+1 on the PL 8. I've had mine for two years and it's been flawless. I've used it from a generator with a 14 V, 300W Power supply, and from 12 V and 24 V (two in series) marine batteries. I also have a new PS (see below) that's perfect. There are many modes built into it with safety in mind. When I put an old lipo on, it's quite gentle, but it can charge 6S 5000s in parallel at 2 C (and more) no problem if you have the power source to drive it.

Not to long ago I got this Chargery 1200 WPS from Ready Heli:

https://www.readyheli.com/S1200-Cha...0A_p_40161.html

I went this route because the server PS options are often rather noisy and you don't get current draw info from them. This supply has been very quiet and efficient. That's important because I often charge the night before I plan to fly and I babysit my lipos while I'm doing this. Since I often pass the time by watching TV, a noisy fan would drive me crazy.

For small batteries I really like using the Thunder Power 610 Charger. For the bigger batteries, you can't go wrong with the FMA 10S Chargers.

It's a complex, costly, glow powered anti-gravity machine!

IMHO they're still being discovered and still being resolved. It's a new product and there are not many in the field yet.

Thanks Ace!

It seems like everything these days can be fixed with software updates. I bet you're right with it having the bugs worked out in 6-8 months time. I haven't had a chance to read the whole post yet. My wife is making me go out to dinner so I will ned to pick up where I left off later.

Now others would ask me how I know that and if I own one.
Bob you just posted earlier this morning that you were still looking to get one! Did you go out today and make a purchase?
