My ICharger 1010B+ finally arrived today.After checking the contents of the box I see no way of - Out of the box quickly charging the 2 Turnigy 5000mAh 5S 25C Lipo Packs I have.
There doesn't seem to be any way (through lack of proper leads) of charging up my batts until I make up some kind of charging lead Unless
I do something like this...?
and use the crocodile clips on the ends of the battery connections. Looks a bit dodgy!!
I think I may have to snip the croc clips off the Icharger leads and solder on a HXT 4mm Gold Connector....
so I can start charging up my batts. I'll solder another HXT 4mm gold connector onto the croc clips so I can quickly plug the croc clips back together should I ever need to use them.
I'll also need to make up a lead to connect my 2 batts in series.
This is the list of battery related stuff I have so far.
1 Icharger 101B+.
1 Propeak Power Supply 240>13.8v 20A Auto.
4 Meters of 12awg wire. 2 mtrs Red & 2 mtrs black.
2 Packs (20 in total) of HXT 4mm Gold Connectors.
Looks like my night will be spent doing some soldering
As I have never used one of these chargers before are there any tips - things I should look out for etc.
