For now it's does what I need and is both ac dc powered, only need to plug in the ac and the relay setup I have automatically turns off the dc lioo packs, but so far functional, have 4 more 6000mah batteries on the way along with a Para board and more textured plastic for the lid, my plan was to have a feild box and a charger at the same time , hate making numerous trips from the car, but I will post more updates,

Neither. My power supply has pins for a "soft" switch.

Or if it's on the ac side a potential relay can be used , they vary is size and load capability

I also use relays to control wich circuit I want "normaly open or "normaly closed, 1 relay can do both if wired correctly along with some diodes

The power supplies I use are VERY clever with input and output sensing and micro-controllers inside running everything so a soft switch that interfaces with the microcontroller is just dead simple to add.

I do use some "locking" switches so you can't accidentally bump the switch and turn it on/off.

I'm honestly not sure if I ever posted here about them. Artesyn UFE1300-24. You can find them on ebay for less than $100 which is pretty good for a ~27v / 1500w industrial psu.

I also designed and had a pile of output PCBs made for them.

My charger storage case

Nanuk 918 case


This is how I generally transport it in the car


I keep two iCharger 380 Duo's and two S1500 Chargery 24V 1500Watts power supplies along with all needed wires.


When I get to the field, it takes me very little time to setup and charge.

I built this charging/storage case during our long covid lockdown this Spring. I was looking mainly for something to make it easier pack up and head to the field and came up with a variation on the charging case idea.......more of a field tote. But it does contain everything I need to charge, so I guess it belongs in this thread.
Two 40 Ah LiFeP04 batteries are on the bottom shelf to power an iCharger 106b. These batteries are 12 lbs each.
The bottom drawer contains charger and all charging accessories.
The top shelf has tools and such.
The top compartment hold the lipos.
There's a removable side compartment for the transmitter.
To start charging, open the drawer, drop the cables under an plug into the LiFeP04s. I usually do this the moment I arrive at the field so it's charing while I unpack.
Works well for my routine since I don't like to charge at home and I have no power at my field.

Figured this would be the best place to ask, as I'm looking to build a charger case.

Does anyone have a step file for the iCharger 4010 duo? Or know where I can find one?

Junsi will not provide CAD models. In fact, they act as if the molds for their charger cases were hand carved or something....

On the other hand, I have received full models for various Revo chargers.

I am curious how many guys using a Meanwell 24 volt supply are turning the voltage adjustment screw all the way up or just leaving it where it comes from the factory?

I have one as well as a 48V Meanwell. Not a bad idea. I was thinking of doing that originally but then got the 48V. If I remember correctly the adjustment has more latitude downward than up.

I did on my RSP-3000-24. It stops the PL8’s I use going into the buckboost bounce when charging 6s packs.
