Can anyone in Australia recommend a transformer to use with the 120v AC version?

Also can anyone confirm how many watts it requires or how many amps it draws?

It's the deuce 2.

There is a 50 watt transformer at the local hobby shop I'm just not sure if that's enough..

Thanks!

Best idea is to pick up a replacement element from A-Main. Be either the element itself or where the wires enter the element. Be careful not to pull the heater off the cooling head by the wires. These units are generally really reliable and carry on happily heating for a couple of years easy.

W=VA
V=IR

Can anyone clamp the wires to see how many amps this thing pulls? Or use a meter to measure how much resistance the coil has? Then it's simple math to find out how many watts it pulls.

I believe the battery warmers I sell are only 50 watts. So I'd imagine that 50 should do, but not sure.

No. A fully charged 3s is 12.6V and works just fine. I have used and seen 16-17V (4s) just fine as well. But I have also seen them go up in glorious flames at 20V


Keep it below 15ish just to be on the safe side.
