Default SKYRC Charger Questions

IMG_6860.jpg

IMG_6861.jpg

Hi All I need some help please, new to racing, well back after 30 years, and oh boy is my head spinning, attached is a image on my battery pack and charger SKY RC S60.
I have two questions, can someone tell me what Amp to set the charge at, my charger has a range between 0 - 6amp.
Also I have figure in the bottom centre which is the timer of how long the battery has been charging but what are the number in the right hand side of the display which in the image reads 10?
Any help as always is greatly appreciated.

Lee

you want to charge it at 5 amps as the battery is 5000mah, if the battery was a 4500mah then you would charge at 4.5 amps and so on

Number in the bottom right is the amount of mAH the charger has put back in to the battery.

Notice you're putting it in storage there too. When charging, use the balance charge option rather than fast charge as it will charge both cells in the pack more evenly.

If it's the same software as my charger (looks it) then if you press the INC button in a charge program then it will flip to the individual cell voltage, pres again to go back to main screen.

I've recently come back after 30 years away too so feel your pain.

Yep 30 years and oh my, there seems to be far more emphasis on car set up now which i guess makes sense because there's so much power and battery life. Having said that my K2 was second hand roller so im just stripping it down and ensuring it was built correctly, should be up and running by Christmas then I will found out just how fast they are. Not sure if I will race yet but we will see, thanks for you help guys.
