For the money, you can't beat the Hyperion 606i -- After 20 years of NiCd and NiMh cells, I finally went LiPo, and got this charger and I love it! Charges almost anything, Has AC/DC capability, and it balance charges my LiPo's EVERYTIME, keeping them performing great!

Orion , Peak , and believe track power . A paper came in the Orion and Peak boxes stating this . A few guys at the track that bought trackpower and another brand asked me why they say this . I do not know why these companies say this , but must be a reason . And no they do not say to use their chargers instead .

It’s my understanding that the MRC chargers do not, or did not, have accurate enough voltage measuring. In the day with peak chargers you only needed a relative voltage, didn’t need to be accurate. Lipos demand an accurate absolute voltage measurement.
