Default charger question

I have a b450 with 2 2200mah batts and was looking at this charger as a step up from the stock charger but do not wish to spend too much money (around this price range) how does this charger hold up? http://www.ebay.com/itm/Imax-B6-Lipo...ht_1637wt_1168

Skip it. 50W is too slow! Considering your price range, get one or more of these. Great chargers for the price. I had 5 a few years ago. Or better yet get ONE good charger (1000W) with parallel cables and you will be for years... and save money in the long run.. buy cheap buy twice.

You should probably save up just a tad more and get one of the chargers on this page... these are the ones we all wish we bough first because most everyone ends up with them eventually. I have the 1000W iCharger 306b that charges up to six 6s5000mah packs at once.. and in only 45 mins.

Very well then I think I will start with the Starter package on Icharger 106b when finances permit.

Good choice. A solid 10A charger. Many of us use one of these power supplies (cheap and strong) or a deep cycle battery for power.
