Default thunder power 610 charger cooler/organizer

I got bored when it was windy for a couple of days and built this cooler/organizer for my two thunder power 610 chargers. I went a little overboard with the fans so i had to put in resistors to bring the fan speed and noise down. It can either go low speed fan or full speed fan.

instead of 110 degrees when charging, a nice cool 85

I know these charges did not need the fan but i didnt like how hot they got charging my batteries.

It also holds the chargers and keeps the wires neat.

I posted this for guys who were looking for somethng to do when it is too windy to fly.

Total cost of parts from a surplus store about $35

if i was to do it again i would put in one smaller fan.

i know "what a total dork!!"
