Actually the charge time for 200x battery is the same both with qc330 and qc500 chargerYes, for pruning - cut, move, cut, move cut......way better.
Make sure you try the 200x battery sometime if you don't also have that - faster cut times. Also 500 charger - faster charge times.
Sounds like you have your mind made up, but I find my t540i has equivalent power to 200t and battery lasts as long as a tank of gas would. If you can do it with a tank in the 200t, you can do it with a t540i on the small battery. They make bigger ones also. I have the preceding electric saw from husky and it's nowhere near the t540i. Seems to me you could have at least brushed that tree out. Probably lose power shortly into the chunk stage. Same as your gas saw.Soooo fully believe electric saws are the future and want them to be 'as good as a 200/201' but I have a hard time believing they are anywhere close for my usage at this point. When I bought my 2511T... a year or two ago, it was cheaper, lighter and more powerful than any of the battery saws at the time from what I understood.
Yesterday I took down a 120' doug fir, limbs and trunk to nearly 20" diameter all with less than a tank on my 201 (fell the rest of the stick with a 661). I could be mistaken, but I don't think battery saws are the killer removal saws I need just yet:

I want to try the t540i. I really like my 536. I kinda compare it to a 192. An electric version of a 200t would be great to have as well. I'm afraid if I try one, I'll have to buy it.You'll be surprised when you use a T540i. I have two of the 536LiXP that show no signs of dying. But, they are painful to use after the T540i.
