Default Lipo battery charger within $40

Suggestions on a Lipo battery charger with a balancer, discharge, 3s 3000mah capabilities, clycler, storage charge, and a built in AD/DC power supply (or comes with a power supply). I'm willing to pay up to $40 for it. New to the Lipo world

I would tell you to take a close look at the Hitec X1 Mini. It's about $45 and packs a lot into it. I think it's one of the best deals out there for a person jumping into LiPo charging on a budget...X1 mini ? AC Input Balance Charger/Discharger | HITEC RCD USA

The Hitec X1 Mini comes with one Deans style T-Plug charging lead and one XT-60 lead. SkyRC is the OEM for many products. The iMax B6 is an OK charger if you get a genuine one. The one linked in above post is more than likely a cheaper knockoff IMO. They are hit and miss a lot of times. I'd be more inclined to recommend brand/vendor with great costumer service. A Main Hobbies and Hitec ...two thumbs up.

I bought (4) of these. They have been great for the last 2 years. As I have more of the smaller 3s batteries, 2200, 1800, 1300, 450, these really fit my budget. I have a box of old laptop power cords so that is easy enough to cut the end and wire them up. I found I had Toshiba in there and the plugs were a perfect fit. I do use a 240w when I charge my 5s, 6s batteries. Brother has (2), brother in law has (2), friend has (3) of these too.

I bought the venom 2-4cell AC/DC on amazon. It seems to be good because I changed my mind on getting 3s batteries because my car can't handle it. I am going with 2s and it can charge dual. Only downside is its only 3a so it will take a while.
