 The X1 power source is 11-18v DC and therefore perfectly suited for being powered directly from a typical 12v power source such as battery, car or solar. The Hitec chargers output uses banana jacks, which I am not a fan of. The charger kit included some common adapters for RC car type battery connections, but it was easy enough to adapt to Anderson Powerpole connections from the banana plugs and then use the APP plugs for my field batteries. For car batteries and such that I do not have an APP pigtail on, I have an adapter that goes from APP to gator clips for easy temporary connection.  The X1 power source is 11-18v DC and therefore perfectly suited for being powered directly from a typical 12v power source such as battery, car or solar.

-Now, for the final option I have.. Using the X1 Pro to charge individual or multiple cells. I have not personally done this, because I do not have a battery sled to hold the cells. Assuming you have a sled, there is no reason this charger couldn't charge these cells as well. +You should be able to use the X1 Pro to charge individual or multiple cells in series. I have not personally done this, because I do not have a battery sled to hold the cells. Assuming you have a sled, there is no reason this charger couldn't charge these cells as well since it is designed for NiCd/NiMH battery packs in series.
