Lipo charger/which balancer

Really like the fact that this charger can charge (4) FOUR batt's at once.

Great Planes PolyCharge4 DC Only 4 Output LiPo Charger

http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/wti0001p?&I=LXKAU0

I would also like to use a balancer or balancer's with this charger. Any and all advice will be appreciated.

Thanks, Bob Curren

my 2 cents.....
spend an extra 30 or 40 bucks and get a charger with a display. that is neat that you can charge 4 packs with that charger but you dont know how full they are among other things....i have an ice charger and i love it. the triton charger seems to be a staple in this heli community so i guess either will be good. the ice and i assume the triton can charge other types of batterys also. and you can have a profile for up to 10 batterys in the ice charger and it will charge all types of batterys lipo liion nicad nimh. hope this helps

To clarify - they are $80 each and you can find them at www.3dhobbyshop.com - that's where I got mine. They also have the EOS7i, the big brother......

the eos5i look a lot like the multiplex ln5014, in fact the specs seem to be identical.
Tower hobbies has them here http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...&I=LXKSY1&P=ML

they also have a coupon to save $20 on an order of 125 or more, so add some additional supplies and you'll get there

I agree that it's nice to have a display, and my Triton does, but when I'm at the field the PolyCharge4 keeps me flying all day. Highly recommended! Not sure about the balancing thing though.
