Charge at 1.2 to be safe or go a max of 2 volts for more punch. Don't go over that or you could damage the batteries. Also you want to set the mv to 30. Which is .5 per cell x 6 cells =30mv. This is the setting I ran with my brushless mini t. Also look at the one18th.com site. There is alot of info there.

I am experiencing long charge times with my 2100mah 3 cell 11.1v Lipo. It took 300+ minutes to charge. Is this normal? What settings do you recommend for the charger?
Thanks

Your 2100 pack should charge in just over an hour at 2 amps. What rate are you charging it at?

Default RE: charge rate

Just got back into touring cars after a 2yr layoff. Will be ordering some IB4200's. Kind of confused on proper discharging on the new cells. do they need to be deep discharged before charging? if so, discharged to what vlotage? (guessing .9 volts/cell). I just ordered the duratrax ice, and trinity dpd discharger. Any help would be appreciated.
