Thanks I’ll have a look
If anyone is able to share any links to the DC PSU’s they are using that would be really helpful
I also spoke to Hobbymate who were very helpful and said they would recommend a quality DC power supply between 24-30v with a minimum power of 750 watts
They also said because my existing DC supply is limited to 200W then it is not powerful enough to allow the charger to charge a 6S battery (25.2v) at 10 amps.
Here’s how it works:
amps = power (watts) / volts
amps = 200 watts / 25.2 volts
amps = 7.94
Therefore, based on 200 watts maximum power output from your supply, you cannot charge a 6S battery over 7.94 amps. Now allowing for some inefficiency in the power and voltage conversion, you might be able to increase the charge current to 6-7amps. It also depends if your power supply is rated accurately.
If you want to charge the battery at the maximum capability of the D6 charger (325 watts per channel), then you will need a different power supply.
amps = 325 watts / 25.2 volts
amps = 12.9 maximum charging capability on a 6s battery
Anyway thought I would share this in case anyone else who is a electronics novice like me finds it useful in the future
