    emaxx 3903 charging batteries

    just got my emaxx and love it so far drove it every bit of 5 min. today.I have the dynamite twin peak charger and seems that it is false peaking after 15 min. of charging.Is it because the batteries are new or just a crappy charger? what are some chargers you guys are using that dont false peak? NIMH of course

    Dynamite ultra passport , traxxas ez peak plus, duratrax 235, those are some of the best known for good peaking and when you decide to go lipo those are good as well. You want something with more than 5amps so those have from 6-8amps though they are single NiMH chargers its worth it for the quality you will get.

    Your batteries will get longer runtimes each time up till about the 10th charge/discharge or so. You don't want to run NiMh batteries more than 2-3 times per day. Make sure they don't get too hot, but they should be just a bit warm to the touch after charging them.
