Default I need a lipo charger

Been out the game for a few days.


Use to run hyperion stuff..
Going to be charging lipos from about 3s to about 8s.

Interested in an Ac/Dc charger or is the AC stuff with a power supply the way to go?

Hyperion any good still?
Looking at their duo charger and....not sure.

Hitec is good, the ICharger is the best but the most expensive. ($500)

iCharger 308 DUO with a good standalone power supply is the most cost effective solution for me

I realize you already purchased your charger, but in case it helps anyone else...

..I just got this charger:
Amazon Amazon

Its an HTRC T150. I wouldn't have got an off brand, however the reviews on all sites I looked were very good for this charger. I have owned about 6 or 7 different chargers over the years. The reason I upgrade is usually a new type of battery comes out (Lipo, then Lipo HV), and/or I want to charge at a higher rate of current ....

The HTRC T150 is very small yet very powerful. It can charge at a very high rate of current (if you want), so it can charge batteries quite quickly its rated to 10amps, yet the charger itself allows you to adjust much higher (yet don't recommend it as not sure its good for batteries). It has a really nice touchscreen and has lots of options for charging as well as displaying various functions and features. I got to say that this may be the best charger I've owned and its been one of the least expensive. I paid $64 for mine shipped, yet looks like its been steadily going up in price as I think its getting more popular. I was looking at an Orion touch screen model for $250 then found this one, ...got to say I am happy w/ my purchase and it has all the functionality that you'd need.

Worth your money!!! If you have questions on setting up so your charger doesn't explode feel free to PM me.
