Im new with this charger just want to get some idea from someone who had experience with this charger. My question is Can I charge my 5000mah battery in 2c? I note it only 200 watt per output. I own my volt 101 charger I can push up to 3C with 5000mah without a problem and it only take 14min. Just want to see this Bantam can do the same thing. I have 1200 watt power supply

If your 5000mAh batteries are 6S, no you can't charge them at 2C.

200 Watts / 25.2 Volts = 7.9 Amps.

So you could charge at 1.6C; but, you could charge two batteries at that rate.

It will depend on how many cells are in the battery you are charging.I see you said 5000 mah but how many cells?

With a 5000mAh battery, I would really look at a more powerful charger no matter how many cells.

Thanks, TheWoodCrafter

Just To Clarify
I use 2 of the BC8DX chargers in my flight box with a 60amp power supply.. I can charge 4 x 6s 5000 packs at 1c and usually takes about 30-40 minutes depending on how far I pull them down...
I am a scale flier and have no need to charge any faster...plus I have more then one pack for each machine...so really no down time unless I feel like sitting and shooting the "bull" which does happen quite often...
