I hear ya! From what I've heard from quite a few guys who've been doing it for years, charging at higher than 1C it doesn't shorten the life of the pack. Personally I've never charged at more than...

The Blinky balancers are definitely not up to the task if the battery is very far out of balance. Most of the time the Blinky would continue to try to balance for quite a while after the charge...

So far I' m leaning towards the PL6. One of my main criteria is safety and I get a good feeling about the PowerLab series. It is really frustrating trying to wade through all the info (read BS)...

Unfortunately no porch. More packs are good and I am leaning towards the FMA charger. I haven't had time to run through the data. What is the difference between the PowerLAb 6 and 8?
