However the manual for the EC06 states the maximum charge rate for a 3S 2200 mAh battery is 10 amps. Which is better? Or should I be charging at say 5amps?
Thanks in advance.
The information you have is the maximum your charger is capable of using. Be guided by the individual pack for which charge rate to use. Most of the newer lipo packs will indicate their maximum charge rate. If there is no indication on the pack itself I would stick to 1C.
