    2200 mAh = 2.2 amp hour = charged at 1C = 2.2 amps for about 1 hour.
    If the pack says "Can be charged at 5C" you "could" do it at 11 amps = 12 minutes to charge.

    Charging at higher than 1C is harder on the packs .... but sometimes necessary to get back in the game.

    Most chargers won't go this high. The golden rule is to charge at the 1C rate .... but high end batteries can take a lot more than 1C charge rates.
