Default Hyperion Power sources

I have a bantam bc-6 charger and plan to upgrade to a hyperion. Either the duo3 or 7s charger. My bantam takes way to long to charge everything from my 2s to 6s. I need something faster.

What are you guys using for a power source for the hyperion's? Can you provide links?

The Hyperion Duo 3 will be the last charger you buy ever.....

It will charge anything and do two batteries WITH balancing at a time up to 6S.

Buy it at www.teamhelotes.com

The best price anywhere for Hyperion chargers and batteries.

I run my Hyp 0610iNet charger with a Radio Chack 25a supply or a ProPeak 20a PS, either one works well.

If you have to get a supply from Tower, the Team Checkpoint 25a supply is prob the best value for the money. There are others (Integy, Team MuchMore) but they are more expensive.

I have the Team Checkpoint that Duster listed. I like it, I mean how much hype can there be over a PS. They either work or they don't and this one does.

Ditto on the Team Checkpoint PS...
I run two Hyperion 720i's off it at 10 amps a piece for my bigger batteries and all performs great!
