Onyx 260 AC/DC Dual Touch Balancing Charger
Control two chargers from a single color touch screen!
5 Year Limited Warranty
With the Onyx 260, you don't need old-school push-buttons to program; just gentle fingertip pressure and its brilliant 3.2" color touch screen. Touch it and you have instant access to two chargers with identical capabilities; touch it again, and you can choose battery chemistry, peak or balance charging, set up for charging one pack at a time or two at once…and view charging data the way you prefer to see it. You can have it as simple numbers against a colorful backdrop, or as points on a high-visibility color graph. For the modeler who wants the latest in programming ease and charging versatility, there's only one charger to consider: the Onyx 260.
- Lets you set up, operate and monitor data on a single, 3.2" color touch screen.
- Charge single lithium cells, peak 1-15 NiCd/NiMH cells and balance charge 2S-6S lithium packs.
- Offer a charge jack for 4-, 5- and 8-cell radio packs.
- Includes storage for up to 10 battery charging routines per output.
- Lets you customize sound cues, text color and backlighting to your preferences.
- Includes 110VAC power lead, plus a DC power lead with alligator clips for easy hookup.
- Feature a compact 60W AC power supply and 0.1-6A fast charge rates.
- Come with a 2-6S balancing board and both standard and Star Plug adapters.
The Onyx 260 literally puts the best in dual-output charging and programming ease at your fingertips. Its 3.2-inch color touch screen not only eliminates buttons and knobs; it gives you the power to review charging data as numbers, or in context, as points on a colorful graph. With its 0.1-6A charge rates, it has the raw power needed to peak charge up to 15 nickel-based cells or balance charge up to 6S lithium cells. In addition, the Onyx 260 also gives the modeler the ability to customize text colors, sound cues and charging routines.
The Star Plug is fully compatible with the polarized power plug modelers use most and a "next-gen" advance in connector design. It's easier to grip during installation and removal, holds tighter in-between and prevents loose wires from shorting out. Look for it wherever you see the stylized star!
