Default Charger and PS for 330X-S

Will the FMA Cellpro 10s and iCharger P350 Power Supply be plenty to charge the batteries needed for the 330X-S? Is this a good combo to start off with?

I have found my ACME charger to be very good - I think there are a number of companies that use the same box and put their logo on it but basically all the same:

Ace, Turnigy, etc.

The nice thing about this is it gives off a warning when full and turns off. It also has fast, balance, and storage charging modes. Make sure the connectors of the chargers are compatible with your batteries (there are like 4 different kinds) - although if you look hard enough you can probably find adapters to go from one to anything else.

Anyone else use this combo? This charger is a 10 amp/250w charger and PS is 300w/15v/23A. Still learning and not sure what all this means but will this be good enough to charge 2200mAh 25C 3S Batteries?

I would really suggest one with a display so you can see what is happening. My first charger just had a flashing led that changed to solid when it was done and that was always a bit disconcerting (you never knew exactly what was going on). You definitely want options like storage and balance. You want to store lipos at lower value. You also want one that can do multiple battery types like 2S or 3S, etc. My old charger took up to 4 hours to charge a single 3S. I now do that in about 30 - 45 minutes with the new charger.

If you are into exploring batteries I would also recommend a battery monitor (attached to the battery while it is flying) so you don't accidentally drain your lipo batteries and destroy those.

When you hear the low voltage alarm, you have to get the 330X to the ground quickly - low battery and the 330X exhibits erratic flying behavior.
