Buy a Triton. You can't go wrong. It charges Nicad's, NiMh and Li-Pol batteries were as the Nova charges Nicads and NiMh. The Triton can also be programmed to do multiple cycle-charges cycles automatically.

Charger

The Sirius pro-plus ($139.99) from heliproz will charge a transmitter and receiver. The pro series will work for lower capacity batteries as well. I have been using the pro series for 4 years without regret.

HELIFLYER1,

The sirius chargers are not programable and are designed to charge as well as condition radio packs. They are peak predictor chargers and do not overcharge packs as delta peak types. No need to cycle packs with these chargers. The pro plus will charge higher capacity batteries in the same way. As with all FF chargers, I would not use them to form/condition new packs. The wall wart is good for forming new cell packs for the a couple of cycles.

I would invest in this charger for radio packs and the triton or supernova for all other of the various types of packs.

Regards,


George

SuperNova 250S

But will take a closer look a Kinghippos Triton as soon as he gets it.
Dont have any Li cells so no need for changing due to that, SuperNova works great!

Lithium batteries are the way of the future so make sure it has that capability. You don’t want to purchase a charger that is already obsolete.

I have a Triton and it is fairly good.

I had a Supernova 250s and had nothing but problems with it. It would not peak out it would just keep charging. I fried several packs with it. I sent it in for warranyt repair and they sent me back a new one and it did the same thing. I ten sent it back and told them to keep it and I bought a alpha 4. And havent had a problem since.

My Supernova did that once, and I found the problem to be a bad lead. Check you cables - the charger is probably fine.
