Need 4s and a charger


I just ordered an estreme flight edge 48" and need the batteries and a charger. I was told Turnigy nano-tech 4s 2650 25-50c was really good. Also the Accucell 6 was good. Any way to get close to these prices without the $30 shipping charge and 2 week wait?? What is the best way to go?

Sorry I'm new to electrics.

WOW that one from rc dude is a little expensive. Might be best to just pay the shipping from hobbyking.

Chinese new year is over in a few days anyway and things will get back to normal soon. I've got a few things waiting with HongKong Post.

4S 2650 on a 1C charge rate will require 4 x 4.2v @ 2.6 amps = 43.68 watts = 60 minutes approx

If you want a 2C charge rate for a 30 minute approx charge time you will need 5.3 amps = 89.04 watts.

Accucel-6 is 5 amps max or 50 watts max .... you need to understand this.

You would be much happier with the Accucel-8 (8150 7 amps and 150 watts max) for a little more $. Consider all the time you will save charging!!!! LiPos should never be left unattended while charging.

Buy smart the first time!!!!
