Charging

#1
My charger has options of charge AND balance charging.

I know balance charging keeps the cells at nice, equal voltages, but is it a thing I should only use once in a while? Does it wear out the battery a bit faster?

Balance charging takes more time, but is better for the battery in the long run. I pretty much only balance charge all lipo batteries > 1s.

Makattack, I'm pretty sure you are also balance-charging your 1S LiPos. :-D

There is a simple rule: If it has a balance plug, charge it balanced.
