    Max Charge Rate on Traxxas Lipo

    Received my 1400mah 3S Traxxas packs last night and checked the specs on the box.

    Charge Rate 1C
    Max Charge Rate 2C

    Have anybody charged their Traxxas packs at a 2C rate and no problems with the batteries?

    Ill probably stick to 1C or push 1.5C if in a hurry tho...

    I have charged my 3s 4k Traxxas lipo at 2c (8 amps) a few times. It didn't hurt it but everywhere I read it is best to charge lipos not above 1c for maximum life.

    Also the faster you charge your batteries they longer it takes at the end for the final balance.
    Pay It Forward.
