Default questions about Passport Mini P1 charger

Hey guys, being that the charger that came with my well-over 15-year-old Traxxas Revo 3.3 was OK for charging the receiver battery, it really wasn't all that good of a charger for charging the EZ-Start batteries so, I bought this little Passport Mini P1 Charger to take that charger's place for the starter unit batteries. Worked pretty good. Even worked good for conditioning the batteries when they needed it....

Well, now that I'm getting more into Lipo technology, how will this little inexpensive cheap charger work for charging 5000 MaH and above 3S and 4S Lipos? Some day I'd like to get away from Traxxas batteries altogether but for now I'd just be using it to charge a non-Traxxas 11.1 3S lipo if this little charger can charge a battery like that in a reasonable amount of time. Thanks.

people that said that even for a 5000 Mah 3S pack, Iím looking at closer to two hours for it to charge if itís discharged and needing to be fully charged so I may just retire this charger. Only have thirty bucks for it several
years ago.
