    I need help about charger and battery

    Hello i got a charger and a battery, the battery takes 6 hours to load and then drive in like 10 minutes. If i buy a better charger will it take 5 hours to load then?

    If i buy a new battery will i get a charger in same package? And if i buy a new battery that takes 2 hours to load, will it take 2 hours if i use my suck charger then?

    Thanks.

    NiMh take a while to charge... even with the best charger it will take about an hour to get it to full capacity.
    10-15 minutes is all I got out of my NiMh too... so I think that is alright.

    Since going LiPo I have never looked back. I can charge up 6 of my 2200mAh packs in about 20 minutes from storage and have about 3 hours of run time.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    What charger do you have? If it is what came with your RC, it is not rated for LiPo and is very extremely dangerous to use with LiPo.

    For him load means charge. Only for mini ones the max amps for it is 1.5.

    The charger that comes with the RC is not for LiPo. DO NOT USE IT FOR LIPO.
    As stated in post #10...


    25C is the discharge rate... discharge rate has very little to do with what it can be charged at.
    How long it takes to charge depends on which charger you have... or which charger you are going to get that is capable of LiPo.

    Typically, a 2000mAh battery can last about 20 minutes; give or take.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.
