Absolutely not. As a matter of fact, charging a 900mAh lipo at 1 amp isn't recommended at either. You should only charge a lipo at or below the mAh rating. If you have a 650mAh or 700mAh rate on your charger, you should use that. Charge at 1 amp and your battery will not last very long. Charge at 2 amps, and you will definately have a fire.

As for the 1320mAh, you can use it, but it will eventually kill the stock 10T motor. If your running 3 cell lipos, you should really get a 9T motor.

The 1320 3s lipo works fine on the BCP as long as you use either 8T or 9T motor pinion and heat sinks. I've been using one on my BCP for months without any problems. If you use any 3s lipo with stock 10T pinion, it draws more current than the 4-in-1 is designed to handle, and you risk burning up your 4-in-1. I consider brushed motors to be consumeable items, so I'm not as worried about them. Even so, flying daily, my main motors still last at least a month.

Even though my charger has a 1000 mah setting, I still charge my 900 lipo on the 500 setting. I'd rather have a slower charge rate and no fires. Besides, if you have multiple lipo's and chargers, you can still fly and charge anyway. If you're serious about flying, you need more than one battery and charger.

I have one of the TP 900 Pro lite batteries and i charge it with the tp charger and balancer. My rate is .8 A. You go to 2 A and you are really likely to cause a fire. Even at 1 A there is a risk involved. Be careful
