OLD THREAD IS OLD! Anyway, if you can live with a 5A max charge rate, this charger is the sh*t, especially for $150.

And since I know some of you will ask about variable cutoff voltage so you can get your precious 8.44...

CALABRATING VOLTAGE READING:
with charger off press and hold down START AND DEC button turn on charger after a few seconds it will go into a adjust mode then you connect a battery to the charger lead with a volt meter on it also showing the battery voltage (example say volt meter shows 7.2V for the battery you then can adjust the value on the left to match it and then press enter to save your settings.
You can do this to all 4 ports to make them all the same).

If you are looking for a charger I recommend using the Heli forums as they discuss lipo chargers performance in detail all the time.

The icharger 206b looks like the best thing out there, small size and 20A charge it should be good for the new generation lipos but my preference is Hyperion, they have a better reputation for reliability according to the accounts of owners in the forums. I've had an 0606i AC/DC for a year, racing two to three times a week and it has performed brilliantly. Its well made and no software/calibration issues.

The Duo 3 looks great but the twin outputs are not fully independent so I went with the 720 net. Solidly made, 20A charge, 10A discharge, twin fans, USB, firmware updateable, good features.

8.44 volts won't matter much any more. Most ruling associations and even some tracks independentily have announced 8.40 limits for next season.
