Hi!!

I am looking for a good charger that'll do the job of charging a TP 3cell 1200 mah lipo battery. Is this a good battery? I really do not know why Li-po chargers are so expensive ($80+) usually, this charger sells for about ~$49.

There is also this charger:

I do not know the brand, does anyone have this? It sells for about $34, and is called "Li-Poly Safe 1-4 Cell SMART CHARGER 250-2500mA "

Any feedback would be appreciated.

Thanks!!!
Peter

I have the Apache 2500 -looks quite similar and has the same specs (1-4S and 2500mA). Bought it for about $50 last year. For a no bells & whistles charger it works very well- it just lacks the digital readout of chargers costing more than twice as much. (It actually matches the Triton in charging ability...)

They claim to have very complete checking that the battery is compatible with the charger (supposed to catch incorrect cell counts etc).

I use this charger as well to charge my TP2100's 3s and my 3s ETEC 1200mAh. Works great!

Use caution when dealing with lithium's. Don't set the voltage or current wrong, they can catch on fire. I use a homemade firebox, see my gallery. Never charge them unattended.











....there goes that CA glue sticking to my fingers again!!!!
