Does that generator have 12V outputs or are you also using a power supply?

Finally got my box done! :D MY TP solution!!!

Allright well with my PWR box jealousy, I used friends rotorg idea and made me a Pelican box. Tons of wiring on the balancer end I was not able to make look any nicer but hey it is very functional and can charge from 1-10S in a jiffy!


1-Pelican Model #1600 Case
4-TP1010 Chargers
4-TP210 Balancers
DIY power junction box
Iota Engineering 75AMP Power Supply
1 - 2Speed fan function switch

Made it so you can move 2 speed fan where ever you like on edges as it has a srong spring clamp, this is great as it sits out of way of lipo charge area, the fan also will on its own move back side to side as well to cover all components! And if it's cool enough out I can leave the fan home and lose the weight as well.

Made a cf plate and stuck to inside cover to hold all my adaptors. I can goto any funfly this season, offer for someone to try, fly my packs and vice versa, so I am good to go on all accounts for multiple ends as well.

The board all is on is 3/8 Particle Board, something lighter I suppose could have been used. Underneath the board is 3/4 inch foam, so no wires, data cables etc which I routed all underneath feel any pressure and nothing will get kinked or harmed.

No sitting around much waiting for packs to be ready on this setup, that's for sure.

I guess I'm lucky we have a/c power in the pits to run our power supply's. When I'm just out someplace else I use my jeep battery. So far so good.

That's all fine and good until you start charging two or three 10S packs all day and your Jeep doesn't start when its time to go.

hmmm

I like the little honda 2000 W generator and the 1000w power supply option. Looks like a good combo.


Is my math correct here?

42V *5A=210W at 1c
+any additional for charger and balancer grabbed as well ie heat loss.

1000W seems enough only if you run two 10s packs at 2.5c 'ish'(525W per).


what is the time diffrence between 3c to 5c charging.

what is the time diffrence between 3c to 5c charging.
5c is 12min full charge from empty.
3c is 20min full charge from enpty.

Hoever, it is the last 5-10% that typically take 10-20min to complete at 0.5c or less in CV mode. If you use quick charge to 90% mode, you will see significant reduction in charge times.

This set up is capable of charging four 10s packs at 5 amp each which is max output of charger. It is a load for the iota 75 watt power supply but it is capable.

Here it is It has two power sources....120V and 12V. On one side it has the dual 4AWG inputs for the battery in my car (the car has the other side) and the other has a 120V plug that will run the power supply inside the case. I got the power supply, 1010/210 and all power distribution installed nicely. I also added a fuse to the power supply (+) wire so that I can take it out of the loop when I am using the 12 volt side (no feedback to the power supply)..........Ron
