Default RC18B2 Charging time.

I just bought a RC18B2 and looked for the charging time for the battery. The only thing i see is 10 hours? Am i to believe it takes 10 hours to charge the battery?

I plan on changing to LiPo ASAP with a decent charger. Any suggestions?

Looking for something decent but not breaking the bank.

To figure out the charge time of a discharged battery you would divide the battery's total capacity by the charge rate of the charger.

So if you have a 5,000mah battery and a charger that has a .5amp output then it would take 10 hours to charge. Now if the charger had a 5amp output it would only take an hour.
