If it doesn't have a C charge rating, charge it at one C or you'll find out if the batt. pack will puff.

I have been charging 1c rated batts at 2 and 3C for about 3 years.my batts last hundreds of cycles.But you must have the proper charging equipment and monitor the first few charges carefully

For Lipos
Just to be sure, not any charging station.

I think about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, then wonder what I'm here after ?

yes lipo specific, also with a balancer that communicates with the charger WHILE charging,that is MANDATORY for 2C + charging.a seperate balancer is not good enough.the balancer/charger must be working together
