Default Team Losi Lipo Converter

Do these things actually need to be plugged up to a charger or can you just plug them into a power supply? Also, has anyone actually tested them out to see how they work? $35 for a 6s 8amp conversion sounds like a pretty good deal if you don't need to actually plug it up to a charger.

I would spend an extra 15$ and get a charger that is designed to charge LiPo batteries....not a "adapter" that only works with 5 specific chargers & 7 specific batteries as listed.

* This is NOT a charger! This is an adapter to be used with your existing "Approved" charger

Only the following approved NiCd or NiMH chargers should be used:

o Dynamite - DYN4036 - Prophet Plus™ AC/DC Peak Charger
o LRP – 41550 - Pulsar Competition **
o Novak – 4490 – Millennium Pro **
o Orion Avionics - ORI62200 - Advanced Flight Charger ##
o Much More - MM-CTXC – CTX Cell Master V1.0

Only use the Lithium Charge Converter with the following approved LiPo battery packs:

o Losi LiPo - LOSB9810 - 11.1V 2400mAh 3C LiPo TxPk: Z1, Helios
o Losi LiPo - LOSB9811 - 11.1V 2400mAh 3C LiPo TxPk: M11, MX-3
o Losi LiPo - LOSB9820 - 7.4V 2000mAh 2C LiPo Rx Pack
o Thunder Power - THP21002SPL – 2100mAh 2C 7.4V LiPo
o Thunder Power - THP20703SX – 2070mAh 3S 11.1V Li-Po
o Thunder Power - THP20704SX – 2070mAh 4S 14.8V LiPo
o Thunder Power - THP20705SX – 2070mAh 5S 18.5V LiPo

I mean its pretty cool, I think its like $40, you use your old charger and this goes in line and it charges your lipo, I've used mine for a few months and never had an issue.
