Best Drone Lipo Battery Chargers
The Best Drone Lipo Battery Chargers?
Since all of our quadcopters and fixed wing aircraft run on electric power we, (my Dog and cat), thought making this blog and as always; agreed.
Having a decent battery charger is very important to ensure your batteries last a long time and you get the most out of them.

If you’re using this charger (Turnigy Accucel-6 80W) to charge fat shark batteries you’ll need to upgrade the firmware of this charger!
You can’t balance charge fat shark’s batteries so you’ll end up with an error by default.
Here’s the link to the firmware:

LiPo Battery Charger Roundup
In this video roundup, I compare several LiPo chargers from the Reaktor line and others to see how they stack up against each other. This is not so much a review, as an analysis of the specifications of each charger, to help you decide which one might best fit your needs.
This video is a culmination of a series of videos on how to analyze battery charger specifications.
This is an amaZing playlist; here:
Chargers in this review are:
- Turnigy Accucel-6 80W
- Reaktor 250W 10A 6S
- Neutron 200W 10A 6S HV Touchscreen
- Reaktor 300W 20A 6S
- Reaktor 300W 20A 6S AC/DC
- Reaktor 2x 300W 20A 6S
- Reaktor 1000W 30A 6S
- Reaktor 4x 300W 20A 6S
- iCharger 308 Duo
A small addendum on what I said in the video:
In the video, I said that the QuadKore charger might be good if you just hated parallel charging. That’s not right. The QuadKore charger is 300 watts per channel, which is probably WAY more than most people are going to need to charge a single battery at 1C or 2C. These people could buy seven !!! Accucel-6 80 watt chargers for the price of the QuadKore and probably charge their small batteries even faster. The QuadKore is ideal if you need 4x 300 watts. This is likely to mean that you are charging very big batteries, 6S batteries, or you are parallel charging. If you need to charge a lot of small batteries, a lot of small chargers may be a better choice.

Information from manufacturer:
These bags are made of super strong fire retardant fiberglass nylon and will stand very high temperatures for a reasonable period of time. The bags are stitched together with an extremely strong fire retardant thread and the flap is secured in place with hook and loop tape. HOBBYTIGER upgraded logo is made of durable seams sewn by craftsmen instead of being printed on the bag like before. Ideal as a LiPoly charging bag, but superb for encasing your battery if the untoward ever happens.
