Battery Charge Times

1 post in this topic

It is usually best to 'trickle' charge on the first charge and then proceed with fast charging.


Never charge over 1C, the maximum would be 1.6A for a 1600mah battery, or 3A on a 3000mah battery. You wouldn't want to charge a 2200mah at 5A for example.


If your charger doesn't have a cut-off, for easy time keeping you can round to the nearest hour, it won't blow up your battery :P Note: If you're about to do this with a LiPo, you do not have a good charger. Get a decent LiPo charger that will cut-off. Expect to spend at least £40.


Feel free to use our 'Battery Charge Calculator' on our App:


BTW, you don't need to worry about most of this if you have a smart charger :P Just make sure you don't go over 1C and it will stop when it's done :)
