The Verdict

Best “Full-Featured” 1S LiPo Charger 

EV-PEAK E6

LiPo Charger

The EV-PEAK E6 has just about every feature you would need in a charger. It has independent control of voltage and current for EACH of the four output channels. The user interface is simple with independent voltage selector switches (4.2V/4.35V) for each of the four channels. The output current can also be adjusted easily using the buttons and display screen. To top it off, EV-PEAK has established themselves as a reputable battery charger manufacturer. Downsides of the EV-PEAK E6? It is one of the largest and most expensive chargers on the list and can only charge 4 batteries at a time.

If you are looking for a flexible charger to give you complete control of charging your 1S batteries, this one’s for you!

Best Pocket-sized 1S LiPo Charger

Ultra-Power UP-S6

1S Battery Charger

Ever been to a tiny whoop racing event and ran out of charged batteries? Worse yet, did you happen to be in a place that didn’t have an outlet to recharge them? Check out the Ultra-Power UP-S6. It is super flexible with the options to power it with a 12V DC wall adapter or 2S-4S battery via XT60 connector. It has six battery charging channels, which is more than the EV-PEAK E6. The output current is adjustable from .1A – 1A per channel and the voltage can also be independently controlled. It also has a handy 5V USB output to charge other devices at the same time.

The user interface is a bit lacking considering you must use a single dial/button for all of the settings, but it’s hard to penalize it due to the convenience of the size. We also aren’t a hug fan of plugging the batteries in horizontally. In this configuration, the weight of the battery pulls on the connection and may cause issues later on. It seems as though the UP-S6 continues to get positive reviews, so it may not be a huge concern. Overall, this portable charger is a great mix between cost, functionality, and portability.

Best Budget-Friendly 1S LiPo Charger

Eachine 6-in-1

LiPo Charger

The Eachine 6-in-1 lipo charger has a lot of functionality and is conveniently portable. It is almost as adjustable as the UP-S6 with the current adjustments limited to 200mA or 600mA settings for each channel. In theory, the vertical battery mounting is a superior design for longevity, so this one gets a positive note for that feature. The Eachine 6-in-1 seems to be a very reasonable option given the features included and being at the low end of the price spectrum.
