    Is anyone using the stock phantom charger to charge 4s lipos? I just bought a 3300mah 4s battery for my discovery but have not got a charger for 4s lipos yet. Would it be safe to use the stock Phantom charger?

    Thanks.

    yes,. it's totally fine to use the Phantom charger for 4s, because it's not really a "Phantom" charger,. it's just a basic generic Lipo/Life charger that can do 2s, 3s and 4s.
    I've used it to charge one of my 4s batteries while my main charger was charging another battery.

    OK. I got a 4s lipo, and I have I hooked up to the phantom charger. It has been on the red-green flashing mode for almost 2 hours. Do I have a bad Lipo? Is this normal for the first charge on a lipo? It is a 4s, 3000 mah lipo. Occasionally one of the small light will turn off, then turn back on. But its been doing this for a long time.
