I actually still have mine, going strong for 7 years now and use it with an external Lipo balancer, works great, but i admit, it's slow to charge compared to the new stuff that use the balance port. Only issue are the buttons getting...unresponsive... i need to rebuild it

I have one of these as well. Awesome charger. I can't imagine ever needing anything else. $80 in the US warehouse.

GFX 35 may also be a good option. You may try for the same.

They are not made anymore. You have to pick them up used, and if it hasn't been done already, need to send it back to CE to update to lipo capability. Because they are so good, they still command a pretty penny, and are not small. That being said, between the GFX and Turbo 35, there are 8+ of them at our track.

I have 2 Turbo 35's, a GFX (all 3 updated to newest software and Lipo), an Icharger 106B and 208B. The GFX is the best (as far as battery feel after charging) with the 208B and the Turbo 35's a little behind. The 106 I use for charging receiver packs and the battery in my 4pk. The GFX will put higher amps into a battery for the longest time instead of falling off as much as the others.

Surprised no one mentioned the Hyperion line of chargers. I have the newest duel charger and have been pretty happy with it. Lots of options and still easy to use. I have done charged 2 packs at 20 amps each before with no problems (need a big power supply), though reality is I generally charge a 2C most the time.
