    Im looking for a new battey charger.

    I have a question about this battery charger. Does it look like a quality charger for a maximum lipo 3s battery life?

    not sure about the brand but it looks like a good charger. the winner here is the balance charging. this charger should do the job. just unplug it when your done with it.

    According to the specs, it will charge a 3s lipo but at a slow rate (6.0 amps). It also includes a balancer which is required for lipo's: maybe not required but I wouldn't charge without a balancer.

    Pay attention to shipping charges when you buy anything *******, and shipping time from Asia. Last time I ordered ******* it took weeks to arrive.

    Not exceptionally high quality, no. Will likely need to be calibrated. Has a cheap fan that is dying to fail. It is perhaps a minimum-quality charger. Is it good enough? Depends how attached you are to your packs.
    I characterize that model as one of the "$50 battery cookers."

    Spend the money on a charger. That is the one thing I cannot go cheap on. I bought a thunder power tp610c 4 years ago and it still works flawlessly today. The new one is AC/DC can be found for 100
