Default Budget LiPo charger

Hi guys,

Just wondering if anyone can recommend a good low budget LiPo charger?
It has to work off of AC 240v power.

I previously had Accucel (I think) DC chargers which I was happy with given their very low cost.

Currently what fits my needs/budget and is easily accessible to me (in nearby stores):
- IM RC I2.0 Smart Charger
-GT Power C607D
-GT Power C6D
- A number of SkyRC chargers: e680, S65

However I do not mind buying online and waiting for shipping.

Look at the HTRC C240, its a dual charger, 10amp charge rate, AC or DC power supply and cheap. i've been using one for 6 months now with no issues

They sell others that are similar too.

I have the SkyRC S60 as well and that works well too and recommend them if they meet your needs. They are only rated to 4S so if you buy charge leads for 2S batteries they usually have a balance plug for 6 cell battery which doesn't fit without cutting it down.

That thread is well worth a slow a careful read. lots of information packed in there. I would not settle for any charger that doesn't offer an IR meter and AC/DC chargers will cheat you of key features.

For a low budget setup I would recommend the X6 with a 750W supply, that is a quality setup that will last many years and will save you money/frustration by taking better care of your batteries too
