Is it still ok to charge a dx7 with the wall adapter even though you have a lipo battery in it? I have not done it but am wondering about it.

No - you need to use a proper LiPo charger for charging a lipo. Wall charger is not safe.

That's what i thought, thank you. I'm about to give this radio to my brother and didn't want to give him wrong info. But can you use the charge input on the side of the radio, with a lipo charger?

I don't think you want to do that - there is a diode in line there I think. Plus you'd want to hook up the balance lead anyway.

You'll need to charge it once every few months anyway, just take the pack out of the radio to do it. If you have the stock pack I'd put that in while it's charging just to make sure the little backup battery doesn't die and wipe out your configuration.

DX-7
I don't think a DX-7 has a backup battery. I don't think thay are used on anything anymore.

You can do it one time, and as an added bonus, you will know it's charged when it catches on fire.

Never charge a LiPo battery with ANYTHING NOT designed for charging LiPos.
