Hi Adrien, The charge rate will be approx. 1.2A-1.3A for a 3S LiPo and it is not adjustable. This is higher than the normal 1C (0.5A in your case) "safe" charge rate for a regular LiPo. If you have a nano-tech LiPo or some other type that has a safe charge rat of 3C or higher, then you could use this charger. Otherwise, you run the risk of damage and/or fire by charging your LiPo at too high a rate. Any full-feature charger (i.e. Accucel-6) will have an adjustable charge rate and can be set to 0.5A. Cheers, EA!
Hi Francis, The HK 60W power supply (PRODUCT ID: 9052000014-3, $10) will work fine with this charger. It comes with a USA power cord, but it's a standard type that can easily be replaced with an AUS plug. Cheers, EA!
Hi Damian, It's for LiPo only. There's no programming options/controls, as it's a simple plug'n'play design. It will damage a Li-ion battery because they have a slightly lower cell voltage and it would charge beyond that voltage into the range where damage would probably occur. Cheers, EA!
Hi Michael, You can charge a 5000mah/3S, but it will be very slow and will take up to 4 hours if the LiPo is fully discharged. The max charge rate for this charger on a 3S is approx 1.5A, but you can charge a 5000mah at up to 5A with a higher wattage charger. Cheers, EA!
Not a good charger. My charger is not charging my LiPo's anymore. It doesn't come with any manual or any review and it is giving errors that are totally unknown like "Er0","Er2". For warranty it costs very much than the charger cost.

Excellent charger, very fast and accurate. Robust metal housing. The maximum charge is 4.20 V per cell saves the batteries. I recommend! POL88/Sailor NAVIGA /

Excellent charger! Kind of like the CopterX charger but better.
1) End voltage from charger 3s 750mah: 4.20, 4.19, 4.19
2) Charger beeps when battery at full charge
3) Can use this as cell checker at the field
Very handy item. Get warm just like most basic chargers, that's fine. Does not overcharge or undercharge, which most other similar chargers have (CopterX, ESky..)
