Question
If you wish to charge the included battery from an AC power source, you will need the

Just a question I need to throw out there - I have just purchased a UMX Carbon cub and am getting it delivered next week but on reading up a bit it says:
If you wish to charge the included battery from an AC power source, you will need the optional power supply (EFLC4000)

Does anybody know if I will be able charge the lipos without this item and how? If not then where can I get one of these cables with an English adapter as the ones I have seen online all seem to have 2 pin plugs


Any advice would be greatly appreciated?

The included charger can also be run from a 12V battery e.g. a car battery. So provided you have access to one of those you should be able to charge the lipo.

Thanks Steve. Unfortunately I dont have access to a car battery - if I order EFLC4000 do you know if it will come with an english plug adapter?
