I have used this one for a while and I think it worth more than its price for a smart charger

The blue G&P charger is absolutely 100% fine. Don't shell out for the IMAX B6 until your G&P breaks. I have charged LiPos to perfection with that little blue box and outlasted every other battery on the field many times now... It's good to go.

A few notes:

- 3 green lights = finished
- quiet beeping at various speeds = normal
- taking a very long time to charge a battery, i.e. 3 hours or whatever = normal. This thing trickles the charge into the cells until they're full and balanced.

I use a couple of these when I'm out flying my RC planes at the field: http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...dProduct=14857

Look at the price. Can't go wrong. Haven't had a single problem with any of mine.

Since when do you trickle-charge lipos? They should be charged at 1C.
