Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think the Volcano EPX can handle a LIPO without destroying your motor or ESC. The Pro version can...You may want to check it out...

My mistake, Isee the title shows Volcano Pro...***

Sorry.

Yep me too the stock charger is slow I have already had to get another one under warranty it is just enough to get you started. Looking on hobbyking.com at the Turnigy chargers and lipos and the Zippy lipos. keep me posted as to what you find. Buddy has a Venom Pro Charger and it is 120 - 130 charges quick and balances and has ac dc plug but I have seen some for less than half that.
