I have done what Stehl is suggesting, 4 times, with great results. I use banana plugs so it costs me a couple of bucks for each one. I am able to run two chargers on each PS. I have not charged LIPO's yet, so do not know if my PS's have the amps for that (around 12).

The only other thing you might need is a balancer for your lipos.I suggest getting the Hyperion AC/DC charger with built in balance.Its cheaper and saves room in your pit area.

Don't get me wrong, the ice is a great charger (I have one myself)but for what comes in the Hyperion and the room/money it save it's a great buy.

It depends on the lipo that you buy if you need a balancer for it. The Orion and Checkpoint lipos do not need a balancer as they have a tap built in to charge each cell individually.
