Venom is pleased to bring you a new game changing solution to your charging needs with their Stronghold 25 Amp DC Battery Charger; the world’s first charger that combines improved charging safety and cutting-edge technology in one package. This revolutionary charger allows charge rates up to an astonishing 25amps and offers a full 500-watt circuit. The panel features an easy to use intuitive programming menu and an easy-to-read backlit LCD screen.
The Stronghold also allows you to keep track of your LiPo packs condition and performance with the new IR-Mode internal resistance test. IR-Mode tests each cell individually and provides single cell and total pack resistance values so you can see the real-time condition of your LiFe and LiPo battery packs.
This robust charging solution features durable stamped aluminum construction which was designed for years of real life use, unlike cheap plastic chargers and aides in heat dissipation. Venom’s Factory Team Pilots asked for this DC charger to be compatible with today’s high voltage, low current power supplies and to allow a wide variety of input voltages up to 26 volts.
For most companies that would have been enough, but the engineers at Venom took it a step further and combined the feature rich Stronghold Charger with their Stronghold Solo Battery Charging Containment System.
A hobby industry first, the Venom Stronghold Containment System improves the safety of discharging and charging LiPo batteries up to 60-watt hours. The Stronghold containment system features ambient LED lights inside for easily viewing the battery during charge and discharge sequences and a self extinguishing, shatterproof, polycarbonate window. No external charge or balance wires are needed, since all outputs are mounted to a baffle between the charger and the Stronghold Containment System. This results in a cleaner and safer charging setup.
Should a catastrophic battery failure occur, specially designed venting will help dissipate fumes and smoke in a controlled manner, while helping to contain flames and debris. Includes:
