That would be great charging batteries for the Multiplex Rockstar I wish I had right now *sigh* Oh HiTec how you tease us =) The phone wifi would be handy though -- we have a battery shed but it is just far enough back from the stalls that I cannot hear the beepers ... and at home I charge in a cinderblock fort in the garage and can't hear them go off there either.

Just to clarify:

The charger has a built in 10 amp AC power supply that can supply UP to 100 watts of charging power for BOTH channels. With the sharing function, this means you can have 70 watts on one channel and 30 on the other, or 50 watts on both, or 80 on one and 20 on the other, or all 100 watts on one channel and no power to the other- whichever combination you want, it's user settable. In DC mode, you have 100 watts available on EACH channel, for a total of 200 watts of output.

I haven't had the opportunity to actually test one out myself but the verdict is it's well liked.

Regarding the Rockstar:

We have an ETA sometime in the beginning of July which means by mid July it will be available through everywhere that can sell Hitec RCD / Multiplex USA products. We ourselves are anxiously awaiting the arrival of our test model, shouldn't be long.


Thanks [MENTION=3822]Xpress[/MENTION]... They available anywhere... I haven't found one in my browsing.

And in the Rockstar.... Sigh... Flying season is a wasting!

And in the Rockstar.... Sigh... Flying season is a wasting!

You live in Arizona, you have 2 whole seasons there: Hot and Not hot :banana:

It will be here in due time, I promise!
