Trust me im an engineer.

The biggest lipo for most cars is 150mmx50x50mm. Lipo has a power density limit. This size battery are around 100w capacity.

Im looking for a charger of 5amps of above with 2 or 4 channels thar can charge a 6s. 6s @@ 5amps is nise
No offense but... I'm also an engineer so I'm not sure what that has to do with you thinking you're right? The battery has both a C rating for charging AND a C rating for discharging... The C rating for charging is obviously going to affect the total wattage the charger needs to deliver the amps required at the voltage of the pack... To be clear... we're not talking about the capacity of the battery but the charge rate. The lipos that are rated 5C for charging allow you to fully charge a lipo in about 15 min not the 1 hour that a standard 1C charge rate requires.

But... I'm not here to get in an argument so please proceed with whatever you wish to believe. As already stated though, the Icharger line is a good one.

Re: Recommend Me a LIPO Charger

If you are looking for a higher end charger i would recommend the Hitec X2 400watt or the Hitec X2 800watt dual port chargers. Vrey nice chargers and very easy to use.
