Details

All the great features and intuitive operating system you loved about the GT500 - doubled!

Delivering 500W per side at up to 20A charge rates, the GT500's power is matched only by its ease of use. No more balance boards - the built in ports will accept 2S-8S JST-XH connections natively. No more scrolling through pages and pages of information on a two-line screen - the backlit graphical LCD screen gives you all the information you need, when you need. Start a charge in moments - and then go ahead and start another one on channel 2!

Pretty sweet, but make sure you buy balance board and balance cableReview by Nate

Ok, so I like the charger so far. Haven't been able to charge anything yet because it doesn't come with a balance board or balance cable. I didn't think that'd be a big deal but it doesn't fit any of the cables I already own from numerous other chargers including Hyperion, thunder power and Icharger. So apparently it takes a special proprietary balance cable/board. hopefully the Ones I ordered a few nights ago will work when they arrive. Don't really know for sure yet.

It has a super short input lead with an EC5 connector on it. I would have preferred a longer cable without a plug, but that's no big deal.

The menu and settings and options seem pretty easy to use and quick to view and adjust. I like it, I just need to figure out the stupid balance cable thing. A minor issue, on an otherwise sweet charger.

ProgressiveRC Comment: Please note that the GT500 has a special type of JST-XH plug on the face of the charger that allows for direct connection of JST-XH type batteries. No balance board is required for standard battery balance leads. (Posted on 9/8/2017)
