I remember some folks in rcgroups saying that 2S doesn't need much balancing because it's only 2 cells, but for 3S and up balancing should be done.

I would disagree with that statement. Many of the 2s batteries we tested were .1 to .3 volts out of balance within a few cycles or came that way. Depends a lot on your charger profile how quickly this can cause damage. Some chargers start reducing the current around 8.1v and sneak up to 8.4 at lower charger rates. Some chargers apply full current right to 8.4v and then reduce current. In the latter case one cell can be receiving full current at over voltage conditions. In fact the lower cell never reaches 4.2V and the problem is compounded on the discharge side due the massive demands of a BL motor. During our testing batteries that tended to go out of balance with use also tended to loose performance quicker.

Who needs a lipo discharger? I discharge my lipos in my car
Mr. Tekin: what we need is a good single cell lipo charger, that way there is no need for a balancer.

If you want a reliable balance charger that is not made in china, give this a try

http://shop.radiocontrol-sports.com/...productId=1291

Or even the AC/DC version for convenience

http://shop.radiocontrol-sports.com/...productId=1292

Where is the $15 shipping cost? Is that overnight express mail? I've placed 2 orders now with Ultraline, both were USPS priority mail at $6.60 each order. Cant complain about those shipping prices!
BTW, I took my pack to the track and a guy walked over to my pit table and looked at my pack. He said right away its a Core 3200, cause he had one. I took it out and handed it to him, and said "nope, its a yeah racing pack" I then proceded to tell him the price, when his jaw hit the ground! :lol So as it turns out this is the same pack under the Core branding as well, just a decal change. So yes, the core adapters aparently work to. I bought mine from maxamps for a hyperion LBA10 balancer.
