    traxxas ez peak 2 amp

    I just got my Rustler and it came with the stock 8.4 v battery. It also came with unknown voltage 7cell 3800Mah battery (non-Traxxas). I want to buy a 9.6v 5000Mah battery.

    Will the ez peak 2 amp handle all of the above batteries and how long would it take to charge batteries?

    The EZ-Peak 2 amp will work with both packs, it charges 5-8 cell packs.

    What is the charge time? I want something a little quicker than the 8-hour charger that came with the car.

    NiMh packs are usually charged at 1C, that's 1 amp of charging power for every 1Ah (1000Mah) of battery capacity. If you charged your 3800Mah pack at 3.8 amps it should be fully charged in a hour so with a two amp charger you're looking at more than 90 minutes.

    Ok. Thanks for the reply. I just wanted something a little faster than the stock 8-hour charger.
