radio shack inverter & Triton charger?
Hey guys,

I just bought a inverter from Radio shack so I could charge my lipo's in the house with my Triton charger instead of having to run it off my truck battery. The inverter puts out 13.8VDC - 15 Amps. Will this inverter work with the Triton? I have NO electrical knowledge at all and hope that someone can help! I really want to get my Trex SE up and going. Thanks and Aloha, Curtis.

The specifications on that power supply are more than enough to run the triton, should work great.Ignorance is curable, stupidity is for life.

Hey waipahe.....
I have the same charger and Radio Shack power supply. Both works great! I was wondering what max amps do you charge your lipos?
What settings do you recommend for a TP 3s 2100?
Thanks

I'm using the 15 amp one to power 2 Tritons with no problem.

And not to be too picky.. but it's a "Converter" or "Transformer Rectifier" to be more specific.. not an "Inverter"

I have something similar, but it only puts out 5 amps. I have always called it a "regulated power supply" and have used it to power an electric cooler, large air pump, and charged my boat battery with it once. Have been using it for over 20 years with zero problems.miroker
Fly till its broke, then fix it.

i made my power supply out of a regular atx computer power supply. just look all the 12V line and see how many amps it puts out. open it up and take all the yellow wires(i took 4 or 5 of them) and wire them to a post or bolt sticking out of the box. then take the black and do the same with the other post. now im just starting in the heli world and have never charged lipo but for all my cars im using a indi 16x5 with no problems. just my 2 cents
