Turnigy Accucel-6 50W 6A Balancer/Charger w/ Accessories

Turnigy Accucel-6 50W 6A Balancer/Charger w/ Accessories

The Turnigy Accucel 6 Balance Charger utilises quality FET's and resistors to accurately balance and charge LiPoly and NiMH batteries.
The Accucel-6 will handle LiPoly/LiFe up to 6S and NiMH/NiCd up to 15S and shows individual cell voltage during charge with realtime updates throughout the charge cycle.
The intuitive menu system means charging and cycling is an easy process and can be done quickly and accurately either at the field by using a 12v input such as a car battery or at home with a 12v power supply.
Bundled with the Accucel-6 is a bunch of input and output wires which should satisfy any charging requirement.

ATTENTION.
There are several chargers now entering the China market that look similar to the Accucel. These chargers are produced with cheaper FET's and are unfortunately much less accurate and very unsafe. There has been reports of the copied chargers over-charging packs and not balancing correctly.
The Accucel-6 is the first charger in the market with this PCB layout Circuit design. Any charger with the same circuit diagram is most definitely a copy. We have tested the copied chargers ourselves, their componentry is of a very low quality and the manufacturing company that has produced the copy has used a process of duplicating our CPU(MCU)'s hex file and flashed a similar chip(MCU) to produce a similar product. This means they do not have the original code and therefore cannot bug-test(QC) or update the charger at any point.
Our chargers have CE and RoHS certification, proving their safety.
Plus, thousands of customers the world over have used our chargers with excellent results.
Your batteries are expensive. We understand this and thats why we will not carry low-quality charging devices.
Trust only in TURNIGY® quality charging devices.

Hi, Is it possible to upgrade the Firmware of this charger to enable it to charge LiHV Batteries?
 Jernej 4 points
No, but take a look at "Turnigy Accucel-6 80W 10A charger". It`s also more powerfull (80W compared to 60W).

Hi! Can i charge with this charger the Turnigy nano-tech 2100mAh 3S1P 20~40C LiFePo4 Transmitter Pack (EU Warehouse) ? It´*s LiFePo4 . The menu charger only says Lipo... Thks
 anikeev 1525 points
This charger can be used with LiFe. Just go to User Set Program, then to LiXX V Type, and select proper voltage: LiFe(3.3V),Lilo(3.6V) or LiPo(3.7V). After that Menu charger will say different Li-type.
 EstebanT 1012 points
Hello ALvega! Please, click on the "FILES" tab above and find file "How to LiPo-LiFe-LiIo setup" (or "LiPo-LiFe-LiIo-setup(Spanish)" if you prefer) for instructions on how to shift from one battery type to another. Hope this helps you. Regards!

my discharge voltage setting for LiPo 2S is set to 6.0V - this means deep discharge. How can i change this value?
 anikeev 1525 points
Check user manual in FILES tab - you can get detailed instructions there for every menu setting.
 Florian 6 points
tried to do so, but there is no option to change the setting. (cell V is set to 3.7V. )
 anikeev 1525 points
You mean when you select 3S it shows 11.1V, but when you choose 2s it shows 6.0V? Thats strange.

i am not sure if this charger is compatible with this lipo battery, http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/uh_viewitem
.asp?idproduct=10308 .
i want to buy both items but not sure if they will work together.
 Aaron 23 points
Yes, but you will need to pick up a 5.5 mm to banana plug charge lead (like id product=18098)
 handyjap 799 points
The charger seem to have been discontinued. If you look at the replacement charger "Turnigy Accucell-6 50W 6A Balancer/Charger LiHV Capable" www.link and at at the battery you want, you will find that you will need either an adapter from 4mm Banana male connectors or from a XT60 female connector to a male and a female 5.5mm Bullet connectors like "5.5MM to Banana Plug Charge Lead Adapter" PRODUCT ID: 5.5MM-CHR. You will also need a power supply to get the DC input voltage. I bought a 'HobbyKing 105W 15V/7A Switching DC Power Supply" PRODUCT ID: 9052000023-3.
 anikeev 1525 points
This charger is compatible, but it will not work out of the box. You need to have proper power supply (sold separately), proper adaptor for main power wires (4mm male bullet to 5.5mm male-female bullets). Notice, that this charger will charge this battery only at 2.5-2Amps - that's two times longer than possible. I recommend to buy charger with power approx 100W, to charge this battery quicker.

