I picked up a new Astro charger 1.7 and want to charge 2 brand new Airthunder 5000mah 6cell 22.2v lipo packs. My question is, how many volts should I turn the knob up to when I start charging?

The knob controls CURRENT not voltage. You would turn it up to 5 amps for the 5000ma pack. Just make sure the cell count stays correct through the 3 minutes of phase one. AstroFlight just came out with a new firmware chip, 2.0, not sure what all the features of it are but I believe it won't allow the cell count to change now during phase one also as one feature.
