    I personally don’t own one but have heard great things from others. I hear the sound is amazing but don’t look for it to charge the batteries quickly. It takes several hours to charge a 5.0 amp battery.

    Nice to know. I still don’t know anyone with one, and haven’t even seen one in any stores around here yet, but I get bored fast waiting for a battery to charge. So if it really does take a long time to charge up a 5.0 it might be slowly drifting off my radar.

    I can’t give you an exact time to charge but the guy I know who has one said he stopped checking on the battery after waiting for 1 1/2 hours.

    That doesn’t sound good.

    I think that is one downfall to these bigger AH batteries. Can you imagine what a 6ah battery takes to charge on a regular charger??!!

    Have you guys ever tried charging a 4ah on the pb360 it takes forever. I cant remeber the last time I used it to charge.

    do you have a regular charger and a speed charger? maybe you can time it and do a little race.

    The PB360 is not a very efficient charger. It has the ability to charge to by no means is it the fast charger.

    It really sucks actually. The whole point is to have an all in one solution. Hopefully it will be addressed in the L-boxx radio (when/if they ever build one!)

    I still like the PB360 over all, but a L-boxx version with dual fast chargers would be SWEET.

    I have 2 quick chargers, a regular charger and the radio, the last time I charged something on the radio it was at least 3 hours

    Wow, I never noticed things taking that long to charge on radios before. But I’ve really never relied solely on my radio to charge, I’ve always still had a second charger going at the same time.

    Now your talking Brad an L-Boxx radio with a true fast charger. Of course with the PB360 sound too.

    wow that is significantly longer. I don’t ever recall it taking more than 45 mins to charge my 18v’s. You would think since this is a top tier radio plus charging station they would want to keep the quality and standard high

    this is still on my want list. I have a whole pile of 20v chargers so I’m not too worried about whether or not it charges fast. I’d be more inclined to run it off of a battery rather than have it charge one.
