Turnigy 4x6S Improvement.

Hello.

For those who have this charger and want to extend its life.
Tested and started warming just load 1.5A.
I put four heatsinks, done!

Best regards, Nuno

Those aren't heatsinked at all? It looks like they're intended to attach to the bottom of a metal enclosure.

Sorry for the delay, holiday
The transistors can not shake the box, the box is also plastic.
Put heatsinked because they heat, low temperature only 1A.

How much do they heat?

Due to the size such components heat up rapidly, however they are also able to stand temps of ~100C without issue (Ok it shortens their life, but ~25 years is plenty IMO). You should measure the steady state temp at various loads.
