The Hardline Solution charging combo from Progressive RC

Nov 23, 2012 No Comments by

I was looking for a solution to charging a pair of 6s 5000 mah lipo’s for my Trex 700E when I heard of  ”The Hardline Solution” combo from Progressive RC. This combined an iCharger 3010B along with a Mean Well SE-1000-24 power supply in a PRC Hardline Case, along with all the accessories I needed.

The Mean Well 1000W power supply gives me all the power I need to charge the 6S packs at 30 amps with the iCharger 3010B, and included in the package are all the accessories to create a portable charging station. Progressive RC will also assemble the combo by mounting the power supply and charger, drill the holes, and connect everything up so that when it arrives all I had to do is plug it in to AC power and start charging
