20 Cell 3A Nimh Charger for mains?
« on: July 09, 2009, 05:33:53 pm »
Hi all,

Anyone know where I can get a 20 Cell 3A Nimh charger which runs off mains? Someone has lent me a Hitec one which will do upto 5A, 24 cells - but is a 'field' charger so it only runs of 15-9v input whilst I want to run it off mains elec.

cheers,
Chris

Why not ust one like the Hitec and just get a 12V power supply from somewhere like Maplins or Farnel? This way you can also use it when you are in the 'field', or in your car.
I can see the pub from here!

hmm.... could do except that would cost me £24 and then when I've returned the Hitec one I'll need to buy my own - for £40...
If I can find the 20 Cell 3A Nimh charger for mains and it is less that £64 - i'd rather do that.

What is this charger for?
Is it always going to be used with a 20-cell pack, or with various kinds of loads?

I've actually managed to find the Hitec charger for £25 and a 12V 10A supply for similar so pretty happy with that overall.

Cheers Will.
