Recommended simple LiPo charger
« on: June 10, 2022, 10:55:27 AM »
Can anyone recommend an inexpensive LiPo charger that might be able to handle different batteries in the future?
Right now I'm trying to charge Turnigy 1300 mAh and my low end Spektrum charger will only accept Spektrum Smart batteries.

Not sure what you mean by inexpensive.  When it comes to anything to do with LiPo batteries... don't go for saving a few dollars... on either batteries or chargers.  I've been using the SkyRC D100 V2 Dual charger.  Excellent.  $150.

Are you looking for AC powered, 12V DC powered, or dual power?

For 12 volt power, any of the "4 button" chargers work well (IMAX B6 and clones)
Another 12 volt option are the small iSDT ones. They are small and powerful, but I find them a bit harder to use than the "4 button" types.
