    I recently read the m10 instead of the m5 manual and set the battery charger at 3a instead of 1a and charged it. Everything seems to be fine and it discharged normally on the next use... may I have caused damage to the battery?

    Thanks for the insight!

    I very much doubt that you damaged the battery, Doug. It would be kinder to the battery to charge at 1 Amp, and you may get a little more charge into the battery.
