Default Lipo Charger

I left my lipo connected but turned my vehicle off. The lipo battery in my car went to 2.9 volts. Since my charger auto detects the voltage it will not start charging my battery because the voltage is less than 3v. I had this problem once before and a guy put my lipo on trickle at .1A and it lets me get above 3v.

Does anyone know of a inexpensive charger that will let me manual charge my lipos ???

Hi,

"Safety Charge Mode > In the event that one or more cells within a battery pack are damaged, the charger will automatically invoke Safety Charge mode. This could occur if the total pack voltage is low (the battery has been drained too low), or if one or more cells are below a safe operating voltage. The charger is capable of rejuvinating most of these battery packs safely and automatically."

FMA Direct is well known in the flying world for quality. That said, its a real bang for buck chager given its abilities.

I saw this charger, but 4 amps is kind of low considering most of my packs at 6000 MAH. This is going to be the charger I get if I can't find one that charges at a higher amperage. Also I don't care for the clip conectors.
