Hello! I'm new at R/C airplanes... Just bought a second hand Parkzone T-28 Trojan; just like new. I have not flown it yet (not flown anything yet). The battery that came with it is a PKZ1030 11.1V 2200mAh 3 cell Li-Po and the field charger is a Parkzone 2-3 cell balancing Li-Po charger, model LP2000-3. Input is 10.5-15.0V DC 3 amp.
Question: To avoid sitting in the car while the battery is being charged through the cigarette lighter, can I use a regular car battery charger set to the 2 amp charge that is plugged into a wall power outlet, and connect my field battery charger to it, using a battery clip power adapter? Is a manual car battery charger better that the auto shut-off ones?
I know that A/C plugin chargers exist but I find that the cost is somewhat high. I can get a regular car battery charger on sale for less than $30.00 Cdn. this week.
Please hurry with some comments, guys...
Thank you very much!
