Guide Review - Twin Peak AC/DC Dual Output Peak Detection Charger

The ability to charge two batteries at once cuts the waiting time. This is useful whether running RCs that run off dual battery packs, charging batteries for two vehicles, or to simply have one fully-charged battery pack in reserve at all times. Once one battery is dead, just put it on the charger and play with the other until it is run down. By that time, the other battery should be ready.

Dynamite's Twin Peak AC/DC Dual Output Peak Detection Charger is a versatile powerhouse accessory for RC owners. Easy to operate, it works with both Ni-Cd and Ni-MH battery cells. Operating off either AC or DC you can take it with you anywhere. Running off DC, I noticed a slightly longer charge time but still faster than regular charging. The included voltmeter jacks let you check your charge status to be sure it's charging properly -- in case you're in a big hurry and want to know just how much longer you'll have to wait for a full charge.
