Arriving in February this is a state of the art microprocessor based charger/discharger system for rechargeable batteries for R/C use. The SC is switching type and can fully charge Ni-MH and Ni-Cd 1 to 14 cells at a digitally preset amperage up to a maximum 6.0amps using peak detection and temperature limit methods. The SC can charge Lithium battery up to 5 cells.
Team Wave have released an updated version of their Lightning discharging rig, the V2. Improvements over the original version include this simple click in battery holder, voltage displayed for individual cells, a warning if a battery is put in incorrectly and the ability to use 4 or 6 cell easily. You can also set the voltage that the cells should drop to when discharging and of course it looks cool with the blue display.
