Sorry if this is redundant, but since you asked on this thread here is a video that shows how this charging tower works.

I used fans with LEDs in them and tired them to only one of the power supplies.

I have a LONG way to go. I was inspired by another member to do a wood box. Not as elaborate but still plenty of storage. I plan on mounting a fan on either side of the charger blowing down into the power supply bay. And of course an exhaust port on the side for heat exit. There will be a fold out tray on either side of the Charger. When extended will hold my batteries while charging with small strips of velco. The bottom tray has enough room for the PSU and all my parallel wires and power cable.

It's an oldddd tool case I've had for 10 years. I am maybe 10% into the build. More to come.

I've been using this setup for 4 months now and it works great for me. It transports nice due to casters and handles on the 1510.

I wanted to keep the pelican case waterproof after all, so here is mine. The plexi base fits together to hold all the parts in place. Nothing jumbles or falls out of place. The base plate also separates the intake (right hole) and exhaust air (left hole) from the powersupplies.

Best of all I can take it all apart and the pelican case is intact. Nothing is bolted or drilled into the case.

Very clean.
Where do I find the surface mount female + & - connectors?

Here is a sneak peak at my deck with my logo I use for all my social media. This is all going in a nanuck 940 case and is all being done by Rotarcraftrc.com which is joe and kyle Cashwell from RotarywingRC. I am suppose to pick it up from Bert Kammerer next week and I am really excited about the finished project. More pics to come soon

Made quite a bit of progress last night. Drilled and installed two 80mm fans along with a power switch for them tied into the 12volt rail of my power supply. Drilled vent holes in the lower tray for airflow to the PS as well as a cord exit out the back of the case.

Going to work on the upper tray today and install the hinges for the plexiglass charging platforms . . I'm about 40% complete.

I had this case in my garage forever. Never used it or the tools inside. I figured it would make a great custom charging station box

Default old fashion meets new technology

Okay, I think i'm done. I am very excited to use this new setup. High power charging is a whole new world for me and it's going to change the way I enjoy this hobby from now on. Best part is there is no setup! Open the lid, and plug the power cable coming from the back into the wall.

When I first started I wasnt sure it would all fit into the box!!!

New charging station (308duo 1800w PSU)


1800watt PSU installed in the lower section. Power cable out a hole drilled in the rear of the case.


Cooling fan installation



Fans Installed with a small switch in the upper left to power them separately. Also installed fold out plexiglass charging "trays" to hold my batteries while charging



Squid cables ALL FIT


Cord storage. Im running a Y cord to both my PS units because its much cleaner. I have about 2 feet of cord tucked inside ready for use. I always bring a power strip with me to the field too.

Ready to do some work! No setup required, everything stays plugged in and left in the case. just pull the power cable out the back and plug her in.



Final product

I'd say the best looking, old case I've ever seen. That is one unique design and I'm very impressed! Good job man.

Yup. Gotta make sure they don't slip off onto the bench while charging. Took me about 8 hours to do all this. And of course being wood, I only had one shot at it lol
