DC only. That level of output will be very hard to implement a built in power supply in that small of a package.

Hmm.. Chargers are finally starting to catch up a little bit to the new batteries...

Finally I can charge my packs at 1/3 of their rated max charge rate! LOL

I'll put this on the list for next season... 10A is starting to seem slow. hah.

BTW, I don't think this is the most powerful dual port on the Market. I am pretty sure, at 500 watts a port, the Hyperion Duo 3, which, BTW, also does SYNC charging is more powerful...But, of course, I am not an expert in RC and failed math so 400 watts might be more powerful than 500 watts.

Sweet! I just meant that there's more out there than the big crazy Thunder Power one, which is all I've really seen. I'm not very good at keeping up with this stuff sometimes.

Hey Eric....I wasn't referring to you. Our days of head butting are over, LOL...



I was talking about the HITEC press release in the Lead in post from Chilly...


But regardless, glad I could help.

Man, I wish Novak would build a new charger, LOL...

I was looking at the Sky Website....There does not appear to be a Mini USB for firmware updates...NOR a standard USB for charging cell phones...

Both of which should be standard on any charger over 50 bucks today...


I don't get it sometimes......


Is there ANYONE who works at these RC companys who actually use a product for a given RC application...ot at the very least, peruses the competition to get ideas?


This no thought cloning is ruining this country...

Got'cha. I'm still excited chargers are getting stouter though. Maybe when I'm ready to buy something they'll be cheaper. Not that anything is really excessively expensive now. Just seems like things go down in price after a while in this industry.

Not only are they going down...but the wattage is going up too.
