The only source at the moment is direct from FMA - at some point they will ship them to Horizon Hobby and then any local hobbystore will be able to get them.
I ordered direct from FMA, got the chargers no problem in Canada.

I too shipped one over the border. Cost whatever they charge plus GST/PST and $5 handling charge. Oh well.

Great.... A LiPoly charger that won't charge any of my packs without balance taps! Does anyone else find this rather annoying?
All in the name of "Safety" I suppose.

You buy packs without balance taps?

Only my tired, old ones lack taps. And they don't have much life left in them anyways!

Hello, Jim....

Most all my packs are small TP ProLites... 480mAh, 730mAh and 910. No balance taps on any. Don't seem to need them judging from my 1320 pack which does have them. I really feel that this whole balance thing is WAY overrated. Even my old packs (Kokam 340 and Apache 1200) are still doing great without taps.
All these batteries get used often in a 3D IFO with 311 flight hours on it.

Actually it is in the name of longer service life.

No, I don't. There are lots of choices out there for charging packs without taps or without using the taps. The whole point of this charger is to take care of each cell in the pack individually - which requires access to each one.....

If you wire the taps on any pack using the FMA pigtails, you will not need an adapter to use your CellPro

I believe seat belts usage could also be considered an annoying inconvenience, yet we use them in the name of "Safety". The only cars without seatbelts are ancient ones.
