Based on your picture that would be a 1s3p pack. What voltage are the cells though?

If each cell is 3500mah then for 1C charge rate you would set charger for 1s (voltage?) and 10.5A charge rate.

If pack as a while is 3500mah then for 1C charge rate you would set charger for 1s (voltage?) and 3.5A charge rate.

Since it is a 1s pack all you need to connect is the positive and negative. There is no balance leads.

But without knowing voltage though you can't set the charger quite right.

Connect all positive and negative together in PARALLEL exactly like you show in your picture. Then connect to positive (top of picture) and negative (bottom of picture) to charger positive and negative connections. No balance wires.

Set charger to Lipo 1s 3.7v and rate is going to be 700mah x number of batteries. So if two batteries then 1400mah. If three batteries then 2100mah.

I'm sure he meant 700ma (0.7A) instead of 700mah as the charge rate.

If you are connecting them in parallel then it would be 0.7A x 2 = 1.4A.

Some information worth reading. this article and this safety guide.

It looks like that came from your specs:

Quote:
Rated Capacity
3500mAh
...
Standard Charging Circuit
0.2C A
So: 3500mah * 0.2C = 700ma.
