I would recommend the FMA Direct Cellpro 4S for $75 plus another $10 for the correct adapter for your packs.

Cell Pro 4S. I have a 4S and a 6S HD and love them both. Incredible value for the money.

Cellpro is only 4s up to 4amps
Turnigy is 6s up to 5amps

Cellpro also doesnt charge Ni batteries while the Turnigy does.

It's the best damn one I found out of 4 pulled from working computers this is the only I could get to turn on. It's a Coolmax V-500 Newegg Link $14.99!!!

This PSU needs nothing to run without a motherboard, just jump the green wire with a black and it turns right on. No need to simulate a load like all the do-it-yourself sites say you need. The giant fan is super quiet just needs some rubber feet so it doesn't vibrate if left on a hard surface.

380w / 35amps! I could run 7 of those chargers.

Turnigy is 6s up to 5amps
keep in mind its a 50W charger,and will only do 6S packs at about 2A,IT will not do a 6s battery at 5a

other than that it looks like a nice charger for the money

+1 on the Cellpro 4Multi new model that does Multi-Chemistry, supports LiPoly, LiIon, LiFePO4, A123, LiMn, NiCd, NiMH, Pb - $79 and $10 discount.

Instead of trading up for a one charger does it all....I've dicided to add one to my 10S setup, this way I can still manage what non Lipo cells I have left.

normally you can find a thunder power 610c used for under $100. They are excellent chargers.

It's a complex, costly, glow powered anti-gravity machine!
