I personally would not feel comfortable charging anything at 3C. You just don't save enough time to justify destroying the pack.

It's a complex, costly, glow powered anti-gravity machine!

I know after charging at 2C these past few years I wouldn't be able to stand going back to 1C - I'd have to double my battery and charger arsenal to fly like I'm used to - It's definitely way cheaper for me to charge at 2C and I've never had a charging incident with lithiums - Just use good equipment and pay attention to what you're doing there's no problem - As the FlightPower tech said high charge rate degradation is negligible and mostly myth - Not even worth worrying about yet blown completely out of proportion by some

+1, nothing like charging two packs at a time at 2C.

Can you charge @ 2C from cycle#1 or is it better to charge at 1C for first 5 breakin cycles? Please advise. I just received my Hyperion g3 VX pack and wanna know if i can do 2C starting from first cycle.

Thanks in advance

Good question - I've always been as nice to my packs as I can the first few cycles - I figure since my first few flights are short and tame anyways that charging at 1C isn't such an annoyance - After break-in it's all 2C for me though - (I don't have any Hyperions)
