Dynamite Passport LiPo/Life AC/DC Battery Charger (6S/5A)
I bought this charger over one year ago and have charged by 3S 2200mAh batteries 460 times - for a total operating time on the charger of over 230 hours. I have had zero problems with the charger. Given its all-in-one features of DC and AC charging, plus the built in balancer, this is a great for the first-time heli operator.)

Dynamite Passport LiPo/Life AC/DC Battery Charger (6S/5A)
Picked up this charger in conjunction with a Dynamite LiPo. The charger works great in both AC and DC configurations. It takes a little over a half hour to charge my battery on either power source. The charger has a built in balancer and it works well. I've charged my battery about ten times and I've yet to notice any flaws with the battery or charger to date. The only flaw I can think of is that this charger is not very feature rich. However, considering the price more than makes up for the lack of information displays. I'd recommend this charger.)

Dynamite Passport LiPo/Life AC/DC Battery Charger (6S/5A)
This is a great charger for what I use it for. I use it to charge the 4c 2200 lipo in my starter box and it does a great job, it takes a little longer to charge than some other chargers and it is very basic but for the money and what I use it for it workes great.)

Dynamite Passport LiPo/Life AC/DC Battery Charger (6S/5A)
Great charger for the money. Finding a LiPo charger that includes a balancing circuit, a built-in power supply, and charge rates up to 5 A was not easy to find at the time I bought this. You have to figure the cost of a power supply into the purchase price if you're comparing this against the DC only chargers. If you already have a power supply, you might want to spend the money on a charger with more options such as a computer control and full dot matrix LCD display.

The programming of this charger is very easy. Plug it into the supply source, either 120 VAC or 12 VDC. The 120 VAC cord is permanent, while the 12 VDC cord is detachable. Select either LiPo or LiFe by holding the button down before you plug in the battery pack. The color of the LED on the top left will change; either red or green. The meaning of that color is printed right on the face of the charger. Momentary presses of the button will change the charge current in 1 A increments. Now, plug the balance lead into the appropriate balance port and the discharge lead into the main harness. Then, press and hold the button until you hear a beep and charging starts. You'll hear the fan slow down a bit as the load is put on the power supply.

There are only two drawbacks to this charger: a) Loud fan. No biggy. b) it doesn't seem to charge the packs as fully as my Multiplex LN-5014 charger, which costs $10 more but doesn't include a balancer or power supply. (I bought an external balancer for $25 and already had a power supply) When I have a pair of identical 5 Ah, 2S, 20C LiPos that I had just run down in my HPI E-Savage, at the exact same load, this charger finishes charging probably 20 minutes sooner than the Multiplex. To safely charge a LiPo, a charger needs to limit itself to a certain maximum voltage. Therefore, as the charge progresses, the charge current ramps down until it gets to a certain minimum charge current, and the charger says it is all done. So the completeness of the charge has to do with the minimum charge current that the charger allows before the charger thinks it is done. In other words, the precision of the contant voltage, constant CVCC circuit. This charger probably only goes down to about a 500 mA charge rate when the voltage reaches the max, while a more precise computer controlled charger will go down to 100 mA or less.

So if you are driving in a situation where you really need that last minute of runtime, you may want to invest in a higher-end charger. Typically, the ones that have a full LCD dot matrix readout and that will charge a variety of different battery types are the more precise ones. Also, remember that a charger is a one-time investment. They don't wear out, and they don't get crashed and broken. Ditto with a good computer transmitter.)
