Buy an iCharger

Hi David. You're right in that iChargers are great chargers. This Ultra Power 240AC Plus offer a lot of great programming features, great power output, 4 charging ports, and a built-in power supply. iChargers tend to be much more expensive and require an external power supply. Albeit, they are nice chargers :-)
Massdrop, we really deserve some sort of explanation on the shipping date for this drop. We're 3 business days plus the weekend past your given date, an update would be nice.

I was wondering the same thing.

received mine today.
I've bought a few RC's and batteries in anticipation for this thing, can't wait lol.
I am interested. but any one knows of any existing users or are personally using and having issues like this ? https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?2649422-Ultra-Power-UP240AC-Plus-issues
Hope what he had was just a one-off faulty unit ..

hey airjordan, i won't be joining this drop. I am eyeing instead on this http://www.skyrc.com/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=236.
if you don't need 4 ports, this one has 2 and can handle up to a whopping 400w on a single channel. if you charge 2 at one go, 400w is shared between port 1 and 2.
I'm not a charger programmer, so here are my guesses. 1) It sounds like the charger may be faulty and in need of warranty / repair. We use this charger as well as other ultra power chargers around our shop and don't encounter this issue with good, functional batteries. 2) I believe that most chargers don't 'balance discharge'. So when discharging, they may read the main voltage only. The voltage readings on the entire pack were 9.09V when he was done discharging. So under this theory, the charger simply discharged the battery from the Main Positive and Negative lead, just like your ESC would, and the battery discharged more quickly on cells 2 and 3. This could indicate that those cells are weaker than cell 1, therefore discharging faster. Both are my guesses. I don't know for sure :-/
Fingers crossed we get to the lowest drop point. I'm just getting back into RC's and decided electric is the way to go this time so hopefully this charger lasts.

Good charger to invest in, I have seen nothing but great reviews, not to mention we have a great warranty through massdrop.

Good to hear
Y'all are a bunch of dorks u know it's a cheap charger u wanna save money so buy it if you want quality then you gotta pay higher prices and if u knew anything about electronics the plugs wouldn't matter just make your own
If you want to risk buying from a company that will provide no support and no warranty for you after the sale, take the risk. The charger listed on eBay for that price probably also does not include the correct power cord or any charging cables and accessories. This will cause the final price to be much higher than the price here once you obtain all those things.

you mean this item or the item on ebay?

Massdrop's image is correct. Red/+. Black/-.  The eBay image has red/- and Black/+. That being said, I saw 2-3 RC sites which used the same wrong image the eBay seller is using.
What customer protection massdrop gives? In case this item will be defective.

any one elso notice that the powercable does not match the cable input? it has a different connector type, the cable shown has a standard 3 prong plug used for pc power supplies and on the unit it has a triple circular connector.
Does this charger require a external power supply (as in AC to DC)? Or does it have one built in?
totterfree
Hi Totterfree,
This charger is AC and DC it has an internal power supply capable of pushing 240W total. At home plug it into the wall, at the track/field one can use the 12v DC battery in their vehicle.
Is this able to do capacity mapping?
Interesting. I wonder if they were clones or not. The reason being that, so far, we have sold quite a few cartons of these chargers. Even to people who use them week-in and week-out at the tracks and fields. We haven't had even ONE customer return or complaint yet. Thanks for the info! Keep in mind that the charger does carry a 1 year warranty which is US based, located in NY (not china)! So if something were to happen, you're certainly covered.
I bought one and got a replacement from Amazon and both started smoking after about 15 min of usage... A few others have reported the same thing.. ended up going with a hitech and been happy ever sense. I'm scared of this brand..

I have an issue with mine (two port version) as well. Currently I have an RMA open with Dirt_Cheap_RC as a result. one side says ext. temp too high the moment it turns on without any temperature probe attached. :(
Hey All. This is such a cool, innovative 4 port charger. We have personally used it and are very knowledgeable about this charger. Please let me know if you have any questions. We'll be sure to answer them. Thanks!
