thanks for the response guys...you were very helpful.
i was actually considering those very battery since they're the only once hobbyking has in stock, and they are dirt cheap, however, i wanted to buy the turnigy nanos 1300mah (which i found on ebay) due to their higher max charge rate (5C).
i bought them at $18 a pop...and i could have have 8-9 of those (i would have realistically only bought 4-5, and save some money) if i had gone your direction. what i didn't want to do is babysit charging 4-5 batteries at 2c. i thought that would be tedious. i also wanted to try doing a continuous charge thing ... meaning i would basically just fly with one battery while charging another. hopefully, if i charged at 4-5C, i just keep cycling between my 3 batteries (+1 including the stock battery) and i can just play all the live-long day.
at least that's the plan, and i hope it works out. and yes, i got a IMax B6 from amazon. i have no clue what power source it needs, so i just got a universal AC adapter, with multiple plugs. hopefully, one of them works. i found shopping for chargers to be the most complex in this whole thing.
i'm a n00b in the RC hobby, so i don't really know what i'm doing. i should probably buy a fire extinguisher as well...
again, thanks for the input, and if you guys have any tips on how to keep my toys useful for a longer time, i would love to hear them. especially with batteries and stuff, i know diddly-squat about them.
should i even be charging at 5c? am i just asking for trouble?
