In my opinion if you are going to spend the $130 to $140 that most places want for it you would be much better off getting the Hyperion 0606i AC/DC charger. It has a balancer and can charge at 6 amps. Its also really easy to use.

I second that^^^!

I bought that OFNA charger and upgraded to the Hyperion Duo one week later. It just took a week to realize that I bought the wrong charger yo grow with my future needs and didn't want to limit myself.

Looks very good for what you are using it for. Nice price tag too.

However if you do change over to LiPo, most will reccomend upgrading to a balance charger that can charge LiPo over 2.5 amps.

Since the Vision Peak Ultra is limited to 2.5 amp charge rate for LiPo's, it would only be good for charging a 2500mAh or less capacity battery. Most packs you run as a main LiPo pack will be more than 2500mAh and that charger won't keep up.

But since you only have NiMh type batteries, your good to go!!!
