We have power at our field so I have a converted pc power supply up there with a few outputs. We all just tie into it and charge away. Otherwise I use my car but it is only good for about 8-10 2200 3s packs or a couple 5000 6s packs before the voltage drops into the mid-11V range. Then I idle it for 15-30min and it is all charged up again. Rinse and repeat.- Chris

60Ah Leisure battery. However it soon drops to 11.5 volts and my chargers start beeping due to low input voltage. It'll do 3 packs before it becomes a big problem, other chargers may allow a lower input voltage, going to 11v would make a big difference.Vibe 90, Vibe 50, Vigor CS x2,

I use a car booster box and plug in a banana plug adapted into the cigerette lighter port. Works good. I only use this setup at fields that don't have power. The field I fly my helis at has power. Chuck
