Just bought a couple of SPC lipos 6000 30c 2s 7.4...Seems like the Dynamite Ultra is the most powerful for the Under $200 Class Of Chargers...Its 100 watt power supply with a 8 amp charge rate....Any Ideas
Do u know if traxxas connectors come with it
Both of those chargers are DC only... meaning you need an external power supply. A power supply for the first one would cost around $85-100 (I have that charger but the protek version... its awesome but with the power supply it cost over $200).
I ALSO have the Dynamite Passport Ultra and its EXCELLENT for the money. For $120-130 you get an all in one setup that just plugs into the wall and, like you listed, charges a 2S lipo at a FULL 8 amps... but can also charge a 3S lipo at a FULL 8 amps. Ive looked and looked and its near impossible to find a charger for the same money that can do what the passport ultra can. It also has a 5 year warranty... but keep your receipt. Mine stopped working after just over a year and in less than 8 days I had a brand new one on my door step. Thats good customer service.
A traxxas connector does NOT come with it... but you can get a TRX charge lead for about $8 or a Squid (with like 8 different ends) for about $12. Youd need that with the venoms also I believe. Most chargers dont come with TRX charge leads.
It was your posts that made me look at the Ultra, and I cant find a better ac charger iM GONNA GET IT..Many Thanks
oynx 235 comes with deans tamiya and traxxas will also charge your camera cell phone mp3 player and more via a usb port it's a great balance charger for under 90 bucks
Unfortunately the Onyx 235 is only a 50 watts... it will only charge a 3S lipo at 4 amps. In fact it can ONLY charge those SPC lipos at 1C (6 amps max) whereas the Ultra, for only $30 more, can charge the same lipo or a 3S (if you get one down the road) at 8 amps.
I think your making a good decision you wont regret.
If you want a super powerful charging setup for $200, here you go:
This will require a nice power supply, which can be found here:
Yes its a computer server power supply, but a simple harness to turn the PS on is all that is needed.

so whats newer the ac6 or the ac680 im confused?
geez for me bieng a newb to electrics...i just wanna know will i be happy if i purchase this charger. lol will it do the job for me?
Hmm, I wonder why my posts are eaten by the forum monster every once in a while. From what I have heard it is a good charger.
Nobody is born with experience
So this discussion is considered a non traxxas discussion. I was just wondering what is a good charger for my Lipo battery that will be operating a traxxas vehicle. If traxxas made a lipo charger I am sure we would all have that. lol
You might be and some others will certainly be helped to understand the policy by reading this thread: Guidelines for discussing aftermarket parts
If you're gonna be stupid, you'd better be tough.
