Orion Carbon 3200
6.4 Amps (2C)
Duratrax ICE

For safety most recommend 1C charging. Plus the ICE has to be tricked into doing it.

The Much More cell master will charge Li-Ion at .1 to 1.0 amps

The Much More Silent charger will do Li-Po up to 4 amps (last I remember)

I personaly got a Triton Jr and for Li-Po it is the easy-est to use and will charge up to 5 amps best of all it is just $80.00.

What amps are best: what ever the charger tells you to charge them at(most chargers lock in a amp level when you enter the lipo capacity)

what chargers: which ever one you have that goes at least up to 5amp. And if you don't have one already, Multiplex, Duratrax, Orion, Triton Jr. are all good options. Charging Lipo isn't the art form than charging NiMh was. All the lipo chargers charge the same way, CC-CV. No tricks, no bells, no whistles.

Stu,

Carbon 3600,

LRP Pulsar 3 @ 3.6amps (which is 1c).

It does allow you to charge upto 10amp... which is 2C for a 5000mah pack.

HiH

Go to the electronics forum and read the reviews. Most people say its a waste of money. It only charges to 90%, works with a limited # of chargers and batteries (mostly receiver packs).
