Hi, I have 4S 2600 V2 pro-lites for my Rave.
I'm not the charging pro.- what is the most I can charge this batteries if I want to charge faster. Currently I am using the Tp 1010 charger and 210 balancer, and I typically charge at 1C,
Any help would be appreciated,
Jeff

It should say the most you can on the lipor online in the manual for the lipo... Most now days are 2c with the makers saying it doest hurt it and some allow 5c fast charge... Just look what they recommend

I been charging at 2 and 3C for about 2 years with no issues whatsoever.

for your set up and lipo you will be able to charge at 2C with no problems so set your charger at 5.2Amps and enjoy 1/2 hour charge times

Any stickers on the battery regarding maximum charge. I have also been charging my batteries at 2c and the sticker on my batteries say 2c. It does depend on the battery.

I've been charging at 2C for many years and older generation batteries. Since your set-up is a good one I would say 2C is good. If you were using a "blinky" as your balancer, then 1C would be max I would think.

almost all batteries that say 1C can be charged at 2C IF...IF you are using the proper set up.the reason they say 1C on the battery is because they cannot control what the user is charging with,i.e some POS charger that came with a RTF package,or some cheap junk charger of questionable balancing abilty.But if you have a set up where the charger and balancer communicate, 2c charging is safe.FMA recommends that any battery over 12C can be safely fast charged at 2C or more on their chargers
