I'm going to take the plunge in purchasing the powerlab 8 charger. Can anyone tell me what else I need to purchase to use this puppy correctly and to its full potential. I know I need a power supply and some other stuff.
What power supply do you all recommend? What cable and connectors? I want to be able to charge multiple batts at at time too so what do I need in order to this? What am I missing? I just hate buying stuff and then realize I need one more thing to buy in order to use the item.
hey jeremy, I was looking into getting the powerlab 6 and was wondering if it will do everything the powerlab 8 will, but just has 1000w instead of 1344w. I just want to know if it will be almost the same as in charge time and those other capabilities you described in the video such as smart charge. Also I was wondering if the parallel board they offer is good. It's like a 60amp parallel board and can do 6 batteries. My last question on the charger is if it is better than the hitec x4 plus acdc. I've been debating on these two for forever!!!
I was wondering if my rigged computer power supply will work to power it indoors. I have an enermax liberty 500w modular powersupply that I took and basically made a positive and a negative post to clamp onto. I feel that it is quite similar to the specs as the protek 40 but I am not sure. Attachment 491Attachment 492
My thought process was that if I just add up the amount of amps the psu is pushing for each 12v port, It'll add up to over 40 amps atleast. I really am not sure if this will work with the powerlab 6 because it does need a lot of power. It works for smaller chargers, but i'd really like your help on this. Thanks!!!
P.S. You guys are awesome!!! Hands down one of my biggest influences in R/C. I don't buy anything without checking to see if you have a video review on it!
Hey guys, New to this hobby. I got the Powerlab 8 bc of the recommendation for your youtube video. Im still trying to figure out how to charge this battery using this machine. I have a Turnigy 5000mAh 45-90C discharge 6s. I want to charge it off my car battery, until I get a PS. I just dont know how to set it up... When I connect everything, I choose "battery" as power source, then From there I get lost. I find my way to charge rate and choose 5A, then it asks discharge rate in Amps??? Help please..
