It’s important that you do your research first on LiPo battery, chargers and power supply before making your purchase. Here are some good reads:

iSDT Series

The iSDT charger series is no doubt by far the most popular LiPo chargers in our group. iSDT has released 3 options of different power level covering most people’s need. The interface is so easy to use and it’s been very reliable for me personally. It’s very impressive in terms of power for how compact and light weight these chargers are.

All 3 chargers are very portable and make great field charging solutions. However these chargers are relatively new to the market, so make sure you flash the latest firmware for bug fixes and new features. Here is how to flash firmware on a iSDT charger.

SkyRC iMAX B6 Mini

A simple budget charger. The B6 Mini is the upgrade of the good old B6 which was one of the most popular beginner chargers back in the days.

Price $40
Max Power 60W
Max Charging Current 6A
Built-in PSU No, DC 11V-18V
Weight 233g

SkyRC Q200

The main feature of the SkyRC Q200 charger is the quad-channel (output) capability which is basically equivalent to having 4 independent changers. That means you can charge 4 different or same batteries simultaneously! This is great for those who aren’t sure about parallel charging yet still allows you to charge multiple packs. Or if you have batteries of different cell counts, you can charge them at the same time too.

It has a built-in PSU as well as allowing DC input which means it can be used as a field charging station. Though this charger is a bit on the heavy side, weighs in at 1.3Kg.

Price $238
Max Power 2x100W, 2x50W (4 channels)
Max Charging Current 10A, 10A, 5A, 5A (each channel)
Built-in PSU Yes, DC 11V-18V
Weight 1325g

Extra – Turnigy Reaktor 300W

I know, this is the 6th charger in this list, but it’s recommended by so many people we can’t afford not to mention it. :)

The Reaktor 300W has built-in AC power supply, as well as supporting DC input. It’s a bit on the bulky side, but it’s definitely one of the most reliable LiPo chargers out there.

We recently reviewed the Charsoon Antimatter 300W, which we believe is just the rebrand of the Reaktor.

Price $128
Max Power 300W
Max Charging Current 20A
Built-in PSU Yes, DC 10V-28V
Weight 1000g

Hope you find these suggestions useful. We will continue to look for good LiPo chargers and keep this list up to date. Please leave us a comment if you have any questions.

    Get a Junsi iCharger, for example, the 4010 Duo and forget the rest, most Lipo chargers are garbage compared to Junsi. The balancer in the Junsi is probably the best, at the moment, on the market. The items shown in the article in my opinion are only useful for charging children’s toys, but not really for expensive Lipo batteries. A Junsi costs more, but makes itself paid, in view of the life of the batteries.

        I see, you compare cheap stuff with High-end? I think you never use a good charger and know the difference, it¨s like driving a bicycle or a Maybach. And serious, Turnigy? C’mon…
