Hi, I don't have knowledge of your listed charger, it certainly isn't a well known brand. It appears to be a low power four channel charger. There are many well know chargers around with a verifiable history that it doesn't make sense to take a chance on an unknown one. Most people today are using LiPo batteries and charge multiple batteries in parallel. The only benefit of having multiple channels would be to charge different chemistries at the same time. Take a look at the new Turnigy Reactor chargers being sold by HobbyKing. They seem to be re-badged ichargers which are well respected. You have two sizes to choose from at a very reasonable price, check them out here... http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...e_Charger.html

Here is a thread about the Reactor, hope this helps, good luck, Ron

Ok.. but I have a question. Say I am charging 3 3s 1000 batteries. Do I set my charger for 3s at 1.0 or 3s at 3.0? Right now I have 2 AC chargers.

Hi, if you are charging batteries in parallel you add the capacities, so, 3 3S1000ma batteries would be charged at 3 amps. I don't know what chargers you are using but it either chooses the cell count automatically when you hook up the balance connector or you set it manually. BTW, here is a good place to read up on parallel charging.



Cheers, Ron
