Let's see your portable charging boxes

So i'm just about to jump in and make a portable charging station out of an old Align 450 case I have. Been thinking about the layout for a while now and think i've figured out how I want everything. Before I commit I thought it'd be fun to see what every one else has come up with for their solution. Maybe some of you guys have some slick solutions for mounting or layout that I had never even considered. So let's see some pics of your portable charging stations!

You STILL need a charger

OP:

I need to get a portable one also as I have to put it all together at the field. Kinda nice having a plug and play setup

Better yet, get a gasser with a Jewel generator, no chargers or extra batteries needed, put a lipo in the TX and fly all day

Wow, didn't take long for this to degrade into a nitro, gas, vs electric thread.

Bravo guys. Must be winter

the B6 is rated 50W, so it must be taking a full day to charge those big packs- LOL

It's easy to find an excuse to do wrong. Hard is not to find an excuse to do right.

Im really happy with this charger.Takes about 15mins to charge my 3 cell and its balances really good.I charged a 3 cell for my Trex 450 about 8 times and a 2 cell for my Duratrax Vendetta ST18 about 4 times useing that 12V starter battery and its still going strong.Not too shabby for a $16.00 dollar starter battery and a $38.00 dollar charger but I think a 6cell lipo would drain the 12V battery haha.

wish i had a pic

A guy at my field has 2 marine 12 volt batterys tied togeather with a honda generator to keep them hot. Thick gage wire hooked up to a couple of copper pipes (+ and - )with holes drilled into them so multiple chargers can be hooked up at the same time.
Don`t remember the math but he can most like handle 10 or so 5000 packs charging at the same time.
He charges like 5 buck to anyone who wants to hookup for all day.
Beats a dead battery on your car if your a heavy electric user.

Pretty funny Fil. After seeing you're case I've been thinking of making something up out of my old Align case.

It should look a lot different the next time you see it. Just added a Hyperion 615duo to go with the 1010 and the Bantam. I think i've got the layout I want to go with, now I just need to figure out the best material to use for a raised shelf section. I'm thinking some sort of stiff plastic that I can form to keep it rigid but light.

sacramento, ca, u.s.

i got a cheapo-chinese 28amp PS from ebay, and wedged it in there with some bananas out the front, and a p.c. cable port on the side. not much room for layout after i got it wedged in there. but, i can fit one of my bantam BC-8s next to it with all the necessary cables tucked under the charger.

if it ain't broke, break it.
