"The Surface Sidekick" 500W Combo
Heading to the track with your high-capacity packs? Don't leave home without the Surface Sidekick.
We've taken the Surface combo and made it even better: we made it portable. As the name implies, this combo is ideal for surface applications: cars, trucks, buggies - anything where you're running low-voltage, high-capacity packs. Got a bunch of 3S 6000mAh batteries for your off-roader, or 2S 8000s for your buggy? You don't need a thousand-watt power supply to get those charged up, but you do need fast charge rates if you don't want to spend all day charging!
This combo combines the 306B and the PRC500 power supply, giving you enough power to hit a 30 amp charge rate on packs up to 3S, which means less time charging, and more time driving. With everything tucked neatly into our ultra-portable Sidekick case, with all the accessories you need to get going, this combo is the ultimate pit crew.
