I just bought a new duratrax 7 cell 4600mah battery for my slash.
I hooked it up to my Onyx charger for the first time, and it only took 2100mah the first time and stopped after 56 minutes.
Is this right?
The battery was warm at the end of the cycle, and I set up the charger to go to the 4600mah before charging.
Would the battery be shipped 50% full?
I've heard of others that have a "storage" setting of 50-60% so that may be.

It's possible that the battery was charged for testing and then sat on a shelf for a period of time slowly losing it's charge.Originally Posted by Nate Simcoe
Hi your charger should never show the full reading capacity in MAH of your battery pack because your battery never reaches zero capacity (totally Dead) so if it's warm after peak charge your good to go no worries.
Thanks...I'll just go with it...
It did seem to run OK.
yah every battery ive had has come around 40-50% charged already.
Lead, follow, or get out of my way!
