Re: LiPo, LIFe Charger

Personally, I think my next charger will be an icharger, probably the 3010B. 10S, 1000W. I don't use a whole lot of 6S batteries but next year I probably will and my older 1010C is only a 220w charger. That means that at 22.2v I can only charge at a max 10amps. For a 5000mah battery that is only 2C and with batteries which can be charged at 5C or my A123 cells which can be charged much faster, I'm going to be lengthen my charge time for no reason.

Re: LiPo, LIFe Charger

Hello Craig,
Thought I would chime in here as you know what I fly here in Sudbury. For indoor I have a Hextronik balance charger from Hobby King which charges through the balance connectors only with a max rate of 2amps. Will charge up to 4s but will charge 2, 2s batteries of the same size at once, such as we use for indoor flying. I also have an ICharger 1010B which I use for some middle size batteries and my Life transmitter batteries. My main charger is an ICharger 3010B which I use to parallel charge the 4s or 5s batteries used in series for the 25% planes. All have worked flawlessly. The 3010B needs an input at 24 volts to attain the 1000watt charge rate and the power supply was expensive but worth the price to charge the 4s 5000mah Nano Tech batteries in parallel at 5c. The most important thing is to determine your needs and buy a charger that will meet them so you don't have to upgrade right away. Don,t ask how I know. By the way, Gaston uses pretty much the same setups.

Very good price for a charger that will do a lot of different things. ( works on 110 volt or your 12 volt battery from your car ) I feel Jeff could answer any of your questions --- cant go wrong with thunderboltrc ---

Just my thoughts
