Hi all, I've found a 12V charger to suit the Lithium Polymer cells of the QED PL2.

This is a low cost unit that I have tested successfully with my PL2 unit. I know Howard is also testing this unit as well. It's not an official QED accessory, and will require the charging cable supplied with your PL2 to work.

The unit accepts a DC 5.5/2.1mm plug.

A cigarette lighter socket adaptor isn't included and will need to purchased separately if this how you want to connect it. Please read the safety notice in the instructions, and as always when charging lithium polymer cells you do so at your own risk.

Manual, with safety notice. https://cdn-global-hk.hobbyking.com/med … 677X58.pdf

hopefully that goes well, but at $5.10 ($US I assume) I would be a bit concerned about either the safety when charging, &/or the life of the unit.
It would be a good idea to keep an eye on it & check/feel for overheating or any issues, both in the batteries & the unit.
