The second one is available at Airsoft Atlanta and is a decent charger
http://www.airsoftatlanta.com/product_p/00552.htm

I have had both types but am pretty black and white about stuff (hence the name Tinman)
1) The first is crap. It may last a while but NOT worth it.
2) The second is decent and worth the cash but not flexible.
3) The one Q mentioned is truly exceptional. The flexibility and feedback would be worth it even if you never charged a lipo on it!

I have also had a few of the MRC Superbrain 959 and 960 chargers . . . SOOOOO not worth it! Evil or Very Mad

+1
Hope you can make it back soon . . . you are a great player! You are welcome anytime!

The other beauty of the iMax charger is that it works really well on 12v too!
Just clip it on your car battery at the field and you get the same function at home. You can set it for ANY speed of charging from .1a all the way to 5.0a! Which I think would COOK any of our batts! affraid
Plus, it is the only one I have used with good alarms. I can have a batt charging in the workroom and be downstairs watching TV and hear it go off so that I know when to change it out!

With that charger, you CAN charge at 5.0a . . .
I never charge NiMh at more than 1.5a and lipo at 1.0a

Wow ...I never knew that scratch
My charger does 1.0 and 2.0
does this mean I should charge my 9.6 2400mah at 1.0 always?

I never charge any battery over 1.0 A. However, if the battery is smaller than 1000mA, I charge at less than 1A. So my 500mA glock battery, I charge at less than .5A. I ususally charge one that small at .2.

The balance charge function for Lipo will sometimes go over the 1.0A mark, because it is automatic, but I set it so that it would never go over 1.0A.

I think Frog and several others have. Any link Tinman posts is is a good site to buy from. If you are concerned about the shipping time ...he can answer those questions.
