Traxxas EZ-Peak Charger, 4-Amp
The AC EZ-Peak 4amp NiMH charger combines simple plug-in-and-charge operation with selectable charge rates and installed Traxxas High-Current Connector for convenient charging of all Traxxas Power Cell NiMH batteries. Just plug in a 5- to 8-cell NiMH or NiCad battery pack and the EZ-Peak begins charging at the charge rate you select. Charge at one amp for receiver packs, two amps for the Power Cell 1200mAh batteries included with Traxxas 1/16 models, or four amps for 3000-5000mAh Power Cell NiMH packs. Advanced peak-detection circuitry makes sure the battery receives a perfect charge, every time for peak performance and maximum run time. The status LED flashes red to indicate charging is in progress, then turns green when charging is complete. The EZ-Peak 4amp charger is equipped with a Traxxas High-Current Connector for use with all Traxxas NiMH Power Cell packs and other NiCad and NiMH packs with Traxxas connectors.

Traxxas was started in 1986 with an idea for what was at that time an entirely new concept for a fully assembled, hobby-class R/C car. This new car would have all the same benefits of a hobby-class kit such as replaceable parts, hop-ups, and a high-quality component radio system, however it would be fully assembled with a colorful body, right out of the box. Traxxas coined the term "Ready-To-Run" (RTR) to describe this new class. Since a fully assembled, ready-to-run car would appeal to the entry-level beginner, a toll-free customer support line was set up from day one to service an entirely new category of hobby consumer. At first, acceptance of the RTR concept was slow because traditional R/C kits had always been unassembled. Once people realized that a Traxxas RTR had the same performance and quality as the traditional R/C kits, only that they didn't have to build it, the ready-to-run Cat was a runaway hit! A kit version would still be offered for those who still wanted to have the building experience.
