More new items from Muchmore who have released their new Cell Master Specter charger and optional discharge bank. The charger features a 4.3″ IPS touch display with a new menu structure designed to be easy to use for all skill levels with the display showing the battery condition very accurately with clear colour and fast response. A real time battery IR view allows you to check your battery condition quickly and easily with the battery resistance monitoring feature. It’s designed for LiPo and LiHV cells and includes an optimal cycle mode to maintain your batteries and guarantee the most power. The Specter cycle mode for stock racers supports 3 cycling functions which lowers the internal resistance to create more performance. This unit now supports 40A charging and, with the optional discharge bank, 40A discharging up to 350W. The discharge bank adds the additional 20A to the discharge performance of the charger, which by itself is 20A. Featuring a full aluminium case, it aids in dispersing the internal heat build up to improve efficiency and user protection. It also sports a status LED which makes it easy to check the current working status of the unit.
GForce from Japan have introduced their new GD250 stand alone discharger for 2S to 8S LiPo and 2-cell to 30-cell NiMH battery packs. With its 250W power circuitry it allows for up to 35A of discharge current with a 2S LiPo or LiHV battery pack, enough to swiftly discharge a fully charged battery down to storage voltage or to check a pack’s condition under heavier loads that the discharge function of a charger can supply. A display allows to monitor voltage, current and capacity in real time. The discharger can be coupled with a Windows PC and by using GForce’s GF Batt Manager software more details can be obtained from the discharge process – however the software is only available in Japanese language as of yet.
RC Discharger have introduced their new 6S 40 resistor bank for the use with the popular iCharger Duo device. The resistor bank allows to discharge 1S to 6S LiPo batteries at a constant 40A rate with an enclosed box ensuring the externals do not get hot which adds a lot of safety and convenience. The neat and clean design also acts as a stand for both the charger and a server-type power supply, ensuring minimal pit space is taken while short wires make for a neat and professional appearance. Like all RC Discharger devices the resistor bank is a plug and play, it comes without the charger and power supply and it is available from now on.
CS-Electronic from Germany have introduced their new 200W Competition Power Discharger device for the use in combination with the recently announced Space X3-Competition Duo charger. The discharger allows for discharge currents of up to 16A while offering balance discharging and single cell voltage monitoring, ensuring safe and secure discharging using high currents. The results will help to identify weak packs but the discharger also allows to bring fully charged packs to storage voltage a lot faster than just using the charger’s discharge function.
RC Discharger have introduced their new single iCharger X6 regenerative discharger. The third variant of the brand’s discharger line was designed for a single X6 charges and incorporates a clever stand for the charger and power supply. The device allows to charge and discharge batteries with 30A using the popular X6 charger in cycle mode. The recovered discharging energy is used for charging, making the whole design more environmental-friendly with the clean setup also minimising wires for greater efficiency. The discharger is ready-for-use and it is usable with many server-type power supplies.
Coming from RC Discharger is a new regenerative discharger for the use with two iCharger X6 devices. The unit allows to discharge 1S and 2S batteries at up to 30A using the popular X6 chargers, with the recovered discharge energy used for charging, making it very environmental-friendly. The X6 chargers can also used in cycle mode for even greater versatility. The 3-D-printed case houses the discharger and also acts as a stand for a power supply and the two chargers, with the discharger coming ready to use for real plug-and-play with optimised wire length for a minimal foot print.
Made for the iCharger X6 and Duo AC chargers is RC Discharger’s regenerative discharger. The device allows to simultaneously discharge and charge two 1S to 4S batteries at 40A using the popular X6 or Duo chargers with the recovered discharge energy used for charging and without blocking the two charge outputs. The 3-D-printed case houses the discharger and also acts as a stand for a power supply and the charger and the discharger comes ready to use as a real plug-and-play with optimised wire length for optimised pit space use.
A first product from RC Discharger is this 40A resistor bank for the iCharger Duo which has a optional stand for the charger itself along with space for the power supply. Made in the USA it can discharge your LiPos from 1S to 10S but doesn’t heat up thanks to its fan cooled box enclosure. Ready to use, it easily and neatly plugs into your iCharger, comes in 6 different colour options and has a 90 day warranty.
