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.

common sense rc has the balance lead for the turnigy ,it depends which battery you are using .i just got the lead for orion batts and the charger balances well.
