You are charging less than 1C. Try 10 amps and you are still less than 2c. Should be safe and you will get a quicker charge.

6.5 Amps is 6500mAh or 1C charge rate
13.0 Amps would be a 2C charge rate (roughly 30 minute charge time)
19.5 Amps would be 3C for that battery

I'm assuming you can figure out 4,5C :P. Just check the battery to make sure it's safe to go above 1C charge rate, most new batteries are, but doesn't hurt to check.

Actually he has a 5600mah battery so 5.6 amps would be 1c, 11.2 is 2c and so on

What battery is this? What does the label say you can charge it at? Have a look on the label, some say 1C max charge others go to 6C max charge rate.
