Does anyone know where to find a banana plug distribution board (I'm just making up this name -- no idea what it's really called)? Basically it has a single set of male adapters that plug into the power supply and several female adapters allowing you to plug multiple chargers into a single power supply. I know they exist because I've seen these at the heli field, but I can't seem to find them online. I'm sure I'm just using the wrong search terms, but any links would be appreciated.

How many chargers do you want to run?

You can easily plug two sets of banana plugs into one power supply by using the cross-drilled hole in the posts. One plug in the end and one at 90 degrees.

If you want to get fancy, they make these which have both the red and black molded together, You can also "chain" them together so you wouldn't need the box.

If all you want is one more place to plug in a charger, how about just mounting one more set of jacks and wire them in behind the panel ?

Thanks guys. Beeflyer2, the one you linked is exactly the one I was looking for. Thanks! For those that asked, I want to plug in 3 chargers. I'm sure I probably could have rigged something together, but this seems so much cleaner.

The Tower offering is labeled Muchmore because it costs much more than the rcaccessory model.

Hey nice! Thanks beeflyer2. I like that "12V DC Power Strip" from RC Accessory. I run multiple chargers and other stuff, so this looks really good. Price is nice too.

Thanks,

I made my own for about $8 and 20 minutes of work. Here is how...

Just look up "binding post" on ebay and buy some banana jacks. Then get yourself a plastic "project box" from ebay as well. Most places that sell binding post also sell project boxes. Buy both from the same company and only pay one shipping fee. Total cost for 10 pairs of binding post and a project box, $8 shipped to my door!

Drill the holes in the top of the project box and then mount the binding posts. Hint, use a computer to make a template so your holes are evenly spaced. Tape the template to the top of the box and drill right through the paper...

Turn the box over and solder the posts together in parallel. Use heavey wire so heat does not build up in the wire. I also put an in-line fuse on the inside of mine for safety.

Screw the cover on the back of the box and your done.

Here is mine. You might also notice my volt meter that I double stick taped to the side. It's from I4C products. I didnt want to cut the wire shorter, so I just wrapped it around the box. -Steve

Sorry, I made this like 2 years ago. I have no idea which ebay seller I got the stuff from. As I recall, I got the plastic box for 99 cents and the 10 pairs of binding posts were a few dollars. The shipping was the most expensive thing at like 4 or 5 dollars. -Steve

Today, if you get the banana jacks, not the binding posts, you may come close to your price of days gone by.
