Arrow Switching to LiPo: Need Help.

I am going to switch over to 4s LiPo power for my E-Revo soon but I am not sure what to get. I am also planning on running a CC MMM 2200kV combo. What do I need to get to charge the batteries (balancer?)? Also, would I need an LVC for the MMM ESC (I think it has one built in, so my guess is no)? I have a Team Checkpoint TC-1030 charger which is LiPo capable.

Any help would be appreciated.

Just get a blinky and you should be set. The checkpoint will do for the batteries. LVC is built in.

The MMM has a built in lvc and more than one option to use it (auto detect and can pick/set a voltage I believe). The charger is good, just need a balancer to keep the cells in balance. I'd get one that lets you charge and balance at the same time instead of a balancer that just discharges all the other cell to lowest voltage on any cell. There are a few balancers than will work either way too.

The Hyperion LBA10, ElectriFly Equinox, Bantam PB6 all are good ones that will balance and charge at same time or balance stand alone. Ideal way would be to have a balancing charger, but you already have a lipo capable charger. If you want to buy a new charger, consider the Hyperion 0610iNet balancing charger.

Default another good lipo charger
