Okay I think I know the answer to this question but before I buy I want to make sure. I am building a small train consist for my grand nephew. It will be RC/Battery. I have a 14.8V lithium ion battery pack in a battery car. I want him to have a simple plug and play charger that will just plug into the battery car and charge it up and then he can plug it into the loco and let her run.
Now I bought a Tenergy smart charger and that is really all I am familiar with. But I don’t want to give him something he has to think about or program to make work when he will only have one train with one battery to charge. On Amazon I have seen chargers that are basically like a phone wall charger. It is a 16.8V 2A charger, with LED indicating charging (red) and full charge (green). Automatically stops charging when fully charged. I am assuming this type of charger is what I would want to provide him for his charging needs?
Another question I think I know the answer to, can I use the same plug that plugs the battery into the locomotive to also plug it into the charger for charging? I assume I can cut off the end of the charger I buy and wire in the mated connector to the one on the battery car.
