    Charging battery packs.

    I need some help here guys...the Lafayette has four five cell battery packs, each made up of 3700a/h cells. I need a charger for them, preferably to be able to charge all twenty cells together and from a mains supply.

    Any ideas, chaps?

    What cell type, Richard (NiMH etc)

    I think you may have difficulty in charging them all at once? How many days of operation do you need anyway? (Smiley Face - if had one on my screen!)

    Problem is sorted David, thank you...Ramesh has exactly the same boat, he recommended me to the Graupner Multilader, which I now have on order from Sussex Model Centre, should be here tomorrow.

    It will charge the whole lot in one go, which is very useful.
