It is usually best to 'trickle' charge on the first charge and then proceed with fast charging.

Never charge over 1C, the maximum would be 1.6A for a 1600mah battery, or 3A on a 3000mah battery. You wouldn't want to charge a 2200mah at 5A for example.

If your charger doesn't have a cut-off, for easy time keeping you can round to the nearest hour, it won't blow up your battery :P Note: If you're about to do this with a LiPo, you do not have a good charger. Get a decent LiPo charger that will cut-off. Expect to spend at least £40.

Feel free to use our 'Battery Charge Calculator' on our App:

BTW, you don't need to worry about most of this if you have a smart charger :P Just make sure you don't go over 1C and it will stop when it's done :)
