You can charge it nearly any rate you want , and 2C on a 4ah cell is 8 amps.

C is the capacity of the pack. Your pack has a capacity of 4000 mAh divide mAh by 1000 to get amp hours. Your pack is a 4 amp hour pack. Amp hours times the charge or discharge rate tells you how fast you can charge or discharge the pack.1c would be 4 amps for a 4000 mah battery. If your battery is only rated at 1c and you charge it at 3.9 amps you better have a fire extinguisher handy. Even on my 2200 mah battery that is 2c I don't charge it over 3 amps.


Regards.
Andy.
