I use a multi charger. There might be a pile of cheap ones in the garage that came free with various planes, if I haven't thrown them out yet.

One FMA from the dim and distant past of NiMh cells. An early FMA that does 4S LiPo while inspiring great confidence. One cheap Chinese thing that does LiPo, but without inspiring much confidence.

I have another couple of chargers that came with babyBARFS, but they do cells, not batteries. Sorry

Two. One iCharger 306B and one HobbyKing ECO6-10. Combine them with a 12v/24v 55A PS and a couple of paraboards, and I can charge up to 12 packs simultaneously.

2 in my charge box I built. Has a 47amp PS inside and I run it with a Honda EU1000i genny. I have a pile of the ones that come with micros but the only one of those I use is the 4 port Celectra which I've adjusted the pots in.

Changes the charge rate. There's one small pot for each of the four slots. If you take the screws out o the bottom and pop the two halves apart the pots can easily be adjusted with a small falt blade. You can get 2-3C charge rate depending on the size of the cells. Handy if you use good aftermarket cells for the micros like TP, Hyperion etc.

Three good ones,, about thirty or more of the "things" that come
with various planes, and helio's.

The only little ones we use are the one for the Heli-Max Nano, for
some reason the plug is reversed on this helio. The Ubers have
a built in charger that plugs in the transmitter. And one little helio
that has a built in battery and the charger plugs in the side. The Mini
series Flyzone have a special charger.

The rest we use our Thunder chargers. Two 80's and one 50w.

I have been flying electric since the early 80's so not even including the various BNF ones I have quite a few by now

Three of them get the most use since they do balanced Lipo charging.
