My buddy has a MSR with a Eflite Celectra Li-Po Charger, it has 01amps-to 0.7amps
he has these batteries 3.7V 120mAh 14c and also a 3.7V 160MAh 25C

What should he set the charger at for both of the types of batteries to be charged.
Thanks for you help.

For a 1C charge you would set the charger to .12 amps for the 120MAh and .16 amps for the 160MAh batt. Or what ever is close on the charger. BUT !!! your batts can probably handle a higher rate of charge. A 2C charge on the 120 is .24 and the 160 is .32 and a 3C is........ well you can see the pattern. You need to post the charge rate of your batts to get a more accurate answer. The 14c and 25c you see on the batt is the discharge rate. Some better batts give you the charge rate that you can charge it at. Some batts are a 5C charge rate so a 160 MAh could be charged at .80 so that charger you have would be set to .7 amps. way under 5C and perfectly fine.
