Default Charging at correct Amps?

OK so I got my battery connections soldered and have charged my first battery. It should of charged at 5.0 amps (5000 mah) but didn't. It charged at around 1.4 amps... my 2nd battery is charging at the full 5amp? Any Ideas?

You should post your answer. That way, if anyone searches for this topic they will get the answer along with the question.
