    Looking to buy Lipo(s) and charger: Questions

    Alright so i just picked up a TC4 & Mamba Max 5700 setup.

    I'm in the market for some Lipo's and a charger.
    I'm looking for a 3s lipo, probably a 5000ish mah, and average C rating.
    I plan to just use the car for street/parking lot passes, no type of racing yet.

    1. What different type of chargers are there?
    2. Should i use a balance charger?
    3. What is the benefits of a balance charger?
    4. What battery do you recommend?
    5. I understand the hard cases are for racing, but whats the benefit of the hard case?
    6. All 3c are 11.1v right?
    7. Should i charge the batteries in something sort of fireproof protection (i keep reading about this...)

    Price range: Average. (best bang for the buck i guess)

    Thanks!
    I look forward to doing business with you again.

    1. What different type of chargers are there? Here's what we sell: http://www.maxamps.com/products.php?cat=33
    2. Should i use a balance charger? Balancer's are built into the chargers we sell.
    3. What is the benefits of a balance charger? They are built in, no need for another device.
    4. What battery do you recommend? Look here for your options: http://www.maxamps.com/products.php?cat=96
    5. I understand the hard cases are for racing, but whats the benefit of the hard case? Added protection is the only benefit.
    6. All 3s are 11.1v right? yes.
    7. Should i charge the batteries in something sort of fireproof protection (i keep reading about this...) Yes use one of these: http://www.maxamps.com/proddetail.ph...po-Sack&cat=33

    Price range: Average. (best bang for the buck i guess) See the links I provided for Prices. Also be sure to check out our membership program. http://www.maxamps.com/membership.php

    HV Simply stands for " High Voltage " the numbers on the pack are the mAh.

    Battery tray size doesn't allow for it.

    Oh i see. I didnt know the size could vary with MAH.

    Is there a such thing as a charger that's not a balancer.
    Say i have a Lipo charger but it's not a balancer. Would i need one of these http://www.maxamps.com/products.php?cat=34

    check out the zippy lipo packs that are at hobbycity.com, they are much cheaper and perform just as well. not sure if you can get a higher mah from a different manufacturer, but its worth a look around for one.
