The 5000MAH states to charge at 1C (5.0A) which takes me about 90 minutes to charge. The 4000MAH I charge at 1C (4.0A) which takes an equally long time to charge. Can I charge these safely at a higher rate?
I like the batteries, especially the 5000MAH but the charge time is forever.
I charge with a Dynamite Vision Ultra
Ask the battery manufacturer for max charge rates, 2c is common these days
You will need a better charger to charge at higher rates
To charge a 2s 5000mah sized pack at 2c (10 amps) requires a charger with at least 84 watts output
Xerun 150 / Tenshock SC401 3500kv
My charger can charge at 7.0A which would be almost twice the rate I am charging the 4000MAH's at now. Will venom batteries handle this level of charging?
What is a good charger with reasonable pricing that can charge faster?
"Ask the battery manufacturer for max charge rates" because this is considered Support and Traxxas does not allow Support of third-party products on their forums.
