Default Charging setups/recommendations

Hey all. Looking to get back into electric, it's been a while so looking for advice. What charging stations/setups, power supplies, etc, would you all recommend. I'd like a multi-port charger of course with some good charging speed. Thank you.

Junsi iCharger i406 is a popular choice. I use their 1200W power supply, but any good power supply of that wattage should have plenty of power on tap for your needs

with no expense spared its commonly agreed that the best charger is a icharger 406 duo. A typical 12volt server power supply would be fine if you just charging 2s lipo batteries

I just picked up the iCharger 406 Duo and so far itís been great. Mine needed a firmware update to get the LiHV option but was super easy with a Windows computer.

I can charge 2 x 2S lipo no problem from a midrange PSU or 12V leisure battery.

Another vote for icharger 406 duo
does it all, and itís fast with a proper power supply.
easy to navigate once you use it a few times.

Canít say anything bad about the 406. I sold mine only because Iím not racing stock and the X6 was a much smaller package and I can still charge how I like.

I like dual x6. if one goes bad you replace it. Ive got a 406 that half of it is dead. ive replaced all the transistors 3 times. Its beyond me and I wish I had another x6.
