Default LiPo Battery, Charger, Balancer Combo

I'm looking for a good combination to use in my JRXS Type R.

I was looking at the Losi charger because it had a balancing port built in that I could use for the LiPo Rx pack in my 8ight.

Does anyone know of a 7.4V stick type Lipo that would be compatible with this charger?

Any other suggestions of what to look at?

Thanks!

Packs that will work for sure on the Type R...

CORE5000 mah pack, Trackpower 4900, Orion 4800...

Chargers: Use the Scorpion 2s charger from FMADirect/Kokam, which comes with balancer for about $80...great charger and can charge your lipo to 90% capacity in about 20 minutes, as a built in safe feature, and can go up to 10Amps.

Or you can always get the ICE charger from Duratrax for about $100, but it doesnt come with any balancing cables...you'll need to purchase your own balancer from the Lipo manufacturer you go with.

I've been using the 06 series, and I love them

I'm actually looking at picking up the duo in a few weeks

The Hyperions carry a full line of balance port adapters to work with their chargers
