I would like to get my self a nihm lipo charger
I have looked around theres tons of chargers out there
I have no idea theres that much of chargers out there
And makes it really hard to chose one

I just need a simple
Ac/dc 120v to 240v nihm lipo charger
Able to fast balance charged 2s to 6s 6000mah 80c lipo
Discharged, storage charged , charged 2 lipos at once
It doesn't need to be touch screen
Its my first time to use a lipo
So i prefer something much easier to use
than those complicated chargers out there


Thanx guys

hey ARRMAgeddon, have a look at the SkyRC D100.
I am using it about 2-3 months now. you get a lot for your money, really love it. :)
only downside: its a bit noisy, nothing for living room etc. but fine for the hobby room.

at the moment just 4s lipos with 5000-6000 mah and somtimes some random nimh 7,2v packs.
time? no idea, usually i charge over night with just 1 amp.
you can charge two batteries at the same time with 50W on each port, or charge one batterie with 100W. AC Mode, with DC you got 200W
from this you can calculate how long it will take to fully charge your lipo

Im thinking of getting the venom pro duo
About how long would it charged a 4s 6000mah 60c lipo
With this charger?
I figured two of those battery should be enough for bashing around
If it takes an hour to charged both batteries at the same time thatt would be good

you should be able to have your charging battery finish before your battery you are running runs out. if not well then it's going to be a close thing on the timing.

I have that SMC 6500 mah 4s battery. It is great in my Typhon. I have the SPC 6500 mah 4s 65C, too, also a great battery.

I had one of the 50 watt 'clone' chargers to start out with. Mine had a bad button and I returned it. But, while it did work 50 watts of charging on a 6500 mah 4s lipo can only muster up about 3 amps. I was not thinking at the time and was fooled by the 5 amp rating. Well over an hour to charge from storage level.

So I ended up with a 80 watt B680 type AC/DC charger(I found mine for $40 to my door on Amazon). That can get up just on the high side of 5 amps on my 4s batteries, much better and that shaves off a bit of time on a full charge cycle.

Thanx for replying gt1
Man i think im an idiot for getting that hitec x1 touch
Some say it'll takes 2hours to charged that smc battery

With your newer charger how long will it takes to charged your smc 4s
Hour and half s fine with em but for 2 hours waiting man thats long
What acdc charger on the market that can fast balance charged that smc?
Im going to get me another charger
A decent charger

I will charge one from storage voltage tonight and see how long it takes.


I don't think you were an idiot, you hit the same trap I did. Hey, if you were charging 5000 mah 2s lipos it would do the 5-6 amps.

Yeah im thinking of going that route instead of 4s
Ill get 2x 2s 5000mah instead i think it would be a bit faster?
But man sure wish i can use single packs only

Hello guys.

I already have a charger a PRO-TRONIC AP681BLC, it ok but I need other one because of lot of LiPos.

So I hesitate between these 2 models:

1) SKYRC D100

2) SKYRC RS16

What do you think about?
