    Best LiPo chargers

    I want to get some lipos but want to find a very nice charger for a reasonable price.

    I was thinking about the Thunder ac6 and have heard many good things about them but have also heard that they have some problems. I want to spend $50-$75

    If you could include a link to where to buy that would be great.; thx all!

    AC6 is definately not the best.

    However its very practical. If you only need a 50 watt charger, its a good choice.

    You are not going to get the "best" lipo charger for 50-75 bucks. Figure about 4x that plus power supply...

    I was able to pick up a power supply(radio shack) and duratrax ICE for around $150 so that should be reasonable.

    THIS looks to be a good charger... I HATE where it comes from, but the specs are all there where it counts, and the price is right...

    The AC6 is a great charger for the price. It might not be the best thing out there but I have no complaints. It charges, it balances.
    All we know is; hes called The Stig.

    I made a thread a while back on the "best" charger.

    I came up with the icharger 208b. I can charge at 8 cell lipo/life at up to 20A..

    Here's the thread

    Remember, it is cheaper in the long run if you purchase items that have some room to grow with you as your hobby (sickness) does.

    Just think of it as buying a pair of tennis shoes when you were little. That extra half size kept you from having to buy another pair of shoes in 6 months when your feet grow.
