    I have several batteries but only the original charger. What are the alternatives for faster charge? (if at all possible) or even charging two batteries at once? Also any suggestions on sites to buy them at? Thanks in advance

    Bump - anyone know the answer to this? I'd love to get a few more going at once... something tells me I'll be upping my purchase from 3 extras to 10 extras soon enough :)

    There are tons of Lipo chargers out there to choose from .. (and all of them blow the stock Phantom charger out of the water).

    depends on how much money you want to spend,. and if you want to balance charge many different ones at the same time.

    I went with the most economical route tho
    - I bought the Accucel 6
    -with a 50w power supply
    -and a parallel charging board (so I can charge multiple batteries at a time.
    -and picked up lipo battery checker

    all from the online USA warehouse of Hobbyking.com.

    if you want to go the high route, Hitek makes some great chargers

    I got this one and I'm extremely happy with it. Make sure to also grab a power adapter (10$) unless you already have one the right specs.

    ... Use the banana to battery adapter that came with your original charger or buy a spare for like 5$.
