How Long Does It Take to Charge the Megalodon Monster Truck?

Charging the Megalodon Monster Truck is one of the most important elements of owning a RC car. Knowing how long it takes to charge the battery is essential in ensuring that your car is always ready for action and that you don’t run out of power during a race.

The Megalodon Monster Truck, like most RC cars, uses a rechargeable nickel-cadmium (NiCd) battery which must be charged in order to use the car.

The length of time it takes to charge the Megalodon Monster Truck varies depending on several factors including the type of charger being used and the capacity of the battery. Generally speaking, charging times range from 15 minutes up to an hour or more depending on how much power has been depleted from the battery prior to charging.

If you are using an advanced charger such as an AC/DC “smart” charger, then you can expect a much faster charging time than if you were using a basic charger. Advanced chargers are designed to detect when a certain level of charge has been reached in the battery and then shut off automatically, preventing overcharging and potential damage to your RC car’s battery.

Another factor that affects charging time is temperature. Charging times can be extended if temperatures are too low or too high as this affects how quickly your NiCd cells can accept a charge. For optimal charging times, it is best to ensure your car’s batteries are stored in temperatures between 18-32°C (65-90°F).

How long it takes to charge your Megalodon Monster Truck ultimately depends on several factors such as what type of charger you are using and what temperature your batteries have been stored at.

By following these guidelines and understanding how long it takes for your specific model of RC car’s battery to charge fully, you can rest assured that your Megalodon Monster Truck will be ready for action when you need it most!


When properly charged with an appropriate charger and stored in optimal temperatures, it typically takes 15 minutes up to an hour or more for the Megalodon Monster Truck’s rechargeable NiCd battery to reach full capacity.
