Muchmore have introduced their new voltmeter 2S balance charging leads for the Hybrid Touch Duo charger. The harnesses include a built-in voltmeter that allows to check the battery voltage without having to look on the display while also working as a stand-alone item to check battery pack voltage without the charger. The all-black wires make for a factory look and the leads are available for the left and the right charger output, ensuring good readability of the display. While being made for the Muchmore Hybrid Touch Duo charger the leads also work with other devices that use XH balancer ports and XT60 charge lead connectors.
Coming from RC Concept is their new balance charge harness for dual 2S LiPo battery packs. The 600mm long harness allows to charge two 2S LiPo packs from one charger output, saving a lot of time and making it possible to charge four packs at the same time using a dual output charger. The balance charge wire comes pre-soldered with 4mm charger and stepped 4mm/5mm plugs on the battery side as well as an XH balancer port and 2mm balance plugs. The harness is only usable with dual 2S packs but not a single 4S battery.

New from R1 Wurks is the Super LCG 80A spec racing brushless speed controller. Developed using an advanced CPU technology and proprietary software combo, the ESC is meant to deliver smooth yet most responsive throttle feel. The controller offers the same advanced throttle and brake adjustability as R1 Wurks’ Digital 2 ESC to suit a wide range of driving styles and offers blinky mode (zero timing) for spec racing. All adjustable settings are easily programmed using a digital program box, designed with an intuitive, easy to use interface. The unit also features the A.C.L.C. Advanced Component Level Cooling system, this design allows individual Mosfets to transfer heat directly to the upper heatsink. The Super LCG saves up to 50 grams (including wire) of weight compared to R1’s full sized ESC, and has a nearly 30 percent smaller footprint.
