Have the Eco Select model: 3 independent charging outputs (2 of 4-7 cell and 1 4to8 cells, charge/discharge & cycle) in a small package.

Hate to pay two times for the same piece of equipment so, buy the best I can afford from the start, expensive at short term, cheap at long term. I can simultaneously charge the 2 packs from the starter box and charge the Tx pack or Rx pack without a sweat. Very useful.... sometimes charge three Rx packs at the same time (one on each output).... lazy track friends who don't remember to go to the track with the packs charged or before a final.

Here's a photo of my charger

I am using this one


SUPERNOVA 250S Fast Cycler
Part Number: FC700




The SUPER NOVA is the most sophisticated battery conditioning system available today at a price one third that of competing products. SUPER NOVA can discharge and rapid charge from 1 to 25 cells from a +12VDC supply such as a car battery or your field box battery. SUPER NOVA is a microprocessor controlled cycler meant primarily for power packs used for power for electric cars, boats, and airplanes. The “super” feature is that the user can store the cycle parameters for up to 10 different battery packs in memory. Just select the memory location for the pack you want and all parameters are there and set without worrying whether you have them right. Function of SUPER NOVA describes the optimum technique used by competitive electric model operators for some time, but never before available in an affordable package. The user charges a pack at C/10 on his overnight system charger to equalize the cells. Before competing, SUPER NOVA then discharges the pack at a discharge rate programmed via the microprocessor to be from 0.5 to 3.0 amps. The discharge capacity is presented on an LCD display. At completion of discharge, SUPER NOVA rapid charges the pack at any rate programmed into the microprocessor between 0.1 and 5 amps until the pack reaches full charge and delta peak cutoff occurs. The unit automatically switches to trickle charge and maintains the peak charge on the pack until you need the pack.



Recommended Accessories: One 201BCB cable that is a 9", 2.5mm barrel cable to two bannana plugs; and a 501MC Versatile Adapter that will allow interface of most popular radio equipment via the above cable. PS2-12US to connect the FC700 to your AC wall outlet for use in your shop.

What about more kiSs than connecting your battery pack to the charger and let it to the charger determine everything? (up to the intensity discharge and change intensity) varying as the pack goes thru the charge or discharge cycle?

- Reverse polarity
- Peak Charger

i'm lost...granted they may be a lot simplier when sitting right in front of you but when they are talked about on here all the chargers seem really complicated.
