    Question Duratrax ICE + Zippy Flightmax Lipo = Which balancer?

    I've been out of the RC world for a few years and am getting back in with both feet! I am making the leap to lipo and trying a couple cheaper packs first. They came from hobbyking and have a jst-xh connector. What balancer do I need to balance charge my packs? I got a 5200mah 30c pack, and a 4000mah 20c pack. I'd like to charge them at 1C.

    Batteries:

    http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...dProduct=16765


    Would this work?

    High power leads: - to charge at 1C ?

    Thanks!

    Nar mate, get one of these: http://www.hobbypartz.com/73p-ac680-accharger.html
    That is a full-on, full-power, made-for-Lipo charger. Don't even mess around with "wall-wart" chargers, and for HEAVEN'S sake, don't use an old NiCd / NiMh charger! (unless you want to burn your house down)

    That charger comes with a balance board for anything from 2S to 6S. Even comes with a USB dongle that allows you to hook the charger up to your PC for monitoring charge/discharge characteristics. Comes with a bunch of charge leads too, but if you've already picked a connector you like (Traxxas, Deans) you'll have to make one for the charger. No biggie.
    Just a schmoe....
