First of all guys, the LiPo i orderd is a 7.4, 2s, 2600mah thunderpower for my RX setup and was wondering if these chargers i have would work for it.

Those are both bottom end chargers with the Eflite being the better of the two because it will charge at a higher amp rate. I think the Esky will take all day to charge the battery you have.
I use a Turnigy 420 from hobbycity.com to charge my 3s 2200 lipo. It's a cheep charger that will charge up to 4s batteries and only cost $23 + shipping.
If I dont run my battery's below 50-60% about 10 minutes on my Mini Titan they charge back up in about 30 to 40 minutes at 2amp's.

What are you using the 2s on?

your batteries are the heart of a heli,it makes no sense to invest in good batteries and use junk chargers,dont even think about using an e-sky charger,complete garbage.there are MANY MANY reports of them ruining batteries,go over to e-sky forum and ask,I have been a regular over there for 2 years,lots of problems with them

there are a ton of 50 dollar 50W chargers out there if you plan on charging smaller batts.they will tell you cell V,pack V,and most important mah put back in,plus the balancing section is a much higher quality.

one of the best chargers for 4s and under batts is the fma cellpro4s,awesome charger.although I think it has been replaced with the multi4

the 2s will be on the 7100R w/ 8717's. I was digging up some of my junk and found several chargers from a few years back. I guess i would have to get a trition or something. Thanks.

Dont get me wrong the Eflite will charge it, I just dont know how long it will take. Plug it in and let the charger do it's thing if it charges it well enough for you thats all that matters.
I think the Esky charger you have though is ment to be used with the 2 or 3s 800mah batteries and if I remember correctly it takes a painfully long time time to charge with it.

Fenderstrat is correct the Cellpro 4s is a niffty little charger with some cool features. You will have to watch the classifieds to get one though because the Cellpro multi 4s is on backorder till who knows.
Keep a watchfull eye for a used Hyperion, Bantam or Triton eq if you want something quick with a good reputation.
The bigger batteries they charge, watts and amps will determine resell value.
