I've this charger and works great.
But... the hype is on the Lipo cells.
Did some one tested it with the lipo?
It works?

Any help is appreciated!
Thanks

One thing to be aware of is that this charger does not have a "lock lockout" feature. If you have packs that tend to false peak, you will be sitting there pressing the start button repeatedly.

I bought one, used it for one pack, couldn't find the "long lockout" setting in the manual and called Futaba. When they told me it didn't have that feature, I sold the charger instantly.

This may not be as much of an issue with the current high-end NiMH packs, but what I needed it for was spec packs that false peaked. So I dumped it.
