Extra Charger for Nicads??
Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Convert your Dewalt power tool charger so you can use it to charge your NICAD batteries.
This will work on all Dewalt chargers but I recommend you use an 18 volt charger model 9116 which was their standard charger or their latest charger (it's yellow).
These are PULSE chargers which are very good for NICADS.
NOTE: The yellow charger will also charge SUB C NIMH. DO NOT USE IT TO CHARGE LITHIUM ION PACKS.
The standard charger is rated for 7.2 to 18 volts.
In fact it will charge SUB C packs from 4.8 to 18 volts.
If my Triton is busy I use my Dewalt to charge my 14.4 volt starter pack or my SUB C flight pack.
This means you can charge 4.8 volt flight packs 12 and 14.4 volt nicad starter packs etc.
The adaptor allows you to use leads with banana plugs, spade connectors, pin connectors or simply wrap the wire around the post. Use aligator or other lips to connect to the battery.
CAUTION: IF YOU REVERSE THE POLARITY YOU WILL DESTROY YOUR DEWALT CHARGER.
You can easily make adaptors that are properly polarized for your battery packs.

Re: Battery adaptor $20
I like the "starter pack" idea instead of that cord that never seems to be long enough!
Maybe you could post a photo of your mount on your starter ????

Re: Battery adaptor $20
I don't use one right now. I sold mine to a friend.
When I do use one it is 2 car style 6 cell packs wired in series attached to the bottoom of the starter. Cut your cord even shorter. Attach a Deans Ultra female connector to the pack and the male to what's left of the cord from the starter.
I will post a photo of a starter with bats attached later.
I also make an adaptor for a Makita 14.4 volt battery.
You can have it attached to your starter cord.
The 14.4 volt bat is light enough to carry close to the plane and the starter doesn't have any extra weight.
The Makita adaptor is a modified Makita 9.6 volt flashlight. I cut the bottom off the flashlight which is modified further to make a polarized slide on connector to the starter battery. The starter wire is hooked up to the adaptor.
