Okay I've been looking through the forums and I'm still confused.

I'm looking at this traxxas charger:

and it says it can charge LiPo...But than you can buy these "Balancing Boards"

So if I buy the Charger do I need these boards. Are LiPos that much harder to use. NiMH NiCD packs seem so much easier.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
