Default 20-30A 300W AC/DC charger

Looking for a 300 Watt /20-30A AC/DC chargerwith built in power to charger mutiple 2s/5000 mh lipos in parallel. Narrowed down to the Thunder Power 0620AC 300W/20A and the Turnigy Reaktor 300/20, but both seem to be discontinued. I can get either, but would rather have a newer model. I'd like to be able to charge 4-6, 2s 5000mh lipos at once and am looking charger like above with parallel board and single charging port. Want built in Power source and also DC for field use. With the new dual chargers, say a 300w/20A total, can you use one side to charger the 20A/300Watts and other side unused?

Generally, a dual output charger will be rated for what all of its outputs can give you combined. For example, my UP120 Duo is rated for 240w, which is 120w per channel. Essentially, the unit is 2 120w chargers sharing a single power supply. What you can do though if you need to charge one really big battery is bridge the two outputs to make them into one charger. That's a simple matter of soldering up a connector, assuming the charger is bridgeable (I think most are).

Yes. Some chargers have power distribution and will allow all wattage to be diverted to one channel of the charger.

You might take a look at the X2 High Power, 120W per port on AC power. There is also the D7 charger which is fixed at 200 watts per port on either AC or DC power.

i'm running a skyrc d100 for a good portion of my charging... if you run on a DC supply.. 100w/channel.

i've built some large 4s paks for emergency and radio work . 4s40P (890mah cells) so.. 35AH and another set of 800mah 4s40p ... im using the isdt q6... 300w supplied with a lsr 350-24 supply. legit charger.... noisy.. but a work horse...
