Multiplex LM-5014 is what I use. Under 100 bucks, can charge up to 5S lipo @ 5 amps, and can handle Pb batteries for the field box and all nicd/nimh combos. It works great, and have no issues so far with it, but if I was to do it again, I would spring for a built-in balancing type of charger. I like the 1010C, but I don't like the extra balancer you need to buy for it.....

For my smaller batteries I use a Great Planes triton jr. Will do nicad, nimh, lipo. Had it for two years now with no issues. I agree with jester though. Spring for one with a balancer. You'll need one anyway

Hi Bill & everyone! Read in another forum that the Bantam E-Station B6 is only capable of only 50W charging power & not enough for 6S packs. Any comments pls.?

Eat, sleep, 3D...what else could be more fun?
