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.

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.

Two gel cells in parallel. I wrapped both together in cloth tape and even made a handle out of it.

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
