    Looking to buy a LiPo charger.

    Use to run a hyperion that seemed top notch about 4 years ago.

    What is the scoop today?

    Looking at an icharger duo something or other.
    Need it for 6s to possibly up to 8s packs.

    @300m I've seen a few guys running the iCharger 208 and are really happy with it. You mention a Duo, I don't know anyone running one, but have seen several positive reviews on the iCharger 406Duo - that is a beast of a charger that's for sure!

    That is a rather impressive charger indeed. If you get one please share your thoughts on it. I'd like to upgrade my hyperion as well, though I don't think I need a 4010duo level yet. :D

    I kind of wonder how that works. Do you need to get a higher voltage PSU to run that at max output or do you use a 12V PSU that has 100A available? PSU would cost as much as the charger, if your lucky.

    Seems like many of the higher end chargers are requiring to be fed at higher voltages then just 12v.

    I picked up a 1800W 75a 25v PSU from buddyrc.
    The 4010 is good for up to 50v.


    I'm sure that the higher the input voltage, the better your charger will perform.
