    Li-po Charge or Balance charge?

    I have a imaxx b6 charger, Just a quick question,

    Should I always “Balance charge” Or is “charging” with the balance cable plugs in the same?

    I ask coz “Balance charge” takes a long time when compared to “charging”

    Balance charging is better for your lipos. It dosen't hurt to just charge sometimes

    If balance charging takes significantly longer time than non-balance charging, then something is seriously wrong with your pack and/or charger.

    I also got that charger, and it SUCKS at balancing.
    This is a signature.

    hey I use that same charger too... I use the balance charging feature - some minor balancing issues 0.02 to 0.03 variance.
    shouldnt really matter right since its a very small difference?

    I havent tried the straight charging as I always thought for Lipos more than 1 cell you're supposed to use the balance feature?
