Default Lipo charger

I am looking for a charger that will charge lipo and NiMh batteries. What are you guys using and how much do it cost?

Default Charger

This is what I have been using. It doesn't have a balancer in it, but it works great!! Will only do lipo up to 3 cells.

Good luck, Matt

I have been using a Hyperion 606i charger for awhile now and it works very well. It's ac/dc so no extra power supply and it balance charges. It will charge lipo, nimh, nicad, life, and pb 12v batteries. They are usually around $130 but well worth the $$. I lie them so much I have 2 of them.

^^^^That's the charger that I have been using for the past year and it works great, just wish it had more than a 5a charge rate, might have to pick one more up, I like the fact that it is AC.

i use the racers edge charger. it works great. and it has the lipo balancer with it. but its pretty much the same thing as the Thunder AC6 that someone posted above. the ac6 is about 100 bucks cheaper tho lol
