This is the TrakPower VR-1 DC Dual Channel Racing Charger. The TrakPower VR-1 Dual Racing Charger is a high performance, fully programmable and computerized battery charger designed for the electric racer. Dual outputs with built-in balancing provide the ability to charge two batteries simultaneously and eliminate the need for a separate in-line balancer. A large, tilt-able, reversed backlit graphic LCD makes it easy to view at any angle, indoors or out. Capable of charging all chemistry types in the R/C industry, the VR-1 can handle 20A (up to 6S) on Channel 1 and 6A (up to 4S) on Channel 2, the VR-1 quickly and safely charges batteries so you can get back on the track!
