    I have built a quad for a school project and I am in need of a cheap charger for the 1300 mAh 3s battery. Can anyone recommend one, as I have no idea what type of charger to get, thanks.

    Great deal on a good little charger. And it's an authentic SkyRC, not a knock-off.

    :rolleyes: ... If it's a real iMAX the QC sticker on the belly side will be holographic (changes color with different light angles).
    I have the B6AC and absolutely LOVE it :) It does all ALL my LiPo, NiMh, and SLA batteries perfectly.
    Having the ability to plug it into a wall socket as well as, of course, using a car battery is also very handy.
    I used to make my own chargers back in the day because I always wanted more power and better adjustability and
    accuracy with delta peak parameters but, with the advent of these latest MCU based chargers, it's hard to beat the iMAX ;)

    o_O ... Are you meaning to say that now even the "knock offs" are sporting the holographic QC stickers ?
    It used to be that sticker was the best way to know if it was "the real McCoy".

    No the hologram is what to look for so you know it's real i put it on here as people read threads when looking a chargers to buy :)

    Some of the knock-offs are probably good, but I use and always recommend real ones too. The OEM on the genuine ones is SkyRC. And you can verify the serial number on their website to confirm it's genuine.

    Have any of you tried this Tenergy 1-4 Cells Li-PO/Li-Fe Balance Charger? It is $20 with all the stars at Amazon.
