Hi Tom,

One point I would add here, is that I find it extremely easy to charge my LiPo batteries with my "balancing" charger. 

I can't imagine that I'll ever require "On Track Charging",
because I can't envision charging ever becoming an issue for me.
(at least I can't foresee it happening)

I'm still trying to get all my trackwork installed, and so not running my locomotives all that much.

But the experiments I've tried (although rather unscientific),
have seemed to give a little bit over an hour and a half of running time (mostly switching duties),
on a 2 cell LiPo with 250 mAh.
Just saying'.

I've taken to recharging my 2 cell LiPos in the kitchen, one battery at a time, while I watch TV in the next room.
Maybe ten minutes each and Safe and Easy.
Charger shuts down when fully charged.

Have a great Christmas season, Tom........... and everyone else too.
