How long should it take to peak charge an Rx pack
 
I just bought a Team Orion 1100 mA Ni-Mh receiver pack & also bought a Piranha Digital peak charger. How long should it take to charge the receiver pack @ .9 amps (900 mA). TIA, I'm trying to get the car ready for the race tomorrow.

it should take between 30 minutes to about an hour, but being that its a new battery it may take a few times before the battery is able to take a full charge, also peak charge it before you 're race .

If you have a peak charger then why do you care how long it takes to charge the pack it will finsh when the pack is fully charged unless it false peaks, just make sure it dosnt get hot.

Peak charging a 1100 mah pack should take about an hour or less (@ 1.0 amps, depending on much much charge was left in the pack from before.
I do not recommend regular cycling of good RX packs, it really is not nessesary on NiMh RX packs. Once ever month or so should be fine.
GOOD quality RX packs should take a FULL charge the very first time. (This is from personal experience)

First time I charged my 1100 RX pack, it took almost 11,000 seconds @ .5 amps. :eek: Now I charge at 1amp and it takes about an hour or so.

Thanks guys. I figured something was wrong when it "peaked?" after 6 minutes. I had set the delta peak to 3mV/C & it was too sensitive. I reset the charger & got it charged. Had a very good day of racing yesterday. Thanks again.
