I am new to electric

I have a 992 palm charger....I have the charger hooked up with balance hooked up....started yesterday at 2pm and now it is 6am and it shows I have 4.08 volts....I have a 4 cell lipo 2200 mah...14.8v and 25c......How long does this whole balance and charge thing take? I don't even know if this 992 palm charger works....what should I do....keep waiting? Can I unplug the balance plug and then start charging? What else should I buy to complete full maintance on my batteries? I read something about checking your voltage ? This battery thing really has me confused.

Do you mean the MRC Super Brain 992 charger ? Full details always help

How long it should take to charge depends on what rate (in Amps) you've chosen to charge it at and what type of charge you've selected (balance charge, charging with out balance etc). You haven't told us any of those so we can't tell how long it should take.

A fire extinguisher perhaps.

Where were you while the battery was charging?
Where was the battery?
