Don't think many use that one because it doesn't balance charge or indicate how much you are putting back into your packs.

I do use this one. It does work well and will do 4 3s packs at the same time. If you are using Thunder power packs you can use 4 of the 105 balncers to balance the packs. LIke stated above it doesn't show the amount of charge put back in, but the charger does work well. I just sold a Triton and now I am just waiting for the Thunder Power 610C to become available at the hobby shop I work. Chuck

I have used this charger since they first came out 2 years ago, it is a great charger for 2 and 3s packs up to 2500mah, it will do up to 4000, but since it does not balance I only use it for up to 2500mah.
this charger does not "peak" charge meaning does not give a 100% full charge, but I find that it is pretty easy on the packs and fairly safe! and being able to charge 4 packs out weights the negatives in my opinion, you can always add a blinky balancer if you want! but be warned it is a Dc charger so you won't be charging battereis all day long from your car, I have killed my car battery more then once! I am good for about 6 or 8 battery charges of 2000-2500mah. then my car is dead! I can charge 700-1200 packs all day with no problems though. I would not be without this charger! I have a timmer so I don't care if it doesn't have a readout, I can do the math, how long it takes to charge etc.

I use it too. I have a single blinky balancer that I cycle through the packs so that each pack get balanced every 3rd or 4th charge.

cool! I want to use it for a plank I just bought that uses trex packs, no worries about balancing them often, just worried if it can charge four of those without blowing something up!

thanks for the headsup on the DC only, time for more power supplies...

I, too, have this charger and use it to charge my 3S packs and 2S flight packs. It comes in real handy. I simply use the TP balancer either during or after the charge. It is true that they dont peak charge you lipos but I sometimes "top them off" with one of my other single charges but usually dont. Just make sure you have a good power supply if you plan on cranking them all up at the same time. I even charge a pair of 3S 4200's with them but it just takes longer since you can't go all the way up to 4200 mah.

I had a polycharge4. It was great. I only sold it when I moved to 6s 5000 packs. Bought a tp1010 after the polycharge. I got back into 450 sized helis so I wish I still had it. I would use it to charge all my AT 2200's.

I have it too. Works fine. I honestly don't care how much I am putting back in as long as I can fly. Pick your self up 4 of these bad boys and you will be all set. You will also need the Flight Power (also for TP) adapters for this balancer (can get a 3 pack from tower too):

I'VE been using mine for 2 years. It works great. I have an LBA-6 balancer that I use on my packs every 3-4 charges to keep them in shape. Get it, you can charge 4 packs at once!
