Turnigy Accucel-6 50W 6A Balancer/Charger w/ Accessories (US Warehouse)

Turnigy Accucel-6 50W 6A Balancer/Charger w/ Accessories  (US Warehouse)

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.

I need to know exactly what kind of 12v power supply will work for this that I can get off ebay

I've got one of these on the way and I have a power supply from an old laptop that is rated at 15v 5a. Will that be ok to run this charger?
 Schnozzer 741 points
That will be perfect. I use exactly the same rating on mine with absolutely no problems.

Recived the charger today and so far seems to be working well so far. The laptop charger is working well and makes this charger a great deal. Wish I had odered it sooner.

thanks all! Hopefully I'll get lucky with the menu still being available.

You´*re welcome, Ronald!

I understand that. I should have asked about the hidden calibration menu that's in other chargers.
 EstebanT 301 points
Just as a reference of age, let me tell you that my charger was manufactured in September 2013 (this information is in a decal inside the unit) and I can access the calibration menu by holding left status and enter buttons simultaneously at charger start up (hold both buttons down while connecting de power supply to the charger). Best Regards!

you'll also need a digital volt meter to determine hold many volt the battery has , then you set the charger to match using the calibration menu . do this wit several batteries to make sure calibration is right

So it won't balance cells without a balance board? I currently have a B6AC where cell #3 tops off at 4.20 and leaving 1 and 2 under at 4.12- 4.17. I just ordered 2 of these Turnigy's hoping to get better results.
 Schnozzer 741 points
An external balance board is not necessary. I have had the same experience as you describe with brand new out of the package Lipos. I have have had limited success by putting the offending packs through a few charge/discharge cycles and this seemed to even up the cell voltages (in all but one pack which must have been defective). Note that the uneven cell voltages were not peculiar to the Accucel alone, as I had similar results with other chargers on the same questionable packs.

I have this charger and use it to balance charge all my Lipo and Life batteries, love it! It works well and you can monitor the balance as well as the charge and charge rate of the unit, works just like it should, the menu takes a little getting used to, but so do many of the fancier toys we all use. I would recommend this unit to anyone who wants a fairly priced balance charger with lots of features. I have used it for a while and am very happy with this charger.

Another great product! Charges and balances my LiPo's so much better than the stock chargers that came with my helis. Runs quiet and easy to use.

Love this charger. Well made , Bright backlit readout , easy to program . Can't touch a charger like this in the USA for under $60. Bought it because my Shultz isl 330-6 ($200) needed a new e-prom chip to update to LiFe charge and would not charge below 300ma for micro stuff.. The e-prom was on backorder and it was $30. A no brainer !!!!
Like this one better anyway with balance connectors on the side so you can charge and balance at the same time. You GO Hobby King!!!
