Hey everyone,

I've been using a Great Planes Triton for quite some time and it has been good to me, but now I want something new. The main reason is because I want a charger that can balance my lipos. I don't need anymore features than the Triton has (just to balance the lipos) but I was wondering what would be the best choice out of the following list. Now granted, I have a lot of lipo batteries, I have nothing over 3s. I do not plan on getting into high power electrics for a while so I don't need a really powerful charger. Battery logging would be nice as well as update-able firmware but not crucial. Either way, your input will be appreciated.

Thunder Power TP-610C $129.95
Mega Power Poseidon-860DS $129.00
Mega Power INFINITY-660SR $158.00
Hyperion 0606i $99.95
Bantam e-Station BC5 $129.99
Lightning Power Multifunction Balance Charger $129.99

...now where was I, dh/dt = BS-dx/dt
I will fly you forever... till earth do us part

If you have a lot of batteries, check out the Hyperion EOS 0610i Duo.
It has an internal balancer. It will do 2 batteries at the same time.

It's a nice charger but it's way too expensive. I'm looking to spend less than $150 and my power supply can't even supply the watts to charge 2 batteries at once...

I have the Hyperion 610I and love it.

Nice 6S charger for the money.

If your triton is doing the job, why not just by a balancer??? I have a triton jr which I use a equinox balancer ($40) and it works awesome.

Unless your just ready for a new one.

Good luck..

Why not just get a balancer to use with your Titron, save you big bucks.
For cheap, you can get the blinky for $25 and for a decent one, you can get a e-station PB6 for around 60 bucks

yes, I'm fully aware of my options but I would prefer to get a new charger. I really just want to buy something new and I wish to get rid of my Triton...

The cellpro 4S is a good choice if you do not plan over 4S, $75 US and they offer a free adaptor board as a promotional item now. The down side for this charger is it's lipo only.
