I need to charge and maintain three 4.8 volt nimh receiver packs. What would be a good economically priced charger and or cycler that would properly charge and maintain three packs simultaneously. I currently own and am using an Ace DDVC which works fine but will not automatically cycle or trickle once charged and doesn't support three packs simultaneously.

Please no suggestions to use any other receiver power source!

The lot I got is not a lot, but I thank God a lot for the lot I got!

None of those chargers can be used to charge three packs simultaneously, although multiple chargers would work.

If it were me and you only wanted a single charger I'd consider a used Litco Alpha 4 if you can find one. However, these are out of production and most likely cannot be serviced. The Alpha4 was the only worthwhile multi-port NiXx charger. Probably not a worthwhile option unless you can find one cheap.

Hughes RC makes the Spectra 4, but it's expansive and limited. http://www.hughesrc.com/

If you're open to multiple chargers, you can probably acquire three FMA Mult4 chargers when they go on sale within your budget range. Although no discharge capability, it does have a lot of charge features. I'd probably go this route myself as they are feature rich current technology.

The Hobbico Accucycle Elite is fairly inexpensive, works OK, and does 2 packs at a time.

Try Mainlink systems in the UK.

They make seroiusly up to the mark chargers and analyser, expect their gear to still be working in 20 years time, I know of several that still are.

I have the digiliser 2000 and the delta 4 2000 and they have been faultless, I really trust them.

Good luck

What about the "Imax B6-AC"?
Looks like a good charger for the money.

That will do the trick, and looks like it could double up as a spare lipo charger a well.
Good value for money, I have a version of it (b5) which only does 5 cells (12vdc only) but it works fine and has done for about 3 years.

Good luck

I have 3 main batteries I fly with. I think I have 5 wall chargers from old TX's. At any rate I just put my batts on the charger the night before,and leave them on charge overnight. I have been doing it this way for over 5 years, and i still fly my oldest NIMH in an old airplane. Not Hitech or according to hoyle,but it works very well.

There have also been times I leave work early to go fly. For that I charge with a Triton charger on auto. That takes 15 or 20 minutes.

Look at the new line of schulze chargers

These are the highest quality units I have ever seen,
and I have never had any issues for over fifteen years.
Parts quality, software, typical german quality.

Hi Guys,
I settled for a "Thunder AC680" from HobbyPartz. Looks like a good charger for the money. I've given up on the idea of one charger that will charge multiple packs simultaneously. Just can't justify spending $300.00 and up for a charger.
Anyone else have one of these? What do you think about it?

The lot I got is not a lot, but I thank God a lot for the lot I got!
