    I keep reading old threads with old charger info. I'm desperately trying to find a charger for my 7.2v gen 3 cells. People point me to threads that have old unavailable stuff - my local hobby place says they have things, but need to know charge rate and more info. Can anyone pint me to something relevant today? Thanks in advance!!!

    The easiest way is to buy a reconditioning kit that’s a grid charger. It’ll charge and balance the entire pack of 28 modules at one time.

    hobby chargers take much longer, usually a few modules at a time. You also have to take special care to cool them and clamp them tight while charging, so they don’t expand
