Default Skyrc d100 settings

Hi. I hope it's okay i start a new thread in this section. I now got the skyrc d100 charger and are going to charge my 4000mah 2S battery.
I set the charger to 4 amps and 2S. But what about the C value? Heard some talk about charging with only 1C ?

C rating is based on Capacity of the pack. 4000mAh is a pack of 4AH ... 4 AMP hours. Therefore 1C = 4A -which is what you have set.

1C .... which means Amp equal to the AmpHour number is the safest charge rate for a LiPo.

Hi. Well i think i did all things right but the Turnigy 4000mah 2S lipo comes with only one cable no balance cabel. So i got a "Cell error" and a "connection error" short after start charging. So i think i have to look for an old lipo charger without the balance funktion for it to charge the lipo. I guess it's no go to try charging the lipo through only with balance connection and not the regular banana cables? Sorry for me being all new with this but i will not burn my house down just yet

You won't find a charger without balancer. LiPo's must be charged with a balancer.

Why not just get a balancer cable? LiPo's need balancing.

Think you misunderstand my problem. I know about the balancing lipos but the problem are that i got 2 lipos without the balance wire, only one wire. And those i couldn't charge on any new chargers only an old one i found who can do the trick
