Well, at 170 mah to charge a 2500 mah battery you're talking almost 15 hours if it's completely discharged. So yes, we know, but why post nitro questions in the electric forum? Do what I do, charge it the night before for about 8 hours, then when I get to the race and use it a few times I just pulg the charger in and leave it on until I need it.

The first time you use a glow igniter you ned to charge it for 24 hours, after that overnight is sufficient.
