Venom is proud to announce their latest game changing solution to safely charging your LiPo battery packs. Meet the Venom Stronghold 25amp DC charger! The Stronghold is the first battery charger of its kind that combines cutting edge technology and charging safety in one package. Not only does the Stronghold offer a full 500 watt circuit with charging rates up to 25 amps, but the attached Stronghold charging containment unit improves safety while charging and discharging your packs. If you already have your own charger, Venom is also offering the Stronghold Containment System box separately!
Venom Stronghold 25 Amp Battery Charger
The Stronghold also allows you to keep track of your LiPO packs performance and condition 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 LiPO and LiFe battery packs.
This robust charging solution features durable stamped aluminum construction which aides in heat dissipation and was designed for years of real life use, unlike cheap plastic chargers. Our Factory Team Pilots asked for this DC charger to allow a wide variety of input voltages up to 26 volts, compatible with today’s high voltage, low current power supplies.
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 our Stronghold Solo Battery Charging Containment System.
A hobby industry first, the Stronghold Containment System improves the safety of charging and discharging LiPO batteries up to 60-watt hours. The Stonghold containment system features a self extinguishing, shatterproof, polycarbonate window and ambient LED lights inside for easily viewing the battery during charge and discharge sequences. 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 smoke and fumes in a controlled manner, while helping to contain flames and debris.
