Default CDR 5000 charging lipos?


I know the user manual states clearly that this charger canīt charge lipos, but with all the adjustments isnīt it possible to configure it to savely charge lipos?

My understanding is that for charging regular batteries they use a peak detect by monitoring voltage looking for a drop....for Li-Po's it monitors current....

There is potential to have the software reprogrammed by the manufacturer...but not anything that can be done with the charge profiles by the user.

Every seen what happens when A lipo isn't charged right....

Well lets just say I would rather spend another $200 on a new charger than have one of those go wrong on me...And I thought a venting Sub C NiMh was bad..Sheesh it was like all of sudden KA BOOM and everything in about 24" of the pack was completely torched or demolished. I watched this happen to friend...Not funny and he was lucky he didn't get injured or injured anyone else.
Take head these warnings....
Buy a charer specificly designed for lipos.
