Help!
Lipo basics - Charging

Hi guys
I need help with learning about charging lipo battery's.
I have a Turnigy 3300mah 4s 20-50c lipo and a Turnigy accucell 6 charger.
For the period of time I have been charging I have been powering the charger off car battery's. The battery has been charging at 4A (I'm not sure if that is amps or not) and most of the time I will balance charge the lipo.

I just wanted to learn how to tell when the lipo is full. If the charger will automatically stop charging when the battery is full. And if anyone knows about this charger can give step by step instructions to use that would be much appreciated.

thanks

Go to Google and type in Acucell 6 manual YouTube
Start here.

Charger automatically terminates the charge when the charge current drops to a very low value.

I'd recommend you read at least one of these lipo guides.

4A = 4 Amps
The charger stops when the lipo is full.
Step by step instructions are in the manual http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...ual%282%29.pdf
