    Lipo charger? Help.

    Either one i get weather the 1/16 revo or 1/16 summit brushless i'm gonna get lipo batteries.Probably most upgrades before i even get it.This way i already have it and know a little.What is a good charger for a beginner like my self.Something easy to figure out but a good one not junk.Cause i know 0 about lipos,charging,discharging,balancing and whatever else goes along with it.Something very user friendly not so complicated you need to be a rocket scientist to figure out.I don't want to destroy anything,nor burn my house down due to lack of know how.Thanks.

    RE: Lipo charger? Help.

    This is the charger I use. Its a little pricey but it works very well and can charge several lipos at once.

    Here is a very helpful link explaining lipos and charging. One thing to keep in mind, if in the future you want to charge more than 1 lipo at a time then you may want to get a charger that can dish out a few more amps than what you are looking at, but then again you would probably need a power supply also.

    RE: Lipo charger? Help.

    I'm not to awfully concerned with spending a bit to have better,in the long run it would pay.Is it easy to use,user friendly?Cause remember i have 0 experiance with all the electric.I'm gonna definetly get a summit.I can't wait to go electric and say bye to nitro.To much BS and mess with nitro.Another question i have is the 1 battery that comes with the summit new,could i get adaptors and charge it off my old charger i used to charge all my 6v 7.2's?It's old but works.

    The charger I linked is extremely easy to use and has several safety features to protect your lipos from over charging and getting to hot. The charger is very user friendly. Just do plenty of research about lipos before you jump into anything.

    Can't help you with that dinosaur.

    One thing to note is that the icharger is a DC charger. You will need a power supply if you want go charge from an outlet. Or you could charge off a car battery.
