Reply with quote

Hey yall, I'm looking to buy a good Lipo balance charger for all my batteries.. I have a CX2, 120SR, Big Lama, and a SR... I wanted to get something I could use to charge them all and the jackass at the hobby shop here was no help whatsoever. ..

Can anyone recommend to me a good charger that will charge batteries for the above mentioned helis? I need one that comes with all the connectors for the 7.4V, 3.7V (JST) and 11.1V...??? Hopefully there is one out there that has everything I need.. Specific recommendations would be greatly appreciated.....

Thanks much

Hey mjg44mjg I ordered the copter x b601 from wowhobbies it came with the power adapter and adapters for 7.4v 11.1v etc it will charge up to six cell batteries. the adapter for 3.7v is also available for about $4.00 will charge five batteries at once. I gave $59.95 for mine with adapters ordered on a Saturday morning received it on Monday freight was $6.95 USPS. I cut my charge time down by2/3 rds. best investment i,ve made in a long time.. hope this helps. Lane

One of the most common it seems is the B6 charger ... labeled by various and sold on Ebay, Hobby King ... LHS etc.

I have the Imax B6 and can say at approx. $30 it came with mains adaptor .. charges all types of batterys - I even use it to charge my lawn tractor 12v ... my hand drill ..... 'NiCD, NiMH, LiIon .... does the lot ... boost charge the Tx on field if necessary ... glow-starters ...

Best money ever spent and it's auto-detect, prgrammable etc.

Turnigy AC6 ... etc. are all based on the similar 6 module.

For what it's worth I recently bought an iCharger 206B after a lot of research. Get the right balance board and connectors, and it'll do all you want - all battery types, all voltages, programmable etc.

Thanks for all the input fellaz..... Laneritc,...!!! I bought the charger you recommended.... Now all I have to do is replace all of my crappy dead batteries and I should be good... Might try to see if any of the old ones are salvageable...

Again thanks for the input and the advice and recommendations...
