lipo battery charger advice

Ok so im in the market for a new lipo battery charger. im currently using a factory lipo charger that came with my 450 Heli. Which is a Dynam balance charger 2-3 cell 1.0A small box charger this charger takes like 4Hrs to charge a 2200mah 3s lipo. i bought 2 more 2200mah 3S lipo battery's.

I want to upgrade my battery charger to reduce my charge waiting time and so i can charge more than 1 battery at a time, using a standard battery balance plug.

Any suggestions on a good charger to buy and if need a good power supply to pair with it?

Yeah, a good power supply would help a lot. 2200mah needs 2.2A to charge in one hour, but if you factor in inneficiency (We're not working with superconductors here), you'll be pulling 3A from the wall. You think your 1A wall wart is getting hot now?

ICharger 206b+ and old PC/ Server power supply. Relatively cheap but versatile enough. I use it to charge my micros (Msrx, Mcpxs) to 450, 500 and 600 Trexs. Im using the Diy server power supply that's why i can parallel charge up to the max limit of this charger quite fast. On the field i'm using a used deep cycle batt as my ps and charge low lipos while i fly using the same 206b+.

iCharger 206B or iCharger 3010B is best for you. They both have high power balancing features. I can say that other chargers are good. But it depends on what you need.

If you find an old and dusty Nintendo cube, you have got 12v and over 3A
