Batteries and Chargers

The battery required for this vehicle is a Power Cell NiMH rechargeable 3000 mAh 7 cells of 8.4 V (illustrated left). There should be about 45 minutes to load the vehicle with the quick charger (included; shown below) or the multipurpose feeder EZ-Peak More Traxxas (shown somewhat lower). This battery should get you 15 to 25 minutes.

The Stampede is offered with a quick charger that plugs into a standard cigarette lighter (shown at right). I advise you NOT to recharge the battery while driving, as this could be very dangerous. It could even be that the vehicle caught fire or the battery explodes. Therefore, you might want to purchase a  power adapter AC / DC Traxxas  that would allow you to use this charger with a standard wall outlet (shown at far right).

Even better, you could buy an EZ-Peak charger More Traxxas , which is safe and easy to use. These chargers operate through a system called “automatic battery identification iD”, which automatically recognizes the iD Traxxas battery you use (and adapt to). The charger can then optimize the loading conditions of the battery used, which is very convenient. Simply connect the battery (or cell) in the EZ-Peak charger and press the “Start” button and let it down for 2 seconds. You do not need to know everything about batteries to optimize the performance of your batteries and your vehicle.

If the batteries you use are not type iD, you can still load them using the EZ-Peak charger. However, you must manually change the settings to get proper loading. This is rather easy to do; Moreover, the charger recognizes the battery type used (NiMH or lithium polymer) and will adjust accordingly in the presence of iD battery. You can even get an extra battery EZ-Peak  Traxxas , allowing you to charge two battery packs at once. This is particularly useful if your vehicle needs two separate sets of batteries to operate.

Conclusion

This toy is really great! What more can i say? If you like remote control cars, especially the monster trucks, there’s a good chance you will like this vehicle. If you like Unmanned ground vehicles, I strongly advise you to try the Stampede!

Stay tuned for future assessments that I will carry on the Short Track Truck 4WD Slash Fox Traxxas 1/10 and the equally fantastic Summit truck 4WD 1/10 Traxxas. In the meantime, have a great week!
