If you've got multiple battery packs for your scale Crawler Truck, then you might want to grab a couple extra chargers to always have a full battery on hand to keep the fun going and going!

Specifications:
  • Plastic Injection Molding
  • Tamiya Plug Connector
  • Input Voltage Range: 100-240v
  • Output Charging Current: 1.5A
  • Wire Length: 30.51in / 775mm
  • Weight: 2.75oz / 78g

Calculating charge time is easy: If you're using our 3000 mAh battery pack, this means the battery can output 3,000 milliamps (or 3.0 amps) per hour. Next, by using this above charger, we see it's output charging current is 1.5 amps (or 1,500 milliamps). Therefore, take the 3,000 milliamp battery capacity divided by the 1,500 milliamps charger output and you'll get "2" which means it will take two hours for a full charge of a 100% completely dead 3000 mAh battery pack. You could run multiple chargers in parallel to double the output charging current to 3 amps, which will cut the charging time in half, but this will also cause excess load resulting in elevated temperatures to the battery which decreases the lifespan of the battery. A 2 hour charge time is quite reasonable and safe for the battery pack to ensure optimal, full capacity charges and a prolonged life expectancy of your battery pack!
