Default Porterhouse Motorsports Chargers and Leads

Figured I would start off here. I wanted to start by adding some pics of the charge leads that I have and have been selling.

I bought some of these in Nashville at the southern nats to use with my icharger and they are great. So much easier then having to use the balance boards that come with the 308. Well worth the money.

These cables are awesome! I ordered some blue ones after I saw them at the Southern Nats. They make it so much easier to charge batteries in and out of the car.

Are these available with 5mm bullets for the battery side? If so I would like to place an order.

Checked out your site and went ahead and ordered a lead!

I have a few of these leads for my chargers and they are well made. Soldering is solid!

Thank you for supporting the process. Mackie I'm curious to know your thoughts on the 5mm one with the length. I thought it was great when I charged my batteries on the shelf above. Curiuos on your thoughts.

Next order I will be getting some shorter leads as well. Since many of you have asked for something shorter.

Man I've been using it for a few days and it's great! I used to make my own, but always had issues with the negative and positive parts of the balance lead failing, but with yours I have no doubts it will be perfect with the higher quality wire you're using. I was unsure how I would like the charge leads coming out of the charger at a 90 degree angle, but I actually prefer it now! I definitely could have gotten a shorter lead and been fine, but the extra length never hurt anyone!!

I don't know how I survived before I got my Porterhouse charger leads!
They make charging sooooo much easier.

So I got both the standard length leads and extra long leads so I could charge my 12th scale in a lipo bag big enough to put the whole car in. AWESOME! And just because I am an OCD tech nerd, I ohmed out the leads I was using and compared those numbers to the new leads. Almost HALF the resistance! And to top it off I also ordered his battery charger. I had batteries that I thought were bad because they would cut off before 8.4 volts, and even added voltage to my charger to try and compensate. My newer batteries charged right to 8.4 exactly, and I charged the ones I thought were bad. Again, 8.4v. So I am one happy customer. Plus the fact that the charger has a USB port to plug my phone in, which isn't anything new to some chargers but I never had it before, and an extra port to hook my pit light to, GXF charger, etc. I am so pleased with everything I added this business to my signature to hopefully spark more interest. Great products Nolan... Let me know when the single charger comes in.

I was thinking of expanding colors to Red, Yellow, Green, and Orange as a staple. Any thoughts? Colors you would like to see?

Just as this past year. Pink will only be available for a short period of time once a year. I will be sponsoring a breast cancer awareness race again where every penny of the pink leads will be going directly to charity. This past year was a race in Streamwood IL. I would like to keep it this way.
