How fast will this charge my battery?

To work this out, divide the battery's mAh by the charger's mA.
For example a 3500mAh (3Ah) battery charging on a 800mA (0.8A) charger will take 4.375 hours (3500/800 = 4.375).

If you charger has a higher mA output than the battery's mAh then adjust them to match. For exmaple, If I had a 6.0A charger but only a 3500mAh battery I'd adjust the output of the charger to 3.5A to ensure it doesn't charge faster than 1 hour.

Charging a battery faster than 60 minutes can damage them and potentially cause a fire. Always ensure you're charging the battery within it's specified charge C rate.
Will this work with my charger?

To see if a charger is compatible with your battery there are just 2 main things to check.

  • Can the charger charge your battery's chemistry type (eg. NiMH or LiPo)
  • Can the charger charge at your battery's voltage (eg. the charger might only be able to charge up to 11.1v but your battery is 14.8v)

If you've checked both of these things then all you need to do is ensure you select the correct connector and charge it on the correct setting (if the charger is adjustable)

What charger should I buy?

When you're starting out there are basically two main options to choose between. You will either get a fairly basic non-adjustable charger or a smart (also known as a 4-button charger).

Basic chargers

These are a great option as they are cheap and don't require any adjusting/programming to charge. The downside is they are limited to a specific battery type and are generally pretty slow to charge (2+ hours).

If you have a NiMH battery with a basic charger to suit, and then upgrade to a LiPo, you'll need a new charger that is compatible with LiPo batteries to charge it safely.

Smart chargers

The smart chargers are very versatile and basically every hobby enthusiast has one of these as they can virtually charge any battery this hobby throws at us and charge it as quickly as possible (about an hour). However, of course, they require the user to select the battery they are wanting to charge (it's pretty easy once you know how).
