Default Belt cp battery

The stock belt cp battery takes up to 5 hrs to charge with the stock wall unit and balance charger, is this normal? is there any proper precautions to take with charging the battery as the manual says dont charge it for any more than 2 hrs

5hrs?? Till light goes solid?? do you have a lipo tester to check voltage in each cell? Do not overcharge, each cell should not exceed 4.15 volts (what I was told)

Yep . That is normal, It always takes mine 4-5 hrs to charge. I have three batteries and have charged all of them at least 20 times, without a problem.
