I would have liked to see an option for "heard of BUMP system but not interested". People have begun performing quite a bit of parallel charging and my understanding is that the BUMP system does not accommodate this. Your quad system sound nice but I feel it could use a bit more wattage now that larger power systems have come down in prices. We still actively promote the PowerLab line of chargers to all newcomers at the field.

I have a Powerlab 6 and absolutely love it. Buying it and a parallel charge board was one of the best RC decisions I have made. Also, I do know some high power Heli guys that are always looking for a more powerful charging setup. They already are using your dual PL8. But that is not me.

For me, even the powerlab 6 is overkill. I am a fixed wing guy and the largest batteries I currently use are 4S-4000. I probably max out at around 300 watts of charging power. (4 4S 4000s in parallel charging at 1C) Also, right now I find myself using my parkflyer sized planes the most. These are in the 1500-2600 3S battery size.

So... If I'd be in the market for a new charger, I guess I'd be looking for a full feature 4S 500 Watt minimum system. I am willing to spend some more for a more accurate, higher quality, and safer charger. Parallel charging for me is easier than multiple charges. I am not sold on needing the bump system. It's easy enough for me to set the charge rate myself.

My only quibble with my PL-6 is the display. I'd prefer a larger screen with more status information on each screen. But it's really a rather minor concern.

This is just my thoughts and where I am today...

The Bump Controller is actually perfect for parallel charging packs and makes the whole process much simpler once you have your packs programmed with the tags.
