This is the DuraTrax Onyx 245 AC/DC Dual Charger. LiPo, LiFe, NiCd, NiMH...the Onyx 245 charger handles all of these batteries, with built-in balancing that maximizes the safety, longevity and performance of your cells. Its dual charging capability can keep bashers in action whose vehicles require two batteries for operation — as well as racers running in two classes that need to charge both receiver or race packs at the same time.

  • Compatible with LiPo, LiFe, NiMH and NiCd batteries.
  • Output adapters for ALL the connectors drivers use most!
  • The Onyx 245 is two chargers in one. Identical twin outputs make this an excellent choice for models that use two battery packs — and for modelers who rotate through multiple batteries at home or at the track.
  • A built-in balancer for each port ensures optimal charging of lithium packs, including LiPos and LiFe cells such as LiFeSource™ packs. AC/DC flexibility, an advanced LCD with backlight, and simple menus and controls make it easy to use anytime, anywhere, by anyone.
  • Compact, lightweight, powerful and versatile, the DuraTrax Onyx 245 gives racers yet another advantage on race day!
  • Can charge two batteries of different chemistries simultaneously — from NiMH to LiPo to LiFeSource™ Lithium Iron Phosphate (LiFe).
  • Each output includes built-in balancing for up to 3S LiPo/Li-Ion/LiFe batteries plus a built-in radio battery charge jack.
  • 5 Year Limited Warranty (U.S.A. and Canada only)
Special Features:
  • Two independent outputs, each with identical features and functions.
  • Each output includes built-in balancing for 2-3S lithium packs (both outputs).
  • Each output includes a built-in jack for charging 4-5 cell receiver packs and even transmitter packs!
  • A small, lightweight, built-in AC power supply is great for cramped pit spaces and easy portability.
  • Each output offers selectable charge currents of 800mA, 1.5A, 3A and 5 amps.
  • Each output includes a backup safety timer which automatically stops charge to prevent accidental battery overcharge.
  • Includes Deans® Ultra Plug®, Traxxas®, and standard connector adapters for each output.
  • Includes ElectriFly® and FlightPower®/Thunder Power™ 6S balance boards.
  • Solid-state reverse polarity and current overload protection ensure trouble-free operation.
  • A DC power lead with alligator clips easily connects to many 12V DC power sources
