Hey guys,

I'm having issues with picking a charger for the batteries that came with my T-Rex 450 kit.

1st, the charger that came with the kit has a diferent connector than the batteries that came with the kit! What's with that?

2nd, the batteries that came with the kit are "12C 11.1V 1800mAh Lipos"s. I am looking for a charger for these, and the more reasonabley priced chargers say "for 2-3 cells" or "5 cells" etc etc. When you get to the "12 cell" chargers, they run $300! If I go with a 3-4 cell charger,does it just mean i have to leave it on my 12C battery 4x longer?

Thanks

Andrew

12c 11.1v 1800mah, means it able to be discharged at 12 times its capacity (1800x12=21.600 =21.6 amps max discharge rate)
11.1volt is a three cell pack, each cell is 3.7volts (11.1/3=3.7)
1st, the charger that came with the kit has a diferent connector than the batteries that came with the kit! What's with that?
CCould you not buy some new connectors and re solder the charger or battery pack ?

Dokey!
Thanks man! and that was fast and clears allot up! I feel silly now. Where could I have learned that? (It seems like such basic info I should have known)

Thanks
