    Found this simple new charger

    http://buy.traxxas.com/product_info....oducts_id=9821

    I have not seen this lipo charger on the traxxas website so I am assuming it is new, typically these small chargers are included with RTR lipo vehicles so I hope that is where traxxas is headed with these
    I like turtles.

    Its looks more for the 1/16 cars. also seems to have no balancer so you would need an external one.
    Pretty much looks like you use it till you can get a better charger.

    The charger’s fixed 800mAh output makes it an ideal, inexpensive solution for charging Traxxas’ 1400mAh (#2823) and 2200mAh (#2820) Power Cell LiPo batteries. Plug several into a power strip and these chargers are very convenient for charging higher-capacity LiPo packs when fast charging is not required.

    It has balance ports. It reads "Balance Charger." See the larger pic:

    It comes with a board for 2S thru 6S JST-XH taps. The dual charging adapters are optional.

    I think that runs under the lines of "If you charge other brand with this and blow your house up..."

    My LHS has a parallel board that fits and plugs into my Ez peak 6 amp but I'm afraid to use it because it's not factory...probably works fine but meh, the msrp on the Traxxas one is the same so I'll just wait.

    Yeah you could read it like that if you charge other batteries with the adapter and not with the Traxxas ez peak plus charger that will happen...I would like to know if someone has got the adapter already tried it with different batteries other than traxxas to see if it works ok and the outcome where they charged right or not? and if they used it with a different charger other than traxxas and the outcome but if i breaks any rules/guidelines here on the forum to post then please PM me over the results thank you very much as i want to get one to charge my 2 2s lipos on my new charger i am getting this week/next week.
