thanks for this information, what would be a good size power supply to match this balance charger to allow for charging up to 4 batteries a once - S2 lipo's . How does the following balance charger rate, I notice its comes with all the leads for charging more then one battery at a time? http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/stor ... 200W_.html
assuming I would need a big power supply to match this ?

I use this with my Accucell 6 using a 12V 5A PC power supply,

All batteries must be the same though, charge time increases with the number of packs connected.

The 4B6 gives max output of 5A per port so you will require 20A power supply if running flat out.

Thanks for this, Yes, I thought the output amps would be a key factor when charging more pack at once, allowing for a the total of battery amps. I was looking at the following balancer and power supply:
