The 16x5BL with 14amp power supply can be bought at www.stormerhobbies.com for $209.99! The 16x9 is also on there site, but I'm not sure how much it is. The 16x5BL, and 16x9 have the same exact features, but as you already know the 16x9 has the power supply built in, thats the only difference.
I chose the 16x5BL due to ease of transporting, and future use. I dont know about you, but we dont have 120v at my track, so my car battery gets the workout. A smaller charger is easy to stow away in one of my pit boxes. The power supply can run my lathe, another DC charger, or anything else DC for that matter. Also I say for future use (seperate power supply) because there are always new chargers, batteries, gizmos,a nd gadgets that can run off of it. I wont need to replace my whole chager the next time I upgrade to a future 16x1000, or whatever.

at stormerhobbies i think the 16x9 is 240$ so you could save 30$ and you would be able to run more things off of your ps, because on the 16x9 ps you can only run one thing at a time off of it.

The 16x9 can only run 1 thing off the PS at one time? How does that work? Can't you just use the built in PS output to run things like a fan, a lathe motor etc. Oh, can it run another charger off, if say I don't charge with the 16x9 charger, but I plug in another charger to the built in PS, can I charge at max rated output of the PS (14A or something)?

there is only one set of ports in the back of the charger that goes to the ps, so you can only run one thing off of it at a time when using ac and if you use dc to power the 16x9 you need to use the only pair of port to power it so you cant run anything additional when using dc. when using ac you can power a second charger. if using 7 amps on 16x9 you have 7 amps left for your second charger. so there is plenty to pwer a second charger, but to much power for a comm lathe. i was going to run my lathe off the back of my charger but a guy i race with said it would be to much for a good cut.

Integy sells a lathe motor designed for higher voltages:


Matrix Pro Lathe Motor 55T Single 7.2VDN.
SCM5501
Specifically designed for driving motor lathes, very low current draw, very low rpm when using 6 cell pack, works really good with diamond cutting bit and lower the chance of diamond bit breakage

I think it can work well at 12V, not too fast.

Check out the Novak race pics, of the team drivers cars. Notice a few integy chargers in the background? Hey, if top drivers are using them, why not have one?

Chris Tosolini & Paul Wynn both use 16X5. Congratulation on their outstanding performance. Also, Baker said these chargers never false peak and make your pack run stronger than the Novak Millennium.

peak detect lockout - this is when the charger "ignores" voltage differences when charging. a battery's voltage drops a certain value when it peaks. sometimes, the voltage fluctuates after a few minutes and this leads to false peaks because the charger "thinks" that the battery has already peaked due to the drop in voltage. this usually happens to older batteries or when the charger has a very low peak detect setting. peak detect lockout occurs during the first few minutes of a charge (the T35 has a 10 minute peak lockout) and then goes back to regular peak detect once the battery voltage has stabilized.
