Hello, How are you ? My name is Mike, How can I help you have an RC good time ?
I want to upgrade my charger
Will this one do the trick?
I want something that will work with either NIMH or Lipo
Michael D.
Sure it will :-)
I currently have the 1800 mah NIMH but eventually want to upgrade to Lipo
Is it also a rapid charger? My standard charger takes 9 hrs to charge the NIMH battery
Michael D.
this will be MUCH better
I'm also trying to watch the budget
Michael D.
the first one you chose will do the trick. not lightning fast , but better than stock
How long for full charge? 1-2 hrs?
Michael D.
Id say for an 1800 mah an hour average
How do I know which amp to use?
my current battery doesn't have amps listed
Michael D.
charge at the lowest setting for the charger. 1 amp is safe
when would I use the 2 or 3 amp setting? Just curious
Michael D.
more for lipo batterys , no NIMH
whats the reason you recommended the $50 charger? Is charge time a lot faster?
Michael D.
it has more features ., it can charge ALL of the types of rc batterys. so instead of getting a limited charger , you can spend $10 more and get the only charger you will need . plus yes it will be faster
thanks for your help
Michael D.
my pleasure
is this a purchase for tonight ?
no, just doing research
Michael D.
my pleasure, have a good night
