The Radio Shack 15amp power supply has served me well for the past 5 years...unfortunately, the Hyperion DuoII charger could only charge my 6S 5000 packs at 4.5amps before it would thermal and shut down.

I found a "gaming computer" power supply at Best Buy today and scooped it up; A Corsair GS700. 700 watts (vs 240 watts from the Radio Shack) and 54 amps (vs 15) make this unit capable of pulling much bigger numbers...and it looks cool to boot. Changeable LED colors and a fan that I think was used to blow Fabio's hair around in commercials make it even better! It took me a few hours this afternoon to reduce the insane amount of wires coming out the back to a 4-pack of + and - leads.
If I can charge both my 6S packs at a 2S rate at the same time, then Ill be happy. Testing tomorrow.

I had a great time at the 1st Grayson Hobby Fly-In. It was held in an indoor soccer complex which was perfect in every way. A lot of air traffic but I managed to only get hit once.
I also won a 2200mah 3-cell in a raffle. Thanks Grayson Hobby
