Default Confirmation on safely charging lipos

Hello everyone I'm relatively new to RC and to this forum.
I have recently received a couple LiPO batteries and have an idea on how to charge them but would like confirmation.

I have two 2s 6500mAh 50c Gens ace lipos and can't seem to find a charge rating for them. I have only found one third party seller ( that said the fast change rate is 5c. I have gone to Gens Ace's website and found nothing and the instructions provided with the battery are more of a generic safety sheet.

So far what I've been thinking of doing from general info I found was to charge the battery like this... For a 6500mah at 1c would mean charging at 6.5A. Is this ok to do? Is it to high or to low?

Any and all help would be much appreciated, Thanks​​​​​​!!

1 to 2 C is fine for most batteries
