|Chico, California, June 15, 2009 – A Main Hobbies today announced a ProTek R/C iCharger 208B Lilo/LiPo/Life/NiMH/NiCD DC Battery Charger (8S/20A/350W). This charger allows you to charge and balance 2S to 8S lithium batteries, or multiple batteries connected together in series. The charger comes with an XH style balance adapter board that fits Align, E-Flite and ProTek R/C battery packs, and adapter boards for other batteries are also available.
This charger is also designed to allow you to balance multiple batteries at once as you can charge and balance up to two 4S batteries, two 3S batteries or three 2S batteries at once. When you connect multiple batteries, the batteries also need to be connected together with a serial charge lead. You should also make sure all the batteries are discharged or used in the same groups that you charge them in (ie: two 4S batteries used in series for a 8S battery pack etc).
The charger will sell with a street price of $189.99. But don’t be fooled by the low price! This charger performs as good as or better than the most popular name brand chargers on the market today.
