    Traxxas EZ-Peak Dual Charger

    So I have two of the Traxxas EZ-Peak Dual iD Charger and four Lectron Pro 11.1V 5200mAh 50c 5c charge rate. They have literally been charging for hours. I have all the settings right (balance charge, lipo). To be more exact they have been on the chargers closer to three hours. It is only the third charge for them, too. Is this normal for those batteries and chargers?

    Also just got Traxxas Maxx truck. Any recommended upgrades?

    Thank you guys so much!

    UPDATE: The lights on the chargers just moved up to 2a. Still been charging for about three hours.

    The charger has a max of 100 watts which means that if you charge one battery at 1C (5.2 amps) it will use up 65.5 watts of power. If you go the full 8 amp charge then it would take around 45 minutes to an hour to charge it. When you hook up two batteries they receive 50 watts max so you are looking to considerably less power to charge them and more time to do so.
