Lipo battery max charge rate?

Hi,
Anybody knows if the skyartec 3S 1100mAh battery can handle a charge rate of 2C?
I bought some Zippy Flightmax batteries ans the do support 2C as the max charge rate, but couldn't find any info around Skyartec batteries...

Good question. We have a request out to the factory with your question. We normally suggest the 1C rate, but we will confirm and then we will post the factory answer ASAP
UPDATE: While the factory recommends a 1C charge rate for safety, they have told us that this battery can handle a 2C charge rate; regardless of charge rate remember to always monitor the battery while charging; never leave it unattended for even a few moments; look for signs of puffing during charging or discharging during use. If the battery shows any signs of damage after a crash of the model or if the battery is puffing discontinue use and replace with a new LiPO battery
