charging of Lipos too.
I'm trying to eliminate carrying TX cases and jump start batteries
(for charging at the field) combined with the chargers etc.. an all in
one solution (though in some cases where i'm in a hurry and not going
for long, i will probably just throw the TX in a single TX field case
with the batteries and go)..
Here are the two I've found:
The dimensions on tower hobbies are wrong and can be found here :
(22 by 9.5 by
(18.6 L, 9.1
W, 12 H)
It appears they both support 2 chargers.. but the Ultra tote is a bit
smaller (better in my case with a 2 door car and often a stroller in
the trunk plus a big 54" plane (in pieces)) or so i think.
I guess to really do 2 chargers with the electro tote I would need to
not use a power panel (which i have) and go for a TritonJr? IE: i
will now be using a lead acid 7ah battery for charging, but to charge
that battery I have a 600mah AC wall adapter with alligator/leads on
it.. those leads plug into the power panel and then charge the lead
battery if I'm right. But.. does the TritonJR have inputs to do
this.. it says it can charge lead batteries but I dont see how,
without those inputs? I only see outputs.
My current charger is a CellPro 4s.. it will charge the Lipos until i
replace the power panel with a Triton JR (?)..
The Electro tote offers a fan to cool the lipos while they charge (is
this really needed, vs making sure its ventilated)?
The ultra tote doesnt have a fan, but I should still be able to charge
the lipos in a compartment on the unit.
In either case.. I am going to line the lipo charging compartment with
ceramic tiles which should make things safe should they catch fire.
Any thoughts on charging of the lead batteries with a TritonJr vs
power panel and the need for a fan?
If the fan isnt really that important then I'm leaning towards the
smaller Ultra tote as of now :)
