I should be getting my Mini Titan from UPS within the next few days, and I ordered a ThunderPower 2070mAh 25C LiPo along with it. I have a Multiplex LN-5014 charger and a Flightpower V-Balance on the way also.

I don't know a whole lot about charging Lithium batteries, so do I need to break them in at all? Slow or fast charge? Cycle?

Also, I have a Fromeco Relion Li-Ion battery and Arizona reg on order for my 600N. What differences are there in charging Li-Ion vs Li-Poly?

Thanks in advance!

No real break in necessary for LiPos. Treat them gently for the first few cycles, so charge them at max 1C (so 2 amps for a 2Ah pack) and discharge them approx 50%.

Charge the Fromeco packs just like a LiPo, so max 8.4 volts and around 0.8 C. I charge my 2400/2600 packs at 2 amps, the 4800 packs are 3 amps. You'll find these LiIon packs reach peak voltage when charging quite quickly, so increasing the max charge current doesn't save that much time. It can take around 3 hours to fully charge one of these packs.
