Default XS3 Charging?

I'm using a JR XS3 for my XXX-4 and picked up some GP 2300 mah AAs for it the other day. What kind of charger is required for me to charge them while in the TX? Anything that won't take 40 hours? Am I better off to use the charger I use for my car's batteries and make some alligator clips to hook to the battery case and set it to like 1 amp?

If your charger is designed to handle 8 cells and nimh packs, that may work ok. I would recommend 1 amp or under. For an overnight charger, I would recommend part number JRPC222. Other chargers that will work include the E-Flight Pinnacle and Pinnacle+ chargers as well as many others. If you charge through the charge jack, just be sure that you set the polarity correctly, the connector needs to be center pin negative.

Pulled up the JRPC222 on horizonhobby.com and it says in the title "1000-1400mAh," will this still work fine for 2300mAh cells?

Yes, it will just take longer to charge. The charge rate for a TX is 65 Mah.
