Your welcome, anytime.
If you can't be kind, at least have the decency to be vague.

I always balance charge. You get voltage readout of each cell which is important. If you happen to have a bad cell in a pack you can see it during charge. If you don't balance charge you won't see a bad cell and the charger will try to reach cut off voltage resulting in overcharge in the good cells. Not good!

Your charger has balance ports. It doesn't take any time to plug in the balance lead and only about another five minutes for the charge to complete using balancing. Doesn't make any sense to me not to use it every time.

Re: lipos…help !!!!!!!!!!

If you plug the balance plug in while you are charging in normal mode, you can still read the individual cell voltages to monitor them. I only balance charge when cells get over .002 volts out of whack. Two of by new Zippy Rhinos I bought a couple of months ago were balanced when new but have not needed a balance since. Some of my older batts. need balancing about every six flights.
