I use a Hyperion EOS 0606i AC/DC , will charge just about all types of R/C batteries. Charge, balance and discharge. Nice charger very simple to use. Charge reciever batteries and my LiPo starter box batteries with it , works great. just ordered two Reedy ASC638 LiFi 1700mAh reciever batteries for next season but haven't used them yet.

Well cheers guys. A lot of good useful info there. Still not sure what to do. I will chat with my racing buddy who also runs a hobby shop. I'm sure he will sell me something new

Has anyone tried the Pro Tek lipo that King used for the worlds? If so, are they good? I run a Pro Tek NiMH at the moment and it has been great.

You are right. There are many high voltage servos on the market.

Like this one -> http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...-Digital-Servo

I sdon't feel the need to upgrade all my servos to HV even if they are faster and have more torque. I prefer running LiFe

the reduced life was more so for the Non HV rated servo's like the Hitec 5955......Anything HV should last years to come if they've done their homework properly.
