    Default How long does it take for you to charge a 2s lipo?

    I've got the Dynamite ac/dc charger and my Team Orion and Peak Racing 2s 3200 packs take over an hour to charge at 3.5 amps. Is my charger just too weak to charge them any quicker or what?

    the Orion pack is on the charger right now and it's been on there for 1 hour and 13 minutes and it's still charging. Nothing gets hot so I don't believe that there's an issue, I'm just impatient

    Generally lipo packs take right at an hour. 3200 packs should be charged at 3.2A. The last bit of the charge takes the longest, and going over an hour is not unusual.

    If I remember correctly getting from 50-85 percent is rather quick... then slowly filling the last 15% takes almost as long as the first 85% of its capacity.

    the first time I charged a venom 2100 3s it took near 2 houres. after runs it still too nearly 1.5 hours. That last part takes longer to charge cause the blancer is trying to well Balance the cells. At least that is my theory.
    If it ain't broke, fix it till it is.

    My 3s takes around 5 hours...

    1amp on the 5800 :/ takes forever....
    I used to lose my balls all the time. If you are afraid of losing them then just get a tupperware bowl, some grease, and a toothpick. Dip the toothpick in the grease and then catch a ball.

    My Triton Jr charges my 5000mah 7.4V in about an hour each time.
