    Lipo Chargers for dummies

    Hey guys i'm new to the rc world, I just bought my first which is a 4x4 ultimate slash, anyways long story
    short it came with a 5000 mah lipo 2 cell 7.4 battery but no charger. I read some posts about the Traxxas
    2933 EZ-Peak Plus 6-Amp charger being a good one but like i said i'm unsure?

    oh and also the brand of the battery is...

    Purposely misspelling or adding spaces or characters to a filtered word is called "Bypassing the language filter," which is usually good for 5 warning points. There is a certain retailer whose name and whose house brands are not allowed on the Traxxas forums. You found one of those brands.

    From the reports received it seems to be pretty good for a charger limited by an 80W maximum.

    I use a venom pro charger which includes the power supply and charges at a 6 amp rate.

    Are you using the traxxas wall charger?

    I bought the Traxxas easy peak 6amp and i fear it maybe too small for a lipo 3s 8400mah battery? It is a 1/10th scale truck.

    I'm almost sure it will charge you battery, it will just take longer, 6000mah battery on a Traxxas easy peak 6amp will take around 1hr, 8400mah maybe 1.5/1.8hr's.
    I still trying to fiqure this stuff out so I may be wrong...

    Hi guys


    Is it posible to charged all lipos with 6amp?

    Im guessing the higher the amp you use to charged a lipo
    That faster for it to be charged?

    Consult your specific LiPo pack's instructions for charging directions.
