Wow !!
No offense intended but you really need to get together with someone that is experienced with lipos that can give you some guidance....

AND, please take the time to review all of the safety aspects involved with lipos.....

Recently, someone with a fair amount of experience nearly burned his house down because he got "careless"....

Please search the safety section for lipo info...

Been there, done that and old enough to know better.....

yes there should be plenty of people in florida that could help you... get someone that is local that can show you how to charge and balance before you get into serious trouble... these things can go up extremely fast and you cant put the fire out so be careful

Generally they say to not charge above 1C -- meaning that you should charge it @ 2.6

EXAMPLE :

1000 mah --- 1.0
1500 mah --- 1.5
3000 mah --- 3.0
5000 mah --- 5.0

2C WOULD BE DOUBLING THIS:
1000 mah --- 2.0
1500 mah --- 3.0
3000 mah --- 6.0
5000 mah --- 10.0

and so on

NEVER DRAIN THE LIPO FULLY TILL IT WONT RUN ANYMORE, AND BALENCE THE PACKS WHEN CHARGING they above posters are correct -- please do some reading onhow to handle lipos so it wont cost you a ton or injure anyone

I reject your reality and substitute my own :0)
