No $h!t... I only use 2S packs so my HiTec X4 Plus is fine for me. I can't justify $350 for a charger that only does 2 batts. I also don't feel the need to push the limits of my equipment as I am strictly a hobbyist and race for fun. I don't feel the need to use every trick in the book to win. I'm happy right now if I can get around the track without spinning out or crashing!

With the right board, the iCharger could do something like 7 2S packs at 10A each, simultaneously. Just because it's 2 channel doesn't mean it's only a dual charger. It doesn't take much to make 3 2S packs look like 1 6S pack.

Point taken. It's still a lot of money for my use. Is it an awesome charger? Well, YEA. It just isn't in the cards for me right now.

Yeeeeeouch! I have 2 of those damn things in my drawers now.

You havent seen the pitlight. In retrospect, I could have disassembled one of the MuchMore lights and shared it with Adam. But I liked watching him struggle to get runtime out of lipo-powered pit light. If he had EA-like skills, he would have connected that light to his iCharger, pumped in 40A of whizbang and really lit the place up.

My illness for high-end charging still continues!

I keep waiting for your April fools - 40A is not my charge rate declaration.

LOL. The I-charger is an awesome charger for the 350.00. A few places have it at 330.00. It discharges and gives a live IR plot too as your charging and discharging. Plus its half the size of a GFX.

There was no april fools joke involved. LOL

That light is dialed.

The pack in the pit light had an IR of over 300. I wonder how 40A would have worked out? I was ready to end it all by Saturday.

The Lipo burning Horsham to the ground would have put off a lot more light then the light itself. Something to consider next time!

Maybe future versions will have a XBox styling instead the Nintendo looks.