Hi.I have had this charger for 2 years.never let me down.but a few times now.it say hi voltage input.and stops changing. But when I try again.it is alright
 EstebanT 1012 points
Hello Jason. Can you please write the correct error message? "Hi Voltage Input" does not seem to be the right one. Normally, input voltage errors can be solved by using a correct power supply.
 waynemia 530 points
This will normally happen when you have a problem with the battery voltage overall is too high for the configuration selected. There is also a similar message when an individual cell has a voltage that is too high. Another potential issue is if the input voltage from the power supply exceeds 17VDC. This can cause an input voltage high error. Hope this helps.
 anikeev 1525 points
This can be caused by power supply - check it with voltage meter. If everything looks OK, then remove case and take a close look at capacitors - probably some of them got "pregnant" (top of the cilynder is not flat). In this case you can still use the charger, but it's recommended to replace pregnant capacitors.

Accucel-6 is a really nice product. The firmware of thie charger is exactly same as of any other 50W charger. It has a blue backlit which is easily readable in the sunlight or in dark.
Along with the cigarette lighter adapter, you can use this to charge your batteries while driving down to the field.
http://www.hobbyking.com www.link ANY SPACES IN THE ABOVE LINK)

The buttons are good and it has all metal body which is really good as compared to the Hobby King $18.99 charger.

This charger comes with a multiple charge lead connector which you can use with any kind of battery.

You can even calibrate the charger if you feel the readings are a little incorrect.

For calibrating this charger follow these steps:

1.) Power off the charger.
2.) Press and hold the (dec" and "start" buttons.
3.) Power on the charger. (you will hear 3 beeps in a row). Keep the buttons pressed.
4.) You will enter into the calibration screen where the voltage detected by the charger is displayed on the screen (voltage on output leads).
5.) Attach any battery to the output leads of the charger.
6.) Using a digital multimeter, correct the reading of the voltage by pressing "inc" or "dec" buttons till the reading matches with that of the multimeter.
7.) Press "Stop" when you are done.
8.) Your charger is calibrated now.

You can repeat these steps as many number of times

I'm very happy with this charger.
I tested with my cheap voltmeter the final volatge and it seemed lower than displayed by the charger.
So i tried to calibrate it :

Hold on "ENTER" and "-" button at while powering on the charger.
The charger display something like this :

plus00 VOL: x.xxV
SAVE(ENTER)

Then plug in a battery in the charging plug and you can see the voltage detected by the charger.
Now you can adjust it by pressing plus or -

I just have to find a good voltmeter because i don't trust my voltmeter more than the accucel !

I ordered 2 of these chargers from HobbyCity, as I wanted a simple, easy-to-use charger for my Li-Po batteries. I found the charger very user-friendly, even though no manual is supplied with it. However, I have found a link to the charger manual here which may be useful to www.link read it through, the Turnigy Accucel-6 has even more capability than I first believed just by pressing the buttons!! The balance functions work really well and much information can be obtained from the charger displays. This is a really impressive charger, all the more so given the price.

Thanks again HobbyCity for a great product!!

Bought one as support to my standard field charger (MPX LN5014). Some of the features I like (vs old charger):
plusbright display easily readable in the sun.
plusbalancer functionality with detailed voltage display of all cells.
plusfaster LIPO loading without the final "trickle charge"
plusstore discharge, memory etc.
plusnice set of connecting cables.
pluslow shipping weight.
-only visible drawback is the black housing, which will tend to get hotter in direct sunlight.

Nice charger, not so good discharger.

Good: 1) bright display easily readable
2) balancer functionality with detailed voltage display of all cells on one screen.
3) Memory for batteries
4) USB data collection
5) Many connecting cables.
6) Cheap to buy
7) Can be used with Twin pack charge lead to charge two 3s1p: www.link Good, easy to use menu

Bad: (reason for 4 stars)
1) Discharge function is only so so. With a 3s1p you can discharge at a maximum of .5a and with 6s1p just .2a so it can take all night just to discharge a pack.
2) Fan makes a lot of noise, this is probably due to the charge's small size they had to put a small fan that moves a lot of air to cool it down.
It is a budget charger with above budget performance, you don't need to discharge a lot of full packs get it.

Note to the review below, you need to plug in the power and balancing port at the same time to balance charge.
