"The Surface" 500W Combo

 

Want to take advantage of the iCharger 306B's blinding fast 30 amp charge rate, but don't need its full 1000W output? Head for "The Surface."

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. Also included are a balance board and charge lead of your choice to get you up and running.

I got the combo shipped to my apo a little over a week after order and it was awesome to have such a stout charging system. even with the problem that I had after the second charge I trust that progressive's replacement will work. I am chalking it up as a fluke because I haven't ever heard of the issue and neither had they. I would gladly recommend this combo to anyone or anything from progressive at that.

Purchased this for parallel charging of multiple 2s and 3s lipo mostly and so far it handles all I throw at it. As fast as I want to charge (safely) and has no problems keeping up. Nice setup for a fair price. Thanks progressive RC keep doing what you do. Oh and I also had the wrong power supply shipped the first time. I called and they shipped out the correct one imediatly with no hastle whatsoever and even included return shipping lable with new PS so it was fast and I'm not outta pocket. Very nice. They will spoil you in thinking this is how everyone does it. Great to deal with and thanks again. (Posted on 4/16/2013)

the power supply they sent me did not work, I had to buy another

ProgressiveRC Comment: One in a thousand power supplies arrives with damage in shipping, more often for international destinations such as this. The failure rate is exceedingly low and we offered to repair or replace the unit, but we have not heard back from the customer. (Posted on 1/18/2013)
