    Greetings all, I'd like a new charger for my FC40 batts. I have 2 of the BC20-4 single chargers.

    Now I want a balance charger with it all.

    >Dual batteries at once
    >AC/DC
    >Fast charge
    >Digital monitoring
    >Easy to use program
    >Comes ready to run FC40 type battery connections would be great.

    Lots of choices out there, but what do you think?

    I’m an iCharger fan but some of your “requirements” with the use pattern isn’t how most RC Balance chargers are designed to be used.

    I like using an external power supply because I can either charge off a car battery and/or bring a large standalone 12VDC battery to power the charger in the field.

    Fast charge would be no problem for an iCharger 106B+. Easy to program, got it. Even spit stuff out to a computer if you wish?

    Battery connectors? Uh, just make whatever dongle you need for your chosen connector ecosystem.

    Same deal with charging more than one brick at a time. Make a parallel dongle and buy some para-boards, but TBH, charging single 2.2Ah bricks at 7.5A fills ‘em pretty **** fast…

    If you’re dead set on charging 2qty at a time go for larger RC Charger but it’s really not needed for 2-5Ah bricks.

    Dunno your location so can’t recommend a seller either…
