Default Need specific recommendation for dual charger

I am looking for a recommendation for a multi chem charger that has (1) dual ports, (2) both AC and DC input, and (3) an external discharge function and can completely shut off the discharge at a certain voltage. I want to use my own 2 ohm, 900 watt array of cooled resistors.

I already have a charger with an external discharge function, but the problem is I need to plug in the battery to be discharged into the DC INPUT port of the charger, so when it’s done discharging to a set voltage, the battery keeps on powering the charger.

Preferably such a charger would use XT-60 for everything but it’s not a deal breaker.

I picked up this one recently and have been really liking it. I don't know though it it fits your criteria #3. I love having the touch screen. $86

I don't know of any charger that runs on AC that can do a resistive load discharge. (and I've looked) I have an iCharger 308 Duo that does everything on your list except AC input quite well.

Could relax on the AC input I suppose. I’ll look into the iCharger. Thank you.

Use an iCharger on a deep cycle.. nearly 'unlimited' fast charges for your helis which take the small lipos. I use two deep cycles since I fast charge 2x6s5000mah packs at a time.
