The instructions that come with the pack will tell you quite clearly, as the results of charging at too high a rate can be disastrous.

Maximum charge rate on ANY LiPoly is 1C, or one times the pack's capacity in mAh. 1500mAh pack? 1500mA charge rate.

On the Triton you have to set the voltage too. For a 3 cell lipo set 11.1 volts.
