What's your favorite charger?
 
I need a good charger to charge multiple batteries, various kinds of batteries with all the bells and whistles - balancing, polishing, reconditioning and all the other things these batteries need.

What do you have?

Do you like it?

Was it worth the money?

Cellpro 10S from FMA. Balances, discharges, and all chemistry. A great instrument.

I have been using a turnigy accucel 6 for a year now and feel pretty good about the $49.00 I spent. Does all what you listed.

HK ECO 6-10 200W, 10A on a 6s lipo for a good price. It's very durable.

I would personally contact David at Progressive RC. He sells FMA and Icharger (what Ibought). He can steer you in the right direction for what your charging needs and budget allow.

If you need to get a power supply jrplane (on rcgroup) and others sell some great computer server supplies ready to go that work great for powering your charger on your bench.

Good luck.

Several of our club members have the HK 8150 and they all like theirs. I think buying from the USA the cost is about 47.00 Take a look at it.

Cell Pro 4S is my fav.  They now have a multi chemistry version.  That is what I would recommend.
