    Summit ordered, charger included?

    I ordered the Summit and I just assumed that it comes with a charger, on the Traxxas site it doesn't mention a charger. I ordered a RTR kit (not from Traxxas tho...) do you guys think a charger will be included?

    Thanks again, lots to learn....

    This is correct... no charger.
    The basic stock charger (aka wall wart) that comes with most of the RTR's would not be sufficient in charging Summit batteries.

    Check out this thread for ideas:

    Whatever it is I just typed... could be wrong.

    You would be doing yourself a big favor
    By getting a quality charger.when you switch to lipo,which pretty much everyone does sooner or later
    You will be covered.
    A charger is not the place to try and go cheap it is a investment in your fun

    I agree 100%.
    If I have said (typed) it once, I have said (typed) it at least a dozen times:
    Your charge system is the backbone of your electric RC hobby, treat it as such. RC's will come and go, but your charge system will remain.

    EDIT:
    To keep clutter down...

    iCharger is what I have... I like it.
    PL6 is a good one too from what I read.

    +2 on the charging system. A quality charging system is a must, IMO!!!!!! Dont waste your time and/or money on junk, just bite the bullet, buy a good one and you wont be sorry. I've had good luck so far with iCharger.
