What charger do you have? What size packs do you have (mAh)? You can only be using 1/30 Ah (33 mAh) if they are charging in 2 mins @ 1 A.

You cannot be charging those packs in 2 minutes. PERIOD.

2 minutes and 20 minutes is quite a difference.

I have 10S 5,000 mah batteries that charge in 9 minutes, but certainly not at 1 amp.

Those batteries should be able to handle 22.5 amps each and charge very quickly, if they can truly handle their 10c charge rating.

12v charge on my old junk charger 6s 45 min

The charge voltage is set by the charger based on the number of cells connected.

Now, if you are feeding the charger 22 V, it is able to put out about twice the current that it could at 12 V, as it is able to get twice the power for the same input current. So you may be charging at double the amps.

Your amps reading doesn't make sense to me.

How many mAh does it say it is putting back in the packs?

20 mins at 1 A is still only 333 mAh maximum; actually less because of the current drop off after CV stage is reached.

In your video I see a charge current setting of 8.0 A. Are you sure you aren't actually charging at 8.0 A?

Are you sure the timeout setting didn't get set to 20 mins some how?

Thanks,
John

So you may be charging at double the amps.

I thought you said 1 A???

If you are putting back in 2,000 mAh in 20 mins then you are NOT charging at 1 A or 2 A but AT LEAST 6 A. Probably the 8 A we can see in the video since the charger does not maintain the full charge current througout the charge cycle.

The clown needs to become edumacated in electric model terminology.

1c is not the same as 1A.

2 min is not the same as 20 min.

Clown, please be careful during this learning curve, as you can easily burn down your house and risk lives needlessly. Don't charge in the house. Never leave batteries unattended, not even for a minute. Have smoke alarms near and updated, and at least one good fire extinguisher in close proximity.

Enjoy things that money can buy IF you don't lose the things money can't buy.

so i have been charging at 2200mah @ 2.0amps =1c

thunder power said if i drain my lipos down to 3.8v 25 min charging time is normal @1c 2amps.

so my charging time would not differ if i ran my psu at 12v instead of 22v ?

Watch at YouTube

sorry i got confused

The input voltage to the charger dose not effect out put voltage of the charger. The charger controls the out put voltage to the battery.

People use higher voltages from power supplies to make up amps that a 15 amp outlet can not put out. Example: if you need 20 amps and only have 13 or 14 max. Most chargers today can turn higher voltage like 24 volts and make the difference up.

I am sure most people on RR can probably explain this better than me.
