I don't balance charge...

Though I do also have a turnigy B4 which is a great cheap charger for ants that charges at a good speed.

@Shakey:
the turnigy B4 is ONLY a balance charger, that white plug coming from the battery is the balance lead. you DO in fact balance charge.

The B4 is not the charger I use to charge, hence " Though I do also have...".

My regular charger is not a balance charger. I've been at this nearly a decade, I know how my bots charge.
