Response come late because the problem is not pure ion description in G4.

G4GenericIon allows to have partial charge - there is GetCharge() method allowing to know dynamic charge of a track.

However, whatever charge is defined for the primary ion for today we have only one model for ion transportation which force charge to be equilibrium charge for given velosity and media. This model is fine for tracking in solid or liquid materials.

You can try out $G4INSTALL/examples/extended/electromagnetic/TestEm7

with ionC12 macro
