Hi guys,
As I get back in to this heli world again, I have a 5 year old Triton charger, I have a 10 watt (12 volt) power supply running the triton. Off of the Triton I have a Lipo balancer (interface) between the lipos and the charger. Is this an adequate set up for charging 3 cell packs for the Blade 450 3d? This year will be a mix of flying the mcpx brushless, Blade 450, and the Nitro Raptor 30 v2. Thank you for your wisdom, and this forum.

-Bill

The Triton must have the green sticker on the back. My interface also had balancing leads as I was charging. That is what I used when with my Trex 450 a few years back.

Might need a bigger power supply for the charger. The less than 1 amp output will make for long charge times for that 450

I missed that about the power supply. I though I saw 10 Amps this morning.

I'd highly recommend getting a purpose built LiPo charger with integrated balancer. There are quite a few inexpensive/used options available.

Yeah it is 10amps. Sorry about that. Don't know why I typed watts.
