Hey all.
looking for some help on choosing a lipo and a compatable charger. Does one lipo charger charge all lipos or not? I was looking for a 4or 5000 mah i believe. I have a new volcano exp pro. My pro has the banana connectors so my charger needs them too right? Heelp! thanks

thunder AC6 lipo charger. Its what I use. Its a good all-around unit and it doesnt cost alot.

Lipo chargers usually have adjustable charge rates. 1amp for a 1000mah lipo....5amps for a 5000mah lipo. you get the idea.

I use sky lipo (brand name) 2s 30c 5000mah packs. you will want at the least a 20c pack ( "C" means the discharge rate) A 30 or 40c pack is best.

Both the thunder AC6 and the sky lipo pack are sold on hobbypartz.com. the sky lipo packs (as well as most packs that site has) come with banana plugs already on them.

I agree with the above quote. Only exception is I use 40C batteries.
