Assuming it is a wall-charger that came with the igniter that has a NiCad / NiMH cell, then I would say 10hrs is the minimum and 24hrs wouldn't hurt it.

If you haven't changed anything and the web sites say "4S to 6S" then you are good to go.
The capacity only adds run time (and weight), it has no effect on the motor or ESC.

The distributor knows that most users will never stress the packs beyond about 5C, so they'll never know what the true rating is.

Most of these kinds of glow igniters use one NiCad cell (1.2v) and the meter is reading current (not voltage).
