This is about my annsman charger i have it a deluxe x base, and wanting to do if it chargers lipo i have been through the settings it says it does but when you put it on to "say " 5000 and choose 3.7v thare is no where to tell the charger how many amps i want to charge it ie 4 or 5 amps, is this charger any good or will i be better off buying another like a ETRONIX AC/DC POWERPAL CHARGER / DISCHARGER / CYCLER, that i have seen on a web site, and also been reading about it in last months racer mag.....I put this in this topic as i thought i would get a quicker reply. and need to now asap

I use my X base deluxe to charge Lipo's (3600/30C 7.4V Trakpower) via a Trakpower balancer and it works fine. If your charging just the one cell then you obviously don't need to balance.

What I have found is that one you have set the capacity you cannot adjust the charge rate from 1C, and the unit automatically sets the max voltage at 4.2V per cell.

I believe it will be OK.................based purely on my own experience. And I know of one other at the Crewe club who charges his two lipos on a Graupner balance charger or a Ansmann x base deluxe without balancing, alternating between the two..


However, I am sure that you will get other opinions, soon.
