Ok Guys I'm back with more questions.....Need more Advice.
I've been looking all over the web and found 2s lipo packs everywhere. Some are outrageously expensive, others, not so bad.Â* I am quite comfortable dropping 45 to 65 dollars on a 5000 or 5800mah lipo pack.
Whole new ball game. I've surfed for hours on ebay and amazon and every hobby site on google's database and found some CRAZY PRICES.... $65 ~ 100+, $169 just for a charger!!??!!?!? WOW. Still in shock. Why does the charger cost as much or more than the battery? I do not need a charger with all the bells and whistles.Â* I'm still very new to this. I've found chargers on ebay for less than $50 but none have the stock 4mm banana plug. I want to plug my battery into the charger and then into the car. simple. Website that i purchased the truck from has lipos with the stock plug but no chargers. (jnjhobbies.net) I've found a couple chargers with what looked like alligator clips, is this a good way to charge or a fire waiting to happen? (remember I have a 4 month old baby so fire hazzards are a no no.)
Do I have no choice but to change the connections on the car and current batteries to accommodate a lipo/charger?
What brand chargers do you guys use, how much did you pay and where did you get it?
Does anyone know of a good battery and charger combo? At some point I'd like to go up to 8.4v if possible.
Please feel free to list any advice/opinions/knowledge/experience.
Thanks again for any responses and the patience to help an amateur.
