Jaged,

I made the conversion without problems (and I'm not very skilled) and the charger works very well. I don't have a voltmeter so cannot comment on whether it is charging the lipolys 100% but I am getting about 15 minutes flight time from the E-Tecs using the charger and am quite happy with that.

In addition, I picked up for $20 CAD an adapter from Radio Shack that lets you use your auto charger with a regular wall socket...so for a total of $35 CAD I have a lipoly charger that I can use and home and in the car.

The other thing that I really like about this auto charger is that, unlike the standard Birdseed charger, you can leave the batteries plugged in without worrying about over charging them.

I highly recommend this charger and Zebrahobby as I have always received excellent pricing and service from them.

Hope this helps.

Only problem is finding one like this. For many years now, cellphones have been using only 1 cell, so the 2-cell chargers are hard to find. Also, many of the cellphone chargers only charged properly when plugged into the phone. Unless you can find this exact model, or know exactly what you are doing you can easily blow up your batteries.
