    I just purchased a turnigy nano-tech 2100 mah 20c discharge lifepo4 battery for my futaba transmitter. I have a hitec charger and I want to know what settings are needed to program it? Amp rate etc

    Any help would be appreciated

    Assuming the LiFe is 3S, charge at 2.1A and stop at 10.8v (3.8v per cell).

    Note: many quality chargers have a separate setting for LiFe's but if your's doesn't just make sure you don't charge past that voltage, or at higher Amps.
