Default YOKOMO Chargers

Does anyone have any (personal) experience with these chargers?

Please, all info on these chargers is welcome.

Thanks you all.


Regards,

I use the Yokomo BMS Double charger and have had no problems with it. It gives you the option of peak detect or thermal charging and it has a backlit display.

Mo,

How does it compare to other chargers out there.
I understood it also has some kind of auto charge (called Yokomocharge)?
How does that one work?

What is the max amp setting?

Do you have more power with this charger?

I haven't used the Yokomo charge mode much, but I didn't notice a difference when I used it. I believe the max amp setting is 9.9 amps. With the same amp settings, no charger is going to give you more power than another unless you peak detect is set wrong or ther is a problem with the charger and it is not fully charging the batteries. I have used many chargers by Novak, CE, Tekin, Yokomo, Integy, LRP and none of them made the batteries any faster. Just get any quality brand charger (CE, Yokomo, Novak, LRP, Integy) with the features you want and you will be just fine. The main reason I got the Yokomo BMS Double is because it charges two batteries at once and it's the same size as most single chargers.

Default YOKOMO Chargers

I saw some last year at a few races and they looked nice. Are they being imported now?
