Seen my “Rack”? Charging Station Galore.

Too much stuff! Trying to stay organized with my Battery chargers, I decided to do an extreme makeover my 12 Volt Rack. The first one, was designed by me and Published in Model Aviation Magazine in Sept, 1993, when RC electrics were just being born. Today’s 12 Volt rack can be easily transported to the field and can be plugged into the car cigar lighter too. Lots of folks ask me where to get chargers, etc. I got my Triton from Great Planes Mfg and most of the others from Nitroplanes and Xheli. One of the best chargers does 2-5 cells, with balancing, for only . It is called the 3E Model SmartPlus LPC-1080 Lithium Polymer LiPo Battery Charger. Here’s a link for them, so you can find the proper charger for your machines. Just type chargers into the search when you get there. Happy flying, good luck, and be safe. Dave

  5. Yep, that is how I do my 12v chargers. I have 12v car battery connected to the chargers and an automatic (Die Hard Charger $29 at Kmart) 12v car charger hooked to the 12v battery. It works great. Good luck.
