Hey all.
After mannnnny hours of talking & watching vids & making sure he wasn't going to renig on his decision
My son got an ECX Torment for his birthday (bought @ TT hobby).
(Yes it's his)
He has put 3 packs through it alreaedy & he's loving it. (I'm kinda impressed too)

The only problem we're facing is the charging times between runs.
It came RTR w/ a wall charger which works, but it takes 12-15hrs before the batt. even starts to get warm.
Coincedently I'm not able to know if it's even getting a full charge.

Would anyone here have a cheap quick charger for sale that I could pick up from them in the next couple of days??? I know I could go back to the store for one but if anyone here needs a lil $ & they have an extra charger... catch my drift?

Anyways Thanks for reading.
My son is "Super excited" about having his own thread on here too!


Peace

O.K.
Scratch the idea that we need a charger.

I took him out to run it & he got maybe 10 minutes of play time. :pissed:

I didn't want him to have to wait till tomorrow to run it again, so I made a trip out to T&T's and pickied up a charger & another battery, so now he should at least get to enjoy his new toy...

Yep...


Sorry about the pics fellas.
Problem w/ my phones right now.
I will get them transferred to my computer asap though...


Anyway's.
I bought a used Venom 3000mah battery from T&T's w/ the charger on Sunday.
I took it home & charged it for approx. 3 hrs. till the charger just shut itself off.
Nothing! :brickwall:
Did it again... Still nothing. :pissed:
I took it back to T&T's, explained what I had tried.
He slapped it on his high $$$ charger.
Charged it for like 5 minutes. Hmm? :popcorn:
Then discharged it to see if it had anything in it... 10 minutes he later found that it discharged a lil bit more than it accepted but it was a bad battery.
So he hooked me up w/ a new 1800mah pack which was the same price :thumbsup::thumbsup:

He could have said "screw you buddy, You're the one who bought a used battery".
But he didn't, so I am grateful!
Good C.S. in my book.

Anyways. *rant over*


Pics soon...
