Question "Form Charge" LiPo's ??

I'm a "newbie" so please DON'T LAUGH !!

When I bought my new NiMH batteries (last year) I was suggested to "form charge" (trickle charge for 16 hours at 250 mAh's) which I did !!

I am waiting for the arrival of some brand new LiPo's........ do I just plug the balancing plug into the adapter board and that board into my Bantam BC6-10 Charger and charge at full capacity (3.2 AMPS) of the battery pack ??

THANKS !!

Probably . All that about adaptor boards or Bantam BC6-10s is too much information...but certainly Lipos do not need a forming charge and can be charged at 1C as soon as you get them.

No forming charge necessary. They're already formed right out of the box.
