Elite Batteries 4500mah SC 7.2 V

I have thE Elite Batteries 4500mah SC 7.2 V with this Duratrax IntelliPeak ICE Charger . I have the following questions, hope to get few great opinions from you guys

I have this I-POWER AC to DC12V/15A Transformer - good enough for the power supply?

- what is the best charge current should I use?
- what is the Trickle Charge Current for this battery?
- Discharge Current 0.9 is o.k?
- what about the Peak Sensitivity?
- what is the Temperature Cutoff Range?
- what is the Maximum Charge Capacity?

I am sorry with heaps of questions here.. million million thanks Confused

I have the manual but I just want the views from the Experts instead of the book

P/S - I am runing the Novak 3.5 brushless..

5 tot 5.5 A charge is just safe
No Tickle setting
Discharge current can be set at its maximum, discharge voltage indeed 0.9v per cell
Delta Peak can be set at 3 or 4mV per cell, do you have a lot of false peaking you may try up to 8mV/C (1st charge can give some difficulties)
Temp cutoff I believe 45 to 55 degrees celcius, you have to take a look at it.
Capacity awith4500mAh I would set to max 5000, as with the temp it is just an extra safety and most batteries can charge more.
Speed is just a fiction
