The Turnigy Accucel 6 Balance Charger utilises quality FET's and resistors to accurately balance and charge Lithium Polymer and NiMH batteries. The Accucel-6 will handle LiPo/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. Features; Microprocessor controlled Delta-peak sensitivity (NiMH/NiCd) Individual cell balancing Li-ion, LiPo and LiFe capable Ni-Cd and NiMH capable Large range of charge currents Store function, allows safe storage current Time limit function Input voltage monitoring. (Protects car batteries at the field) Data storage (Store up to 5 packs in memory) Battery break in and cycling.

This charger has a JST-XH charge plug, which makes it compatible with Zippy, HXT, TURNIGY and any pack with a JST-XH adapter.
Is there a way to charge Lipo Batteries Without Connecting the balance connector .
This charger gives me a Error MSG. I have several LiPos that I have allways charged through
the Main 11.1 connector using My Triton 2 Battery Charger.
I just found out on youtube you choose the charging type by selecting in the setup.
You can select Normal Mode = using the 2 wire plug or Balance Mode using the Balance port .
or Storage mode using the Balance port.
Thanks "the right stuff" for your reply.
You can use any amp rating, but I would reccomed AT LEAST 4 Amps. You can set the amp usage to whatever you want, so technically you could use a 1 Amp power supply, but that would be very slow charging. I: found a 4 Amp power supply laying around the house that I could use, and it works fine. Really, it is best to buy one that is at least 5 Amps so you can use the chargers full potential. Long story short, buy the one Roman reccomended for $14. It will do just fine. Happy flying!! RC2211
I am new to RC, purchased a Turnigy Accucel charger, no instructions came with it, trying to figure out how to use.
Hooked up to car battery, held start button down, said excess voltage, what does this mean?
It has a voltage protector so that the car battery doesn't fry the charger if it's over or under the specified voltage.
You need to buy a power supply that you can plug into a wall outlet. Hobby King has many for fairly cheap.
There's also a manual in the files tab of the item: www.link
First I bought a 12v power supply. When you plug the device in the first screen you come to will ask for the type of battery. press enter to and the each section will blink. enter battery specs and press enter again. Then after entering the specs on the first screen you can hold the enter button and the device will begin to charge. depending on the type of battery you have you may need to order the correct connector. I did and it works great.
Ther ar plenty of Youtube Instruction vidios . Go there and search for your charger name.
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!!!
