Default Hyperion EOS 1210i Battery Charger - Is this a good charger?

I am in the market for a charger. Is the Hyperion EOS 1210i Battery Charger
a good charger? I want it mainly for Lipo's. Has anyone used it? If I get it, I was going to get it at Bishop Power Products.

Does anyone have experience with this company?

Thanks...

That is one of the best LiPo chargers available. It is the only charger that in combo with some Hyperion balancers you can charge 2 batterys at once. And it also will charge the new A123 cells that may prove to be even better than the current LiPo's on the market.
Another place to shop for these items is Max-Amps.com. They will have a complete line of Hyperion products.

What are these new A123 cells? Are they lipos?

THe A123 cells are LiPo like but with different chemistry.


Inherently safe chemistry will not explode or catch fire
Fast charge capable - reach 100% state-of-charge in 15 minutes.
up to 60C burst (138 Amps)

Thanks Exterminator for your replies. Enjoy your free T-shirt.

Does anyone have an opinion about the charger and Bishop Power Products?

Thanks again.

I just got one but I have only played with it a little as I am still waiting on my B44. It appears to be very good. B-P-P.com has the best price on a combo with the balancer. I got mine from them & their service was good. A123 cells are lithium magnesium cells and are supposed to be very robust & safe but they do have a lower cell voltage and are not the normal Nimh or Li-po size.
