Default IMAX Compact Charger C3

I was wondering if I could use this to charge my Sky Lipo 7.4V 5000 mAh, or if anyone can suggest an affordable lipo charger that can handle this kind of battery.

Yes, the specs says that charger is made just to charge 2S and 3S lipos. It is a very cheap charger and does not provide any info about the charging process. It will not charge any other battery either.

Charging current is only 0.65amps so if your lipos are large like 3000 or 5000mah, this charger will take a very, very long time, literally hours. This kind of charger is usually intended for small lipos that plane guys use, like 600-800mah.

This is a better all around charger -
