    It depends...
    For example: if you are charging a NiMH that is 3000mah, you will charge it at 3 amps and it will take 1 hour. If you have a 5000 mah, you will charge it at 5 amp and it will take 1h. (charging at 1C)
    IF you are charging LIPOs; then depending if your cells are off, it could take longer because you "balance charge"; and off course that if you have any battery larger (more capacity) than 6000mah it will take more than 1 hour because the EZ Plus max charging is 6 amp.
    I hope that I made sense
    Cheers

    He's not asking about the EZ-Peak Plus, he's asking about the original EZ-Peak.

    The 2930 EZ-Peak has a fixed 4A output, so for a 3000mAh pack it will take approximately 45 minutes to charge it.
    I need R/Cers anonymous.

    Thanks guys, I guess i discharge mine too low, It takes more then 45min for my 3000mah 8.4v battery. I am okay with that though. I have 2 ezpeak chargers. When i go li-po i will get the ez peak plus.
