    On the battery itselfe it say's that its a li-ion battery is, but on the warnings it say's you only charge with a lipo-charger.

    It is a li-on battery. The labelling would be more correct if it stated to use a charger designed for lithium chemistry batteries. A li-on can be charged at a 1c or higher rate like a lipo but ideally is charged at a 0.7c rate.

    the Yuneec TX battery has 3 18650's in parallel.
    It is a 1S3P battery, so 1S is the generic charger setting.
    A 2amp charge current is about max for a 3P pack.
