Re: Keeping track of battery charging

I have just received the Imax B6 Smart charger, apart from trying to figure out :scratch: :scratch: how I connect the batteries to it, I now have four chargers for all the batteries I have.

Re: Keeping track of battery charging

The abuse a garden railway loco puts on a LiPo battery is nothing compared to what the drone and R/C car guys do to them. I just bought a charger capable of charging on two separate channels at 15A.
