One of my racing buds has one and it's working fine. I haven't tried it, but I think I'll get one just as a backup because I have a bunch of chargers in my stable but only 2 lipo capable right now.

I want to try it with one of my old Tekin 112a chargers...

I don't trust it. Also, you still need a charger and it only charges to 90% capacity. I would prefer to use a Duratrax ICE charger. Its a lot more money, but is a very nice multi use charger. We use a Astro Blinky to balance the LiPo while charging. The Multiplex units seem to false peak and fail after a while, so stay away from those too.
