Hi all.

I am still waiting for my ESC to arrive from Revolution Model. While waiting, I like to start charging the TP 10S2P. What sources of power supply you use to charge the pack at home and at the fly field? My charger is the Orbit Prolander.

Thanks
Duc

Here are some sugestions:
http://www.runryder.com/helicopter/t163318p1/

The one I ended up buying: (you can hook up even 2 Schulze chargers at one time without any problems.
I suggest the Diamond GZV 4000. It's relatively small, light and will hold 40 amps continuous. And, it's only $169.99 here R&L

This is the best power supply I have ever owned. It supplies very CLEAN power and is very reliable. If HAM operators trust their $8000.00 rigs with it, it works. On the other hand, Pyramid stuff is made for DJ's.
Thanks for the recommendation! Because of your post I went ahead and ordered one. Just got it a few days ago and works like a charm. (I use it with Schulze 330 to charge my TP 10S2P packs.) The whole unit has a very good quality feel to it! A very good buy IMO!

It even has 3 outputs. 6A, 10A (cigarette lighter socket) and 40A.

Thanks Dnam, I will put in an order for one today. The one from the UK is designed for oversea guys. It won't work with the US 120V/60Hz

Thanks

It is supposed to be cleaner power with no fluctuations. I had some power supplies that the Schulze didn't want to work with, but with this one it works flawlessly without a hickup.

Dnam, thanks for the suggestion. I got mine order out of Hamcity.com in California. The one in Ohio is 4 weeks out. What amps setting did you initially charge your TP pack with?

Thanks Again.

Duc, the first 4 charges on the TP only go with 1/2 C charge
So if there 4000 ma packs charge at 2.0 amps
