    Ezpeak plus and spc 2s 6500mah

    Would this be a good charger to charge the SPC 2s 65000mah lipos. Using the dual charging and balance adapter? About how long would it take to charge the 2s 6500mah lipos?
    I got a new Emaxx 39085.So in need lipos and charger to get it running.Was thinking of buying ez pack plus and spc lipos.

    It would be a little on the underpowered side...
    The charger maxes out at 6amps... which means your max charge rate is going to be less than 1C at .92C.

    Charge time (not including balancing) should be around 50 minutes.

    EDIT:
    Scratch that... a little longer because the 80watt limit is being hit with the above settings.

    Thank u Jimmie. Besides being a little week all the reviews i read it seen to be a fairly good charger.
    After spending 600+ on a truck the boss(wife) put me on a budget for batteries and charger.It is one or the other the traxxas ez peak plus or a onxy 245.

    EZPeak+ then... the 245 is lacking a very important feature; storage.

    That's my exact setup, I just got everything in the mail. How do I setup the charger for 2s 6500 with the balance board? Also Jimmie, I think I seen your post before saying that you plug in the balance wires first or the power wires first?? Can't recall exactly which was first.

    I always hook the main leads up first.

    Is it bad to hook the balance leads 1st? I hook the balance lead up by itself all the time to balance before charging, then hook up the main leads to charge or put to storage charge.

    It depends on the charger. For example on what i was told by FMA, With my pl8 its balance connector first then main leads, pl6 either way, cellpro 10s main leads then balance connector. Removal doesn't matter.
    Not sure on other chargers but I've always used balance leads first on old chargers.
    Google search trumps Wiki. Refer to user guide.

    The EZ-Peak Plus order of connections is main wires first, then balance plug. As this is a Traxxas Chargers thread (and forum), that's all that really needs to be said.

    For proper LiPo storage, they should be put at a certain voltage... right around 3.8v/cell. The EZPeak+ can do this for you automatically. The 245 requires you to do this manually... and ONLY if the cell voltage is already below storage voltage. If the cells are above 3.8v/cell, the 245 has no way to discharge the cells to bring them to proper storage voltage.
    Whatever it is I just typed... could be wrong.
