Rage RC 35W 50W Charger Review

Rage RC 35W & 50W Charger Spotlight

While some bashers like using the latest high-zoot electronics, some prefer basic units that get the job done. Catering to that crowd are a new pair of battery chargers from Rage RC. If you haven’t heard, Rage RC is an affordable line of rc products from the folks at HRP Distributing and we’ve been testing their 35W and 50W chargers for several weeks now. How do they stack up?

First off, here are some specifications and features-

Rage RC 50W

Max charge rate- 5 amps
Max LiPo cell count- 6S
Different types of cells supported- LiPo, NiMH
Balance port- JST-XH
Connector type- T style/Deans
AC & DC power
Built in failsafe functions
Automatic detection of battery cell count and capacity
Automatically sets charge output rate up to 1.5C

The Verdict-

We used both chargers on a variety of different batteries. From NiMH stick packs that we used in RTR trucks, to a big 3S MaxAmps LiPo, to the small Spektrum 1300mAh 2S LiPo that is the receiver pack in one of our review trucks, both chargers worked well without any problems.

We found both chargers exceptionally easy to use. After touching a button to select the cell type, all we had to to do was hold the button down to start charging. Both chargers automatically set the charge rate, something that helps keep things simple, and a feature that you won’t find on very many other chargers. All the packs we charged with the Rage chargers seemed to perform well and we generally had a good experience while using them.
