Default Charger questions

i am looking at getting the Aftershock RTR brushless system. i have a couple questions about the charger that comes with the system.

1) does it have a DC charging option?
2) can it charge both batteries at once?
3) how long does it take to charge the stock 3200Mah batteries?
4) how long would it take to charge a 5000Mah battery?

i also have some more basic questions if someone wouldn't mind a few PM's.

thanks

Hey RC FREAK, the Aftershock is a great truck.  I baught an Earthquake, charger and batt's rom URCHobby...Kurt gave me a great deal and the shipping was outstanding!!  He has a realy nice charger on sale now.  These are tougher than other redcat trucks.  You'll not be disapointed.

Hello RC Freak I have experience with the Earthquake 8e but its basically the same truck so I will try to answer your questions.

1. The included charger does not.
2. One Battery at a time.
3. Roughly three hours for each battery.
4. Just guessing but I would say around 4 1/2 - 5 Hours.

They are not however tougher than the XTR series but good trucks none-the-less.

And for the charger i would suggest going with any Duratrax Onxy charger. It will charge a 5000mah battery in just under an hour and charge the 3200mah in just about 30 mintues, they do have DC power capabiltys and one of them can indeed chrage two batteries at one time.
