Are my old batt chargers worth selling?

Have a nice sunpower 12V/30A supply and venom 6S balance charger but don't know about my old, 3-4yrs? EMC 400 chargers and an EMC 600 watt charger. They all have Anderson connectors, 1 for 15S 63.2V/5A, 1 for 18S 75.6/3.67A, and the 600 watt is to fast charge the 18S up to73.8V/6A. Then can be toppe...

Re: West Coast US Events

Missed 'ya Dave. I charged up a passle of 6S lipos and had 'em handy for you at Grange. You had best clomb on to those lipos soon, I started to chunk the $750 lipos into the dumpster at Grange but hesitated. The 10 lipo bricks have negative value to me, just taking up room in my smallish work shop. ...

Outstanding races; what impresses me most is the level of building innovation in the months beforehand. 1st, one must have a real 'electrical' background, then one must have a concept, dedicate himself to the concept, and lastly show up and prove their concept against others. Thanks (Jackson/Luke) f...

The 4 5S 8Ahr lipo bricks can power 12-15 racing laps but voltage would sag below 64V. Another 4 smaller 5Ahr bricks should keep the voltage up to 68volts to the checkered flag. The 4 5S 8Ahr lipos are in series for nominal 74V just as the smaller 4 5S 5Ahr lipo bricks are. The 2 series packs will b...
