Are any of you guys using this charge station for multiple batteries? Can you use it with the cheapy charger from your mcpx or do you NEED a better charger.

To charge 6 240 mAh Hyperions in parallel at 1C you would need a charger that can put out 1.44 Amps. 240 x 6 = 1440 1441 / 1000 = 1.44 This is 1C. I charge in parallel at 5C and that is 1.44 x 5 = 7.20 Amps. I don't think you want to bother trying to charge 6 batts in parallel with the charger that came with the MCPX. It would probably take a long time. I forget what that stock charger puts out but it probably puts out just enough Amps to charge one stock MCPX battery at around 1C or so. The best thing to have for flying electric RC helis is a good strong charger. I like the Hyperion AC/DC charger. It can be used plugged into the wall or hooked up to 12V. I'm happy with it.

Since the recommended charge rate for one battery on the stock charger is .7 amp, and that is the maximum that charger can put out. If you use the parallel adapter, it will just increase your charge time.

I charge 2 in parallel at 1.4 amps and 4 in parallel at 2.8 amps. The charge time in either case is about 15 minutes, the same as a single battery on the stock charger at the recommended .7 amp rate.
