Default Blinkie Balancer

I'm starting to get into 1/10 electric (currently run 1/8 nitro); when I was into 450 size heli's all that was necessary to balance lipo was a blinkie balancer.

Here it is:

What do guys think? Is that enough, are there any downfalls to using that?

I use one on my 2S 4000 25c and 2S 5000 30c batteries. I like it.

I noticed with my 2500 mah heli packs it took a LITTLE longer to charge. With the these high mah packs the cars are using I wasn't sure if it was not used at the track.

I'm using a Blinky on my 4S 5000 Losi pack for my 8ight E.
No problems over the past 2 1/2 months.
