Koe,

In case you are not aware of this

http://www.rcmart.com/catalog/produc...ducts_id=25829

and

http://www.rcmart.com/catalog/produc...ance%20Charger

I have used this battery before and its quite impresive. The thread about this is also found at http://www.rctech.net/forum/showthread.php?t=208026


The charger is similar to IMAX B5.

Frankly at that price, there is nothing to complain.

OM

Hi,

Have a look at these :

http://www.hobbycity.com/hobbycity/s...2&v=&sortlist=

I have the BC8 & am quite satisfied. To put things into perspective, the balancing ports are a way to tap into & monitor & charge (?) individual cells within the battery so that the charger can do its thing. There are different tabs used by different manufacturers. The align type favoured by many Chinese manufacturers seem to be gaining. One can always make adaptors or even buy them to suit the ports.

The place linked above also have a lot of different lipos. By the way, it is not always necessary for the lipo to be hard cased. I do offroad & none of my lipos are in a case. Having said that u do need to protect the battery.

For 2S battery, I like this better than maxamps subjectively (but I suspect they're the same cells except that this place is cheaper) :

Bro Edwin,

A balancer can be a separate unit or build-in to the charger. What it does is basically balance the voltage on each of the lipo cell (1 cell = 3.7V, 2 cell = 7.4V, etc) so that either one of the cells will not be overcharge. Lipo does not likes to be overcharge or else it will puffs up and may lead to permanent damage or worse, fire.

I am using a Tahmazo T15 with Tahmazo external balancer to charge my lipo packs. I only balance the packs once in a while since it takes really long to fully charge the pack.

i just got my Yeah racing lipo packs(3200 , maybe its a copy of the Carbon lipo from orion) from my recent holiday trips. i have not tried to use it, i notice its balancing port match my Esky balance lipo charger...

i already charge it...i wonder if Eksy lipo balance charger can do a good job?

actually its take some to full charge....i got 2 other charger that able to charge lipo, but both got no balancer.....

well guys, which do you think its a good lipo charger, basically (Avionics,bantam,imax,tahmazo and many similar look button ) charger out there are lipo chargers, but all not good at peak charging(nimh), cos i charge touring car battery with my bantam(nimh battery), no punch, charge same battery with my ICE charger, very punch. probaly due to charging style?

so here its my question, does need lipo a good punch charger? or all lipo chargers are the same? (i personally think lipo cannot be Force charge like nimh, so probaly all lipo charger are same) but we will never know, technology its improving as we speak....

cheers.....

with current fuel price, i really hope my 1/1 car can run on lipo.....

best brand is subjective bro... basically u get what u pay in terms of life, performance and of course safety. You will need to look at the C rating of the lipo. Generally, 20-25C is good enough... of course higher better la but C rating is not a standardize from manufacturer to manufacturer. Complicated? hehe... best to read the Core Lipo thread from pg1

good news... in short, lipo charging profile is simplier vs Nimh. you dont need high end chargers to have different lipo output performance. As long as the charger is charging using CC/CV (constant current/constant voltage) thats good enough.

yea, i wish my car runs on lipo cells too... Prius anyone??
