It will take about an hour, less first charge as it will have a partial charge.
I have no idea as I don't who makes the esc or have any experience with it, probably a perfectly fine brushed esc.
The lipo alarm plugs into the balance plug on the battery.

Ok so all the stuff arived and i charged the batt and squeeeeeezed in the batt in the batt compartment and OMG the power of that batt is AMAZING compared to the old nicd i was running. I might even buy another batt. It goes about 40-50kmph and it used to go about 25 to 30kmph and the acceleration. WOOOW. Its epic. Charge times sre about 40-50 mins depending on how discharged it is, and run times are about 30-35mins. Thanks so much, im very pleased with my stuff.
Jack

I wanted to post a quick little follow up for this thread to hopefully cut down on some reading time and so that people can see what was being discussed rather than have to leave the forum and search all day. Anyways, this is a Universal Charger, which is very affordable and I'd recommend for anyone to use running electric RCs. It has been a HUGE time saver for me, and I feel better about the way my batteries are charged now. There are Way more expensive chargers than this one, but you've gotta start somewhere! Below is the link to a useful video that may help.

Default Packs and power supplies.

I've been using ProTek products for a couple of years now. Great stuff. This year I've used three ProTek 100c's with deans plugs and charging them with the ProTek Super Pro 1000 Worlds Edition Power Supply and have had zero problems..
