    the thunder AC6 (i love mine) will charge a 2s 5000mah lipo in 1 hour. which will give you almost a half hour of runtime in the volcano.

    The stock charger on the avalanche will take like 2 or 3 hours PER lipo. So, figure 5-6 hours to charge both packs. And you get about 15 minutes of runtime per charge.
    So, if you get a avalanche or 8e, you will still want a better charger.

    I am using the Turnigy Accucel-6 and the Accucel-8 , both are fairly cheap. You can purchase them from Hobby King, also run the Turnigy Nano-Tech batteries and have had really good luck with the Lipos.  Both chargers require a ac/RC adapter. I converted a old power supply from a computer to one and run chargers on it. Works great with no issues!

    Love the Turnigy batteries. Less than $20 from Hobbyking for a 2s 3300 mah. Currently get a solid twenty minutes out of it.
