    Default Triton charger and 10440's?

    Can a Triton hobby charger be used on AW10440's?

    There is more than one model of the triton chargers. But if it can be set to 3.7v li-ion or lipo and charge current of 100ma then yes it will work fine.

    Is this the proper setting?

    .1A would be better but will work at .2A with maybe a shorter cell life most 10440 li-ions only have about 350ma capacity at best. A charge rate of 1C is .35A. I have charged at 1C but cell life will probably be shorter. Would be best at .1A if the charger will go down to that.

    I can set it to .1A, is that = to 100mAh?

    You are correct, more testing is in order.

    Nothing wrong in charging Lithium Ions at .7C - or the closest in this case of 200 mAh/.2Amps.

    Thank you for the info, I would think 200mAh will reduce the charge time as well. At what rate would I want to charge my 26650's (4000mAh 3.8v IMR).

    I have a couple of those gems. Too bad they aren't available any longer. I charge mine anywhere between 2000 mAh - 2,800 mAh/2 - 2.8 Amps.

    Thank you for the info...They seem to be great cells, I forget where I got these.

    Thank you for the info Dave, what exactly does "C" stand for? I'm trying to get a better understanding of this stuff, so please excuse my ignorance.

    "C" equals the capacity of the cell in mAh, or Ah. For charging (or discharging) rates, this is expressed as mA, or A, as we are referring to a rate, rather than a quantity. Similar to miles per hour compared to miles, or distance traveled.
