Is it OK to charge an 1800 MaH Lipo at 2 Amps??

Is it OK to charge a Polyquest 1800-2S Lipo pack at 2 Amps (2000 MaH)??
My charger has a setting for 1.5 Amp & 2.0 Amp, since the pack is rated at 1800 Mah, I am thinking I can get away with charging at 2 Amp, am I correct or am I going to let the smoke out??

-Thanks-

Mike

Mike-

I think you are better off using the 1.5A charge rate as overcharging can dimish a packs ability to deliver. Besides most advocate at charging at .8C to elongate your packs life which turns out to be roughly 1.5A charge rate(1.4 actually).
