    Battery Charger?

    Hello... I know it's not the right forum, but I always get a great response here. I have a Dynamite Prophet Multi-Chem charger and a Cell Spy. Do I need a better charger? I feel like this works fine, but was curious. Thanks.

    How long does it take to charge a battery pack? If it charges in a timely manner and it works fine, keep it. If it ain't broke don't fix it. Don't spend money if you don't have to.

    Usually about 30 minutes. Is that bad?

    No, that's actually pretty quick. I have an Onyx 245 dual charger and it takes mine 45 minutes to an hour to charge a 5000mah 2s lipo.

    If you are happy with it, then it is doing its job.

    2S 5200 mAh took 45 minutes. 3S 5000 mAh the about the same. Sorry about the 30 minute comment. I never timed it until last night. I leave them at storage charge of 3.7 amps.

    Looks like your charger is doing its job in the time it should do it in. My charger takes the same amount of time for the same size batteries. I would keep the charger. Don't spend money if you don't have to

    I also meant 3.7 volts. What do you guys store batteries at? Thanks for all your help.
