Hello,

Yesterday I won a icharger 4010 Duo charger in a raffle at the RC club that I belong to. I went to sleep that night with a big smile on my face.
I woke up this morning thinking about what power supply should I get?
Ny initial thoughts are to get a 48VDC power (with 30A to 50A) supply for no other reason than to reduce the amount of current in the wires between the power supply and the charger, and also to allow for future growth.
I am aware that I may have to get two server power supplies and put them in series in order to get the 48 volts. Having two supplies may be more expensive and complex than a single 24v supply rated at 1200 watts.
I am planning to have a parallel charge board on each one of the outputs ports. Each parallel charge board will have three 6s 2650ma lipo batteries that I will charge at a 1X rate.
So any ideas and/or comments?

Regards, Dave

Whatever power supply you settle on make sure it is high quality. I went through 3, 4010s a few years back because my power supply was occasionally spiking just over 50 volts and frying them. Customer service is pretty terrible from Icharger if it ever goes down. I ended up with a dual power lab 8 and a bump controller. Nothing really against the 4010, but I feel they could have made it a bit more robust at the input to handle a few more volts to be on the safe side. Perhaps it would be smart to stick with a 24-36 volt power supply being as you will not be pushing the charger even close to its limit, you could series 2-3 dirt cheap 12's to get the watts you need.
