It is built in... the charger ALWAYS balances while charging. Also, the Scorpion is a LiPo ONLY charger.

Other chargers like this Hyperion http://www.maxamps.com/Eos6i-AC-DC.htm
can charge... balance... or balance/charge and they work with other battery types as well

I have had mine for about a year now and it has worked flawlessly on my two Orion 3200 packs that I use in my T2R TC.

I love the Scorpion charger... simple, cheap, reliable!
