question about charging batteries
i have a thunder power TP-610c lipo charger. i wanted to charge my sukhoi batteries with it, but it can only charge as low as a quarter of an amp. that's 250mah, or 0.25mah.
i know lipos shouldn't be charge over 1c and charging them less than that is better for them.
but i've heard that the stock charker that came with the sukhoi charge at least 3c or more to the batteries, and it seems to work fine.
i know my best bet is to charge the batteries in parallel to safely charge with this charger, and the extra connectors is in the mail at the moment.
i just want to know if its ok to do it, since parkzone charger do it all this time anyway.

Contrary to popular belief modern lipos charge fine over 1c. In fact most RTF lipos are charged at 3-4c. The real issue is heat which is generally not a problem.

If the packs or vendor say it is OK to charge over 1C, then do it. Don't do it because some(whom think they know) say so. Be careful of others when they say things that don't make sense...
