Hobbico's Quick Field Charger
I bought this a couple years ago and never really used it,
It's just been sitting in It's box: $25 shipped SOLD
With Hobbico's Quick Field Charger, there's no need to miss even a minute of flying time. With a 12V battery or power supply as a power source, it can swiftly and safely recharge receiver and transmitter NiCds to peak power with push-button ease. It's an easy way to enjoy more spur-of-the-moment flying sessions when you haven't recharged - and an economical way to extend flying time to the fullest.
Safely fast-charges 9.6V transmitter and 4.8V or 6.0V receiver NiCds to peak from any 12V DC power source.
Offers completely independent charge cycles for Tx and Rx packs - cycles can be started separately or simultaneously.
Unique voltage boost circuitry ensures complete peak charging of Tx NiCds, even in diode-equipped radios.
LEDs glow to indicate power source, and charge-in-progress for Tx and Rx NiCds - Tx and Rx LEDs blink when NiCds are fully charged and in trickle charge.
Inexpensive 2A fuse protects entire unit from damage due to incorrect hook-up.
Protected by the Pro Series' extended 2-year warranty.
Fully charges 500-600mAh radio batteries in about 45 minutes - even less if the batteries aren't completely discharged.
Special 90-minute "time out" feature offers a second level of protection against overcharging.
Voltmeter jacks and "Tx/Rx" select switch are built-in to monitor charge in progress is as easy as adding a voltmeter and flipping a switch.
banana plugs or charge leads required.
Advanced "negative" Delta Peak technology prevents overcharging by automatically switching to trickle charge (60 mAh rate) when packs are at peak capacity.
Because its dimensions match those of power panels, the Quick Field Charger fits perfectly into your field box-creating a handy charging station for your radio batteries.
Never again will dead radio batteries call a premature halt to an exciting day of flying. Hobbico's Quick Field Charger recharges them at the field-and puts you right back in action. Note: Tx batteries which are approaching full charge can reach or exceed 12.0V DC. In this case, if a charger is powered by a 12V field battery, there is not enough excess voltage in which the charger can properly charge the battery because the charger itself must consume a certain amount of voltage in order to operate. This problem is worsened if the Tx has a diode in its charge circuitry. The Quick Field Charger and Quick Peak Charger from Hobbico employ a 'voltage boost' circuit which takes the 12V DC input and then increases it to 15V DC. The remainder of the charger circuitry operates from this 15V DC power, which is more than enough to fully peak charge Tx batteries - even in diode protected transmitters.
