lithium battery charger

Does anyone know of a good charger to maintain lithium ion batteries? Perhaps a float/trickle charger.

From what I understand apparently not Ian. Seems the lithium ion batteries are more "sensitive" or require a different circuitry than a regular battery charger.

I got one of these. Originally purchased to charge my li-po powered RC truck but it will charge damn near anything you might run across.

Here's an article to better explain why a conventional charger is bad to use on lithium batteries:

Re: lithium battery charger

Considering that LiPO4 batteries hold their charge almost indefinitely, (unless you have a dataTool connected) all you have to do in the unlikely event that you run it empty, is to charge it up on a normal charger until the voltage reaches the max. Then disconnect it. Don't try to use lead-acid optimates on them, if you need to trickle charge because of anti-theft trickery, use a dedicated LiPO4 charger. I've beeen running a LiPO4 for over a year (on a 929) now, could not be happier.
