    Multi cell LiPo charger

    I have a project in mind, one that uses 4s and another that uses 6s LiPo batteries.
    Looking for advice on a cheap but serviceable balance charger for 4s and 6s batteries.

    I've had zero experience with LiPo chargers, but hobbyking has been my "go to" for batteries, and most of their products have customer reviews......

    Oh you will of course need a reasonable power supply/Car battery to run them off ... if that doesnt appeal something like the older ( but still very good ) https://hobbyking.com/en_us/imax-b6-...s-genuine.html might suit

    Thanks chaps, I had the hobbyking site open, but was unsure what to get, other than just cheap.
    confident purchase now.

    Thanks all.
    From your posts I gather HobbyKing is honest about what's authentic & "styled".

    Apologies if this is a mini-hijack.

    I've been very happy with a Soshine from Supersports600 for 2 years, but a long power blackout at night 6 months ago made me realise I should get another good 4-6 batt charger, partly cos I'd taken a couple AA devices out of mothballs.
    I was interested in, perhaps, a hobby charger.

    I wouldn't have a clue who is a good vendor in Aust.
    A legit Australian plug seems to be the stumbling block.

    I don't mind buying yet another legit DC transformer, although I wouldn't mind finding if any I rarely use might be suitable and safe.

    I'm kinda "over" box mods, so being able to charge Lipo doesn't matter.

    Need to find an Aussie RC forum, and possibly an electrical one for DC transformer info.

    HobbyKing have a store in Sydney, I've dealt with them since 2007 for my electric bike needs

    Typical Chinese vendor though (as in handling returns etc)

    Ordered my bits, I live off grid so available power outside is limited to one of my generators or battery powered devices, some of which are getting on a bit, therefore the LiPo surgery. An electric bike would be good for the trek to the letterbox, and I could retire my DT200.

    I got my 4s LiPo batteries and charger from hobbyking, along with some xt60 connectors. The shitty nicad 14.4v ryobi drill loves the new source of power. Now for everything else that has been underperforming.
