    I have 4 stock P1 batteries & 2 walkera 5200

    Charging one by one is becoming very difficult.

    Plz suggest a charger that can charge more than one
    battery at a time.

    Or a few that i can choose from.

    Thx

    I like the idea of teaching a man to fish instead of giving him a fish.

    but today I just need a fish.

    A few links would be sufficient. Thx guys

    You need a charger with a "paraboard" or parallel charging board. Google something like "lipo paraboard" and you should find a million links.

    I can charge 6 batteries at once with mine (they need to be the same model).

    Anything I can buy retail?

    I'm willing to buy a power supply unit if necessary.

    It's like I'm talking in a foreign langauge...

    I would like a ready to use retail charger.

    No DIY.

    Like RTF, but RTCharge instead :D

    Not sure what more you are looking for. I have a lipo charger in which I plug in the paraboard. I plug in up to 6 batteries (all the same) and charge them all at the same time. Pretty much RTC.

    It is not AC mains powered so don't forget the 12 or 24 vDc power supply.

    Hi,

    I have this charger. It can charge 4 batteries in 30 mins. I love it. I don't know where you are located but this company in located just outside of Vancouver and they ship to the states. The price is in Canadian dollars so it will be slightly less in U.S. dollars.

    Here it is: https://www.flyingcameras.ca/store/shut ... arger.html

    No catch. That charger is actually Flying Cameras own design. You can only buy it from them. Give them a shout and talk to them. There is a toll free number. They will be more then happy to answer any of your questions. In comes in a nice aluminum case...its well designed. I love it.
