Common Sense RC Parallel Charging Board
PRBRD-UMXRegular price $ 11.99
Charge twelve UMX / Blade 130X lipos at the same time!
This new paraboard allows you to charge up to twelve lipos with UMX-style connectors at once. Because it charges in parallel, you can charge as few as one or as many as twelve batteries of varying capacities at the same time.
Perfect for batteries used in the Blade 130 X, mCP X BL, UMX Beast, Mig, Carbon Cub, and Sbach 342!
HOW TO USE IT
Simply connect the banana plugs and JST-XH balance leads to your 6S lipo charger, plug in the batteries you'd like to charge to the paraboard, program your charger and charge!
The paraboard allows you to connect up to 12 batteries in parallel so that you can charge them as a single larger mA two-cell battery (i.e. 2s12p). The only requirement is that all the batteries be within .10 of a volt of each other before charging. For example, if you either time your flights or fly till cutoff. You want to avoid connecting a fully charged battery to a group of discharged cells, since a rapid rush of current would occur.
Calclulate your charge rate by adding together the mAh of all the batteries you intend to charge. To charge your batteries at a 1C rate, divide your combined mAh by 1,000 and this will tell you what your amperage setting should be. e.x. (6) 7.4V 300mAh batteries would be: (6 * 300) = 1800 / 1000 = 1.8A
Maximum charge rate = 10A
