Curiosity is starting to get the best of me now. I just started looking into the 20 amp plus chargers. So far I've found:

Icharger
Powerlab 6 or 8
Thunder power dual port

What else is out there that you guys know of? Also what is recommended? Thanks guys.

It charges at 30 per side max and 50 if you bridge both sides together in synchronous mode.

That looks tempting! I might pick one of those up if I can get it a little bit cheaper, around $230 range.

That's probably regenerative discharge where you hook it up to a car battery. It says in broken engrish "when you connect the external capacity resistance, you can use it as the maximum discharge power capacity".

Even then the Thunder is limited to 20 amp discharge as I read it.

No, your right. 30v/20a with regenerative discharge. 20a is insane anyway for a discharge rate.

My powerlab will do 40 or something but stand alone it will only discharge a 2s pack at a 8 amp rate. Never have bothered to discharge regenerative though.

Are you sure about that?

I discharge at 30 amps with no problems (one cell).
45 amps with two cell.
But I discharge by heat temperature.
The outside never gets hotter then 12 degrees above ambient temp before i charge.

I have a Venom battery that 2 years old and the IR is in the 2.3 mohm/cell.
No lie.

My powerlab's stats say it will discharge at 10a internal and 40a on regenerative discharge. Never tried regenerative to see though, 8a(ish) is fast enough.

No lie.
Interesting, mine are showing .6 per cell on the iCharger... and all I do is charge, or am I not under reading it correctly? The first time on the iCharger the IR came in around 3.8 per cell....

On the I charger I think 0.6 is 6.0
6 month old nano-techs read about 6 ohms.
