I love all the critics who aren't even interested in buying one

Nolan, do these come with charge leads/balance leads?

It comes with balancing boards, Charge leads, and temp sensors. You will need to create a balancing lead. Looking into this tonight on cost.

I was interested in the brand about a year ago when I read about them on this thread. To be honest, a lot has changed since then.

While you may not be able to get a more versatile AC/DC charger, you CAN get a fairly powerful power supply (www.feathermerchantrc.com) and a DC only charger that will do an excellent job of charging. So, (from feathermerchant) a 24 volt, 47amp PS + This Hyperion dual charger: http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...er-7S-20A-500W would yield you a very powerful setup. Not as compact as the Elangears, but more powerful.

I'm sure Elangears is an excellent charger, I would just like to know what exactly makes it better. Nolan, maybe some more explanation on their "smart charging" technology and how that compares to the PowerLab, and Ichargers.

I'm not sure compared to the power lab or I chargers. I will have to research and get back to you. What charger are you currently using now?

Yes, tire warmers could be powered through the third port. In the video they have another charger plugged in starting to charge 15amps with no problems.

as promised.. more pictures..

ElanR X2 charging at full capacity while a tire warmer (which is heating up) and a pit light is connected. One of the features that it can offer.







Thanks,
Ryan

So after reading Icharger and PowerLabs does not have a "Smart Charge" feature. They just have a steady current not mutliple stages of charging.

Elangears burts at high amps, then Pulses, then Steps down the power to condition the battery.
