I have a Triton charger and I was wondering if I could charge a 3S4P pack that I will be using with my Eco-8. Would the Triton be able to handle it, or will I need another charger like an Astro 109 to charge it?

Thanks,

Chris

Charging LiPO Batteries is like playing with Plutonium! One false move and it's a nuclear meltdown!

2.5A is Triton's max for charging lipos...

I'm guessing your pack is something like 4000mah right? So the Triton will charge it at around C/2. It should work, but it will take about 2 hours for a full charge... uhh.. better make that three hours because the Triton takes a long time to top-off a lipo.

I use my Triton for charging my lipos... and I like it, but I only use the smaller lipos. If I used larger batteries, I would get a dedicated lipo charger.
