Hi guys

Fairly new to electrix I have bought an in line charging board for charging up to 6 battreries in line for my mcpx blade 3.7v 1s200 mah batteries the question I have is how does it work do I set the charge rate at. 2 of an amp or do imultiply by 6 and charge at 1.2 amps

If as I assume the batteries are all connected in parallel then you set the charge rate to a maximum of 6 time the individual battery charge rate.

However unless you are sure all the batteries are at roughly the same level of charge it might be prudent to set it a say half that to avoid the condition where the lowest charge battery gets a 'heavy' charge until its voltage has risen to the same level as the others.

Won't the cells almost instantly be at the same voltage as soon as they are plugged in because they are in parallel, so they will all get the same charge current. That is not to say that as far as possible all of the cells should be at or near to the same voltage before plugging them in.
