They are so durable we've even used 3 car batteries to charge 10S packs. I think the chargers are the 123 chargers from Astroflight.

Not too heavy for flying stuff, unless you are talking about really small stuff.

Also, I'm noticing this trend among jockeys, that many of them look like they have birth defects.

Currently one of the chargers says it has 4 cells connected when nothing is connected.

yea... my point exactly. The two that I held onto were my schulze and my thunder power. I think both do a123. Never really looked into it though.

$230 for a ThunderPower charger that would work.

All the Schulze chargers are stupid expensive.

lol. I got a deal on it, and before the tp 1010's came out with fast charging the schulze was the ****. It would charge literally everything avaliable. Was a bitch to use though. Do you have to balance a123's at all?

We don't worry about balancing the A123s much. When we have the time, we do, if we don't have the time, we don't worry about it.
