanks,

Tim H.

Tim: they take 5a without a problem. i just use auto mode, "set it and forget it" oops that's from an infomercial
1550 is not out of line, depends on the discharge. at 50a i get about that, at 38-42 close to 1700...........gregg
