Default MRC SuperBrain 989

Can anyone please post their comments about the MRC SuperBrain 989 Lipo charger: http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...&I=LXLTW4&P=ML

Just wondering if you can charge Orion Lipo packs with this? I belive MR. Black from Orion posted that this charger or the previous model had problems charging their Orion Lipos...I'm looking for a nice Ac/Dc lipo charger and for the price this MRC charger can do it all for cheap...I just hope someone has tested them and have good things to report...

I have used the MRC 989 for charging Orion lipos for more than 6 months now. I have had no issues. The MRC that apparently had issues was a different model. Back when I looked into this issue Orion did not have the opportunity to test the MRC 989 but Orion chose not to endorse any MRC charger with their product. There is more to the story than that but that is the quick and dirty version. I do not know where Orion stands on MRC chargers as of today and I donít really care because my 989 has worked flawlessly over and over again.

I have found the 989 to be easy to use. The charger is a little bulky but the power supply is small. I like that it is packaged with the power supply and temp gauge. Iím very happy with mine. It has been a good purchase for me.
