Default Thunder AC6 Charger question

I am trying to figure out how to connect this to a 12v car or marine battery for remote rc racing where electricity isnt available. Anyone have any pictures on how its done?

Before you read further, CONFIRM WITH YOUR MANUAL FIRST BEFORE TRYING ANYTHING!

from what I can tell based on the pics of the charger and what is included, there appears to be some sort of power port next to where the AC wire plugs in, correct?

That appears to be where you would run that one cable that has the banana plugs on it into a DC based power source like a power supply unit.

Now, since you want to hook to a marine battery, you would need clamps that the banana plugs would plug into, or just make a jumper of sorts that will plug into the banana plugs and have the clamps attached to that.

Again, CONFIRM WITH YOUR MANUAL!

The charger should have a set of battery clips and a cord with banana plugs at one end and a DC power plug on the end that goes too the DC power input on the side of the charger in the box .

The banana plugs go into the ends of the battery clips .Red wire too red clip goes on the + side , black wire too black clip too the - side of the battery .

here is a better pic I found than what I was looking at:



So you should be able to make the connection using those clamps.

There is an output on the left side of the charger, Jurt to the right of the AC cord, also included in the box should be a lead with a connector just for that single hole with the aligator clips on the other end.

Ur good to go

But like Cain said,

read the manual!

second wire from the top on the right side of the charger plug into the big battery clips then plug into the left side of the charger. Hook up to your battery, you're done. The banana plugs fit right into the battery clips. Look at the left side of the clips. Self explanatory.
