    LETS TALK CHARGERS

    Time to upgrade to a decent multiple-charger (lipo) since my bigger models run 5000mAh or bigger. I'd like to be able to charge 1 - 4 lipos simultaneously. It's fine if it will require an auxiliary PSU for AC operation. It'll also need to work with DC for duty @ the field. Will @ least be able to do 5a, as well as balance/discharge as well.

    Check out the iCharger 1010B+. It's a bit pricey but from what I've read it's really precise and reliable. I think you can even use the iCharger plus models for foam-cutting. I don't own one but I'm considering the cheaper 106b+ model to replace my current charger.

    ^^ That only will charge 1 pack though right?? I have the Venom equivalent of that charger - but I need something that can do 2 packs simulateneously (MINIMUM).

    You will want something with an external power supply, since the ones with an integrated one are typically limited to 50W or so. Personally I use a high end Hyperion charger with a parallel charging board, so I can charge up to 6 packs at the same time. With a sufficient power supply it'll charge 6x 5000Mah @ 1C (30A). I have some friends with iChargers and they're good too. Just get one of those parallel charging boards and you're good.

    I have one of the units below. It's been rebranded by a milion-and-1 people, but they're all the same. No complaints here

    I have that one and like it however with my 3.3 4s batts I can only charge 2 of them at 1c.
    As Far as usage It has worked very well for me on all functions used with one fault, port#3 doesn't discharge for some reason.
    If anyone has seen a charger that will charge in the 12 amp range that would be nice.

    I would buy another for the dollar per value ratio.
