I wonder why such a top end charger doesn't have AC/DC connections.

There are a few possible reasons, but the biggest one is that by moving the power transformer out of the charger, you reduce the chances of needing service by a large factor. Also, with a built in supply, chances are that the charger would get pretty hot, especially when charging/discharging at a high rate. I know my old Tekin 112C used to get smoking hot when cycling packs!

Not only that, but it would probably cost about $100 more to plop a ''decent'' power supply into the T-35 ( decent: ~10amps ) and most racers already have power supplies for thier other equipment anyways.

most of the charges that are AC/DC don't have very good power supplies in them. I would rather use a better external supply.

Is there anyway that you can make a face plate for my gfx to look like the stealth face with the flames and graphite look? LMK
