Question
Best LIPO 3S charger w/balancing

I have searched and read a lot of threads already. Problem is my needs for a charger is quite different from many on this forum. I will only need to charge what i think is S3 LiPo batteries. 1200mAh 11.1V 20C (using them for airsoft). I would like something that balances properly and is high quality, but i don't need something that can charge up monster batteries in 2seconds.

So what is the best charger for up to about 100dollars that keeps your lipos running at peak performance. Also maybe a small charger w/AC for bringing in backpack when the main charger is to bulky.

Chargers I am considering as of now are the:
Accucel-6 or the iCharger 106B
Edit: For small charger with AC i was thinking maybe the http://www.venom-group.com/2-3-Cell-...e-Charger.html

TL: DR: best high-quality charger for lipo 3S(no biger) when power is no important criteria.

Did some more searching and came to what i think is the optimum choice to fit my needs.
May main charger became the iCharger 106B+in addition I choose some parallel cables to charge more than one LiPo at the time. Seeing as i only use 1200mAh LiPo's the need for anything beefy is pointless. Not planing to charge over 1C



As I mentioned I play airsoft and the need for a light charger to bring to games. This is probably not a very good charger so hoping the iCharger will fix any unbalance when I get back from trips.

Wise choice on the iCharger. It is my favorite <$100 high power charger.

I didn't think you could find a better charger out there for less than $100 than the CellPro.

This has to be the simplest and easiest charger and one of the best ever made. Isn't it?
