    I'm giving my son one for Christmas. How long does the stock charger take to charge the stock battery?

    Thanks

    PS, Im sure I'll bet plenty of use out of it myself.

    4 hours I belive. Best bet is to scrap it and get a real charger, a peak charger which will charge it in about a half an hour.

    How do I know when it's complete with the current charger? Should I just check for a certain voltage?

    Thanks

    that would be to hard to tell just monitor the battery for when it gets warm and then it should be nearly charged. For the 4 hour thing I am not sure on that tho.
