| RC models. Not automobiles or motorcycles!
My flight box has a 12v gel cell battery. That's R/C related, isn't
I've got a R/C boat that is powered by a 12v gel cell battery too.
Weight isn't so important on a boat, so gel cell batteries are seen
there, though they are rare.
I have a plane that takes a 4 cell LiPo pack. Your charger won't
charge that either, unless I charge it via the cell balancing ports,
which would take four times as long.
That same plane can also be powered by a 12 cell NiCd pack, and your
charger can't charge that either, unless it can be broken up into two
six cell packs (and then it could charge them seperately, taking twice
| I think you know what I was referring too.
Yes, I did. It's just that EVERY really just means MOST.
| So why so techinical???
Because I'd hate for somebody to take your statement at face value and
buy the charger based on that and find that it cannot do what they
needed it to do.

Not a very effective way of dealing with some constructive criticism.
Don't take my correction as a personal attack -- it wasn't intended as
such. It's just that what you said wasn't quite right.
