    Anyone use the HiTec X4 charger or other similar charger to charge their 5200 batteries? I made my first adapter (plan to make 4) but before I continue making them or plug it on for what I think should just be "charge" and "3S", I thought I better ask first.

    I charge my DJI 5200 batteries with an iMax B6 set to "PB" (battery type) and 2.5 amps. (I'm not in a hurry so prefer a lower rate of charge.)

    It seems quite odd to charge a lipo using a lead-acid battery setting but that's the way it is -- ask "El Guano" for the reason; I don't have a clue. But, it works just fine. Do not try to charge the 5200 as a lipo -- it won't work.
