Works well – E_Sky Balancer Charger for 7.4V and 11.1V R/C Li-Poly Battery (EK2-0851) Reviews

Pros:
-A simple charger for a great price.
-Charging 11.1v (3 cell) 800mAh mostly, works well.
Cons:
Plugs fit a bit too tight on mine, but no problem.
The charger seems to take long, charging every cell seperatly after another (but this balances them rather well).
Other:
Anything from 750 up should do fine. Smaller packs would get stressed too much.
Use any 1500mAh 12v ac/dc adapter, or modify a computer atx as suggested here allready.
12V 1A Adapter might allready work instead of 1,5A, so $4,50 adapters such as sku.15989, sku.15991, sku.15992, sku.15990 might do the job (untested!)
Do not worry if it takes longer then suggested in the manual, nor worry about charging it longer then the 2 hours mentioned.
Just never charge lipo without beeing arround, and put it on a non-flamable + non-conducting surface. If the Lipo battery gets very hot, disconect! This indicates battery or charger deffect.
Bottomline:
Buy. Nice travel charger as it can also operate on car batteries.
