HELP I'm looking to buy a "DC 12V Regulated Switching Power Supply" on ebay and the charger specs reads "Capable of handling up to 250W or 10A charge rates" and I have a choice of Power Supply 5A-60W, 10A-120W, 15A-180W, 20A-240W, 30A-360W, 50A-600W. Would the best one be 10A-120W or 20A-240W or ??? HELP
The only difference with the supplied USB cable is that there is no continuity between the outer metal on the plugs which could cause a ground loop.
I have tested the supplied iCharger USB cable and a mini USB Nokia cable and they both don't have continuity between the outer metal. However, on a few other mini USB cables there were continuity between the metal case on the plug.
WOW... One of the best chargers that I have seen. It came with the firmware: 3.12c which i upgraded to 3.13b this is a pretty simple and a sweet charger. I have gone through all the menus, however could not find the menu for regenerative discharing. Maybe it appears only when powered through a rechargable source.There was no manual with the system, so you need to download it from the internet or from the provided CD.
Overall I would rate the charger 5plus as the balancing was accurate. However I had to calibrate my charger with my digital multimeter. Calibration is simple: 1.) Power OFF the charger. 2.) Hold all the buttons and power on 3.) Release the buttons after hearing the 4 beeps while powering on. 4.) Hold the stop button for 3 sec to enter into voltage monitor mode. 5.) press and hold the dec, inc, and start button to enter into calibration mode.

Excellent charger. Very intuitive, easy to use, although it cant charge more than one battery at a time, its much more versatile. The Logview program is a VERY useful addition if you really care about your batteries. Ive been running it monitoring the discharge characteristics of my LiPo batteries and it shows you what is really happening with each of the cells individually. Doing this on a regular basis will enable you to predict impending batte
Big power in small size. Balancing is one of the best in class with excellect accuracy. Powerfull charger with many extra features. Resistance check is great for checking health of batteries. Will charge any type battery you have, lead-acid to li-ion. Charges my 6s 2200mah 40c battery in 14 minutes from a car battery. Only need 2 packs to fly all day! Could get away with 1 pack at most fields becuse you have to wait to fly.
