The most common size battery is two 6S 5000mAh packs. The higher the C rating the better.

You will want atleast a 1000W charger and matching power supply to charge quickly. Thunder Power, iCharger, and FMA all make very nice high power chargers these days.

Thanks for the reply.

I am looking for the fastest battery charger for the two 5,000 MaH batteries. I know they have one out there that will fast/balance charge the batteries in 10 minutes or so.

Do you know which one I am talking about?

All of those will do that. You just need a good power supply to run them. 2000 watt generator will do 4 6s at 2c no problem but that might be as much as you can get. I haven't pushed mine harder than that as it runs wide open then. As far as chargers go the Icharger 4010 duo will get you there and so will revolectrix pl8 duo will to. I am betting thunderpower will to but I don't know which one. 24volt power supply will prolly get the job done but you are gonna want the highest wattage you can get. The dps server ones will get you 1800 watts and there are a couple of others that will get you 1500 or so. Not sure how big meanwell will go. You could go 48volts and 220 with a meanwell and have a kick but system too. If it were me I would just call either revolectrix USA or progressive Rc and have them set you up with what you need. They know. Here you are just gonna get bombarded with a whole bunch of ideas and not a good answer because everyone's system is the best. It is not gonna be cheap thoTeam Jr

If you are after bigger packs because you want more flight time, consider using 10s instead of 12s and 6-8000mah packs, this will give you MUCH more flight time at only a slight reduction in head speed (1900 instead of 2100 for example).60% of the time, it works every time!
