I have read that it is common with the Rad Powers included charger to get hot while charging (I am still waiting for delivery of my 2 Radmissions so haven't seen how true this is) so I was wondering if the Luna cycle charger does not have this problem, also would I be correct in thinking a DC Power 5.5X2.1mm Male Barrel To XT60 Female No Wires Adapter would be what is needed to use the luna cycle charger on Rad batteries.


Getting hot is no big deal - not many reports of chargers dying due to heat.  Just use it and see.  The back of my name brand LCD monitor is at 60 degrees C or 140 degrees F for the last 10 years - 40 hours a week or more - no problems at all.

Don't use a charger and adapter if you don't know what you are doing.  Shorting a battery will ruin it in less than 1 second. If you are lucky you blow the fuse. If you are unlucky, the battery is ruined. Many people have stuck a metal key into the charge port by mistake and fry the battery.


Thanks for your reply, I was probably overthinking it I remember when I was into rc racing my charger always  got hot with no problems but that was 30 years ago and NiCad but similar principle< and I know that with an adapter I would have to certain the polarity was right, though there are other chargers that wouldn't require adapter but if the stock one works why change it
