For Sale
GT Power V5 Balancing LiPo/NiMH Charger with AC Power Supply, $40 shipped

I purhcased this GT Power V5 charger here, then I purchased another charger, so I don't need this one anymore.

The item is as far as I can tell brand new, in the original box, with the original plastic protection film on the LCD display. I have only fired it up to test it, and it balances perfectly.

Here are the specs:

Operating voltage range: 10.0-18.0 Volt
Circuit power: Max 50W
Charge current range: 0.1-5.0A
Current drain for balancing Li-Po: 200mAh/cell
NiCd/NiMH battery cell count: 1-14 cells
Li-ion/Polymer battery cell count: 1-5 series
Pb battery voltage: 6V,12V
Net weight: 280g
Dimensions: 1308023mm
Balancing tab type: Fusion-Pack, Align, Esky, ect.

Included:
Charger
Temp Probe
Charging leads; JST, glow plug, RX plug.
Instruction Booklet

For another $10 I will include a 12V 4.1 amp switching power supply that terminates in a cigarette lighter jack, plus a custom made cigarette lighter plug to 5.5x2.3mm coax plug to mate to the charger. With this cord you can also use the charger in the field from your car's cigarette lighter outlet.

The original didn't come with a Dean's connector charging cord, so I will also throw in a loose Dean's style XT connector for you to fab up your own. You choose which factory cord to cut up, or use a 5.5x2.1mm Coax connector to make a new cord. Or if you like I'll do the fabbing for you when you purchase, and ship it with a Dean's cord all ready to go.

I'm asking $30 shipped CONUS for the charger. Add $10 shipped for the AC power supply, cigar lighter cord, and Deans type XT Connector.

PayPal only please.

Thanks for looking.

Bump. This setup is perfect for field charging, as a backup charger, or for the guy who has a RTF airplane setup that came with one of those balance port only LiPo chargers. This charger will let you charge at up to 5 amps, but if you have a Radian RTF with a 1300 mAh battery, charging at 2C is only 2.6 amps anyway.

The nice thing I like about this charger is that the balance plugs are built right into the side of the charger, so you don't need to mess around with a balance port adaptor board. And this charger comes with the temperature probe, so you can charge those NiMH batteries and cut off when they reach 45 C.

question

with all the power cable mods you mention in your description, I can't tell if there is a way to simply plug the power supply into a normal 110v outlet for home use.

The Charger itself only has a 12V input. I have made a cable that connects the charger to an automobile 12V cigarette lighter outlet. For the additional $15 I will include this cable and a 110V AC power supply that has as its output a 12V cigarette lighter socket. That is the power supply in picture #3, and you can see the 110V plug.

So yes, you can plug it into 110V if you either supply your own 110VAC-12VDC power supply, or buy the one I have offered.

Bump for a four button 50W charger capable of up to 5S, plus an AC adapter, plus a car cigarette lighter adaptor.

Somebody's gotta want this gem.
