Open up the charger and turn the pot for each port down two notches

I havent opened up the single chargers used by blade but i bet they have an adjustment pot as well.
Did you just preemptively quote someone?

I'm using the same charger, I remember an article on how to turn down the rate. I should do that. What was the stock charge rate, do you remember?

Actually the new packs are rated at 3C.....

what they are rated and what you should use/charge them at are not always the same Let us know how long they last at 3c though...I will do my own testing too since I will have lots of batteries.

If anyone is interested I have two mcpx style charges $15each shipped

Yes I know what it says on the label. I am basing my response on experience with all of the 1s CP helis I have owned (4G3, 4G6, V120, M120, Genius CP, Mini CP, MCPx and now the Nano). I also have a friend who has lipos manufactured for his shop and the factory said the same thing. You CAN charge any of these lipos at 2-5c. However, it does affect the life cycle and discharge ability over time. As in the MCPx stock packs that were supposed to be able to handle .7a (or 3.5c). Charging them at that rate caused a lot of cell failures (even with the HH reps). Strictly my own experience. I just want my packs to have max power for as long as possible.

I've used the stock charger for them with tons of charges...that is good enough for me.

Well I use Hyperion mainly so I don't worry about it that much anyway.

I know that 150mAh batteries come with it. What is the largest I can buy that will fit it...160mAh? Is there a 200mAh for this bird?

I have used the stock charger and it had killed some batteries faster than when charged at 1c. I have been using the celectra for portable charging since it was first released. It is a given that even high C charge rate batteries will deteriorate faster when charged faster, but will last longer than lower c rate batteries

Since TP isnt stock batteries so I would expect different results than stock. I havent used the new blade batteries so i cant say what the real capabilities are...yet

I have used quite a few of the new EFlite batteries, and they seem to be every bit as good as TP.
