A friendly reminder...
« on: September 02, 2018, 06:18:07 PM »


Just had the first issue I've ever had with charging a battery, and funnily enough it wasn't with a lipo... Always watch your batteries folks!

OOOERRRR!
I bought a new charger a couple weeks ago but it never came with a mains power pack, just a plug with two car battery clips on it.
Anyway got around to thinking I would give the NIMHs a charge  (its a multi type charger) read the instructions on how to select NIMH and not LIPO or lead acid or NiCd, then went through mt stash of mains power packs to find one to fit the charger -hmmm not one to fit. So re-read the instructions, it needs a mains psu between 12 and 18volts but heres the clanger, at least 6amp output :o :o Checked Ebay and to get such a high amperage they cost a fortune, so it looks like attaching to the car battery for now.

You don't need to spend a fortune to get a power supply to give this voltage or currrent. Here's onehttps://hobbyking.com/en_us/turnigy-reaktor-pro-350w-23a-power-supply-100-240v-ac-uk-plug.htmlwhich give more current than you need.
