The little 2200mah 2s lipo that I got at Randy's been taking 2c charges as it suppose too. But I hate waiting for batteries to charge up. So I started doing 3C and the battery didnt' break a sweat. Last nite I pumped two charges through that poor battery at 4.3C(10A). Now I'm happy with the charge time. Battery never got hot nor swelled up.

I sure am glad you are doing the testing in your garage and not mine.
But thats pretty cool that the cheapo packs are starting to perform like some of the more expensive packs.

The difference with a brandname battery is lifecycle and quality. I can't wait to charge at 30A!

So if i'm thinking correctly 30A= full charge in under 1 min


And does the cheaper price tag make up for lose in life cycle.

That remains to be seen. If I can get more than 50 full power cycles out of them in 6 months, I say it was worth the money.
The enerland cell that I got only takes 2200mah out of the advertised 2500mah now. I still get full power out of it...down to 2.5V(per cell) cutoff.
