Default New Yokomo charger?

I'm in the market for a second charger, has anyone seen this charger by Yokomo? Are they even out yet?



It looks like it has 30 amp discharge too.

I have a feeling it is custom made, but I didn't know it was avalible to buy. If it is only $600, I'd have one in a heartbeat. That thing looks like it's worth over a grand.

Default YZ-BCSD ???

Can someone tell me if the YZ-BCSD can charge both battery packs at 9.9 AMPS at the same time? I'm looking at getting this charger and like it's ability to charge two packs at the same time. I just need to know if it will do what I need it to do.

Also does it have a timer feature like the LRP Pulsar does? meaning you can tell it to automatically start charging in X Min. I use this feature all the time.

Thanks.

Yes, you can charge 2 different packs @ 9 amps each at the same time (as long as your PS can handle the draw).

No, there isn't a timed charge built in.

Overall it is an excellent charger.

Actually there is a charge timer countdown function in the BCS-D. It tells you how to use it in the instructions.

Sorry, you are correct, I guess that big 'Timer/Reset' button staring at me never really kicked in! (as you can tell I have never used that feature, lol). I only used that button to reset before re-peaking...

I wonder if this new charger is made by the same people that make the Integy chargers? The case looks the same size and the specs are the same as well.

Thanks guys for the confirmations.

I guess I could have read the manual but I didn't realize Yokomo had it online. Here's the link.

So the ones that have this, do you have any complaints? Have you got any other chargers to compare it too?
