Hi, I have this charger (******* 2s 3s Balance charger direct 110/240v input) that I currently use to charge my small mini size LIPO packs. It charges and balances directly in a wall outlet and is really easy to use and works well. Will this work on the full size 5000 mah LIPOS that the Slash 4x4 uses? I know it will take forever to charge one of the packs, but can I use it for the time being? Thanks
Yes, I believe it will work but like you said, it will probably just take awhile to charge fully. If your going to spend the money on a big lipo, you might as well spend money for a decent lipo charger such as the accucel 6 from hobby city.
i have the accucell 8 and it is a great charger. ******* makes some pretty decent stuff for the money
Slash 4x4 RTR and Platinum
THAT WILL TAKE FOREVER! 7.6 hours to charge, to be exact.
yes that charger will work, but if you take your lipo to 80% discharge, it will take about 6hrs to charge and 100% discharge (something that should not be done with lipos) will take 7.7hrs to charge..
most lipos are rated to hold their labeled capacity in suitable voltages. my 5200 mAh will take ~5250 mAh, and isn't charged from 0.00v.Originally Posted by filmmaker
and has been proven they don't last as long when taken to 100% of their capacity..Originally Posted by Super Dude
most of mine in FE boat racing I only take them to 70%, a lot less stress on the cells.. they stay cooler and have better punch and last longer
specialy in my brushless erevo, cuz that sucker sucks some amps with the 6XL
I have other lipos that I've taken to the 100% mark and they don't performe like they used to..
well, i haven't had any probs running down to LVC with my VXL, but that isn't a 6XL in a heavy Revo lol.
Thanks everyone, very helpful!
