Battery confusion.

Actually, I sprang for the 3 amp charger, but have not noticed charge time being signifantly faster, maybe an hour/ hour and a half.
I considered the 8 amp, but was unsure how it might affect the life of my battery. Any input there, Sergey?

Not good to charge with 8 amp charger. Too many amps get it too hot and will cause damage unless it's a super big battery. I wouldn't go more than 4 or 5 amps with the juiced pack. The slower the charge the better. It's alright every once in a while if your in a hurry but I wouldn't advise it, J.S.

Thx Rooster, I suspected as much. I think I'll be okay with the 3 amp; neither it or the pack gets warm to the touch
when it use. Still takes about 6 hours to fully charge my 21 Ah.
