Why 600 s only?
How many cells in series ?
What Dsc. rating?
What max C charge rating?
What brand?

It really should depend charge rating of the specific batteries. I have 2S 1000 and 1200 that I charge at 1C because they do not mention charge rate. And I have sometimes charged 2S 450-480 batteries rated for 5C at slightly over 3C (1.5-1.6A). But I have not charged them often enough to make an evaluation.
