With Lithium batteries ...
Maximum charge rate is typically listed at .5C.
So, as long as your battery pack is greater than 4Ah, 2.0Ah should be acceptable.
E.G. A 10Ah battery should be charged with a ≤5A charger.
Charging at notably less than 5A should increase battery lifespan only slightly.
Note: When calculating maximum charge rate (AND DISCHARGE RATE) use actual capacity rather than original!
