    Default Charging batterys in parallel

    Hi,, I'm looking to charge multiple lipos at once, right now I have a venom duo and it works good but I was wondering if this set up would work with my charger?

    Thanks in advance

    I use a few of those boards as well, they work well, but it all depends on the wattage of your charger as to how long/fast it will take to charge multiple packs.

    What are the specs on your charger?

    Kyle - where in ONT. are you?

    Circuit Power: 2 x 80W

    So you have two outputs at 80W max each - Correct?
    What size (S) and mAh packs are you charging?

    Say - you are charging a 4S -5000mAh pack (16.8V) your Max amp's is 4.76A per output. (this is not even 1C rate)

    I think you may need a bigger charger. Maybe something along the line of 150W to 200W per output.

    Like Larry said, you do need a more powerful charger....your current one will work, but it will take a while to charge the packs...if you have the time, then fine, but if your intent is to fast charge multiple packs in parallel, you will need a higher wattage charger, plus a suitable power supply.
