Default Is the iC5 and/or iC6 charger any good?

Hi guys!

I'm looking at getting either the iC5 or the iC6 charger from Hobby Lobby. The iC5 doesn't have any reviews and the iC6 has only two reviews and both of them are not very good. One of the reviews says that the instructions are very difficult and there's no tech support. However, based on the product description, it seems like either one of those chargers has just what I need. Since I'm an extreme newbie when it comes to LiPo batteries, I'd like it if the instructions were very clear.

So does anyone have any opions on either of these two chargers? Or can anyone recommend a good charger in the $70 range that is balanced and will also discharge?

Thank you!

Eric

They all seem to be cloned, I use the Turnigy brand.

Here's three, depends on what size batteries you use.

Wow Ceejay!

Those look great and at a lot nicer price than the ones I was looking at on the Hobby Lobby site. I'd be charging a 3 cell 11.1V 1300 mAh 20C liPo and I'd probably be getting a 1500 mAh in the very near future.

Thank you for the great info!!

Eric
