We are using modified Meanwell RSP2000 chargers that output an adjustable 1000 to 2000 watts. They are CC/CV chargers since balancing is done on the BMS.
They are 5 lbs each and are 2000 watts each. Last year 4300 watts of PL8's and power supplies weighed 65 lbs.
This year we can easily carry 2 aboard while flying. That would be 4000 watts of charging as 10 lbs of luggage.
