What is the best Lipo charger to get that also has a built in balancer and built in AC so you don't need an external AC?

This forum exists to discuss the software RealFlight. Try posting your question at a forum for RC in general, like rcgroups.com.

BTW: There is no "BEST", you get whatever works best for you.
For instance, I do NOT like 110 AC powered chargers because I want the capability of field charging my LiPo's off of motorcycle, car or gel batteries, like most people do.
You can purchase a separate inexpensive 12v power supply or do as I did and build your own from a PC power supply...
I have some chargers that give me very detailed information about the condition of the packs and will do extensive testing. I get graphs about the pack condition, etc. These same chargers handle everything from flight packs, through cameras, home battery packs, etc... very handy....
I also have other chargers that will simulaneously balance charge 4 or 6 packs at a time, which is very useful when I'm getting ready for a day of flying.
I also have lesser capable chargers permanently mounted into a field box... all work fine...
Think about YOUR needs and use that as a basis for a choice.
