NOTE: To determine if this charger is suitable for your application, you must perform this calculation to determine the maximum amp rate the charger can supply. Divide the Watts of the charger by the Voltage of the battery pack. This will tell you the maximum amp rate the charger can deliver (Watts / Voltage = Amps). So using the Touch 680 AC as an example and a 6S LiPo battery pack, would be 80 Watts divided by 22.2 Volts, which equals 3.6 Amps. This means that the charger can supply a maximum of 3.6 amps to a 22.2 Volt 6S battery. This amp rate will gradually reduce as the battery voltage increases during the charge cycle. 

IMPORTANT:
1) DO NOT leave the battery in your model when charging
2) DO NOT leave unattended when charging
3) ALWAYS balance charge the battery
4) ALWAYS use a LiPo charging bag
5) YOU MUST use a Li-Poly specific charger to charge the pack (NiMH or NiCD only chargers WILL NOT WORK!)
6) YOU MUST not over discharge the Li-Poly battery pack
7) READ & UNDERSTAND the instructions carefully before operating this battery

This is a great little charger for the money. The touch screen and interface is really easy to navigate and set up. The included balance board is a little short, but you get lots of different charge leads for just about any type of battery you wish to charge. The size is really nice as well. It is compact and does not take up a lot of space on my pit table. I use mine to charge my starter box and RX lipos for nitro and it works great doing that. If you are looking for a great charger at a low price and you don't need to charge multiple batteries at once, this is just awesome. 5/5 Love it!!!!

Great charger. Very well suited for someone who is starting out in the hobby, or for someone who is running one class at the track. Touch screen is intuitive and easy to use.

bad charger had it for about a month and it has blown up smoke and everything. Wasn't even charging anything just pluged in to power outlet, sitting and waiting to be used and all of a sudden smoke and popping noises started coming from the charger.

This was my first "professional" quality charger. Up until now I had always used the charges included with the various craft I've purchased. I didn't know what I was missing! The various modes allow me to do just about anything I'd like (e.g. fully charge, charge for storage, discharge, etc.) and the on-screen controls are very intuitive. My only complaint (and a *very* minor one) is that it didn't come with a charge cable with an EC3 connector. I bought one from my LHS for $6, but it would have been nice to get one with the charger. All in all, this was an excellent addition to my tool chest.
