Go for the iCharger if you are doing RC Charger, dont skimp on the charging amps. Like the $20 iMax 6S charger takes a long time.

iCharger - http://www.buddyrc.com/charging-systems ... arger.html
I'd go with this one if I wanted to save a bit

or this one is the best one to get
http://www.buddyrc.com/icharger-4010-duo.html
then there are these

or

You'd want 8S or 10S, skip the 6S.


Justin at www.ebikes.ca sells a good Satiator charger, doesnt do balancing

Out of the box charging, Meanwell HRP are good.

You might have to put two in series to get your voltage which you can adjust, but you can not adjust the amps. If you have a 10Ah pack, best to get a 10A unit. Series you add the voltage and the current stays the same.

The option for 80-90-100% charge settings model is the one I would get for a decent inexpensive charger.
Yuba Mundo w/BBSHD
Specialized Hard Rock w/9c clone, statoraid, hubsink
Trek Fuel 90 w/BBSHD
Above all run on 14s4p 52v li-ion
Ecobike folder 36v
Currie Flyer scooter 24v on 24ah of SLA

Every trip made with electric bike is one less car trip, saves money, no toxic fumes, less noise, less impact on roads.

I couldn't be happier now that I have a revoletrix gt1000duo. Massive out put power so you need some massive server power supplies to feed it.

Take a look at the Meanwell HLG's in the classified section. Great deal @ 35.00 shipped. Quality should be commercial quality vs. the average plastic or kingpan charger.

If I had to do it all over again I'd spend the money and get the goods...
