Define what you consider cheap?? Would also help to know what you are wanting to charge, 2S, 4S, 1500mah to 8000mah??

Accucel-6 is about $40, there are some others that are about half that, but take a very long time to complete a charge.

I've got two Turnigy Accucel-6 and they're quite nice. $37 + shipping from Hong Kong (Hobbycity.com) - they are on eBay too but tend to be in the $50 range. They do Lipo, NiMH and other. Includes built-in balancer. It's 50watt total output - so that's about 10v under 5A maximum. Of course, you can do 11.1v at 3A or something like that.

Most stuff is made in China and most of the sub-$60 Lipo chargers seem to be this or very similar model circuit board.

This is an example of what I was referring to -

Its mainly intended for lower capacity lipo (< 1500mah). If you tried a 5000mah on it, you'd be looking at more than 2hrs charge time.
