This charger really that much better that lets say an hitec x4 charger which charges 4 batteries at a time?

The Hitec is 4x50W. This Hyperion is 2x500W. You judge.

You can start with one, you could parallel charge, so in the same time you charged 4 packs on your old charger, on ONE of these you could charge 20 packs.
10 packs on each channel, charged at 50watt each.

Kind of depends on what pack sizes your using etc which is the optimal solution for you.

I have been using Hyperion chargers starting with the 1210i and then the pair of 0610DUOs I have (1st generation).

The new one is a must have for me and I know that it will serve me well for years, just as my others have.

The 720iDUO3 can charge a 6S 5,000 mAh pack at 20 amps, or 4C! So two packs in say 20 minutes. The Hitec mentioned above can do that same pack at only 2 amps, or about C/2. So the Hyperion in effect can charge 10 times faster!!

They are not cheap, but my experience has been that they are worth every dollar!!

Hi,

Is this 20 amps/4C per port? or total?

Thanks,
G

20A is the limit, for a 5A pack its 4C, for a 1A pack it would be 20C

So my question is what power supply would you need to have to charge so much? Seems like you would need an expensive power supply to match. What options are out there?

In order to get the full potential, meaning being able to charge at max capacity per port, you will need at least 24 volts from the power supply. You will also need at least a 40 amp PS at that voltage.

Sadly, these are not cheap. Progressive RC sell the Iota power supplies, but they are $330 each. I have a 12V 55 amp Iota and have been very happy with it.

These chargers require nice clean power to work at their maximum potential. And that does not come cheaply.

Cheapest is 2x server powersupplies in series, 16 dollars on ebay will get you 24v 1150watts

(possible to build more powerful easy too)

RCG battery forum is filled with all needed to know, including saftey aspects that need to be honored.

Keep in mind that a lot of the eBay stuff is their because it was removed from its intended service, many times due to defects. That same RCG forum has lots of reports of issues using the low cost PS.

Just a thought.

Low cost PC supplies yes, server supplies are built much more rigid. They are built for cont use.
Ive built a lot for myself and my friends.

True that they're used, but at the same time most of the power supplies that us RC guys are snatching up cheaply are from older servers that were removed from service because they're just too old and slow to get the job done. That doesn't necessarily mean the components are bad. Server power supplies are quite robust by design.

Nearly all the sellers on ebay list them as tested and working and on top of that have DOA return/exchange policies. I have seen a few listed as either not tested or "for parts only." I'd stay away from those or any vendor that doesn't offer a return policy.

I'm 8 for 8 when it comes to used ESP135 power supplies off ebay-- they all work great with zero issues. Average cost for all of them is about $17 each including shipping.

I've built 4 24V 47A power supplies now (2x ESP135 in series); 2 for myself and 2 for other friends. All are working great!

I have 3 articles on the subject, one for converting the HP ESP135 series power supply, one for putting 2 of them in series and a 3rd covering a similar Dell model.

The manual at Hyperion's website lists 40 watt max discharge per port, 300ma max balance current per cell.
Does the hyperion come with the storage charge setting?
Yes, although I wish it were voltage based and not TCS "calculated capacity" based. At least on my 615 Duo 3 the TCS method produces substantially different at rest voltages depending on if the charger was charging to storage charge or discharging to storage charge and never seems to leave the packs at a consistent storage voltage. With my Duo 615 the storage mode would always seem to end up leaving my packs about 3.9-4.0V/cell which is higher than the suggested 3.85V/cell for storage. I prefer the iCharger method of storage charge by voltage which either charges or discharges until 3.85V/cell is achieved and then the charger shuts off. After doing a "storage mode" on the iCharger the packs always come off between 3.84-3.86 volts per cell no matter if the charger had to charge or discharge the pack to storage level.

40-70% is OK for storage, there is no really "must be 50%" so that's why TCS does not care really (target is 60% on the Hyperions)

The standard 3.85 is just something that stuck since it happens to be in the middle.
