The 615 can not charge a 12s pack but it can charge a pair of 6s packs if that is what you are asking And the answer is about 7A. But don't take my word for it, check out my site to learn how to calculate this.

Two side by side 180 Watt chargers (watts = volts X amps).

I just got one and I'm loving it. 15 min charges (2C essentially) on my syncd 5S G3 packs, can keep flying all day!!!

Also, i can use the two chargers independently, if needed, for any number of items that might need to be charged. Very portable, I have a small aluminum carry case with my power supply, the charger and all the necessary connectors, nothing else to pack or unpack at the end of the day or on my way to the field. Just throw it in with the helis and i'm good to go.

2C charging will take about 30min on a 80% discharge.

If u stop at 95%, it is significantly shorter. My current packs are only being discharged to 70% as it's a new Heli with néw packs.

Agreed, that when I dischg to 80%, it'll be a bit slower, but prob not 30 min unless I take it to 100% (last 5% takes much longer).

But you did not say that, you simply said you charge at 2C and it takes you 15min. See that is misinformation and confuses new pilots. If you want to brag about 15min charge times then at least explain why your charge times are 50% less than everyone elses.

Hey chris, thanks for straightening me out.

The 720i duo sounds like it will be super, just not available right now.
