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 would like to use this charger for 1S 350mAh Li-Po's. How many single cell Li-Po's can I charge at the same time? Do I have to buy anything in addition to the power supply? (Parallel charging boards?) Thx
 JanComputerman 15 points
If you can find a parallel board with the same battery connectors as your small lipos then yes but making up a cable with bananas on one end for the charger and parallel connectors on the other would be another choice if you are handy with a soldering iron. Just be careful when connecting the batteries in parallel that they are close to the same charge level or else you will have some current flowing between the higher and lower cells. If you build your own cable you can use lighter gauge wire to limit the cross current flows in this situation.

I'm having a bit of trouble finding a decent power supply for a good price. Not sure if it's because of everything it specifically needs or I'm not looking well enough. Someone think they can point me in the right direction please?

I use the Hobbyking 60w power supply and it does the job and its 10 bucks.
 JanComputerman 15 points
I got the same power adapter last year and it often browns out under load so I would recommend the 15 volt 5 amp for a little less money ... Not sure why it's less ... Or the 15v 7amp 105watt for a few dollars more.

I personally use a computer power supply to feed 12 volts. It works great because you get a great price and its easy to get going. It also offers more than one voltage at once if that interests you.

Can I use a laptop power supply with this charger, 19v output?
 Wireball 1 points
I wouldn't recommend it - the rated input voltage range is 11-17V. It might be within tolerances, but one would be pushing it 12% beyond its rated max input voltage.
Milad  1 points - 9/28/2014
 
Can you help me please, which of the following power supplies will work with this charger: 1) 12V 5A Input: 100-240V AC 50/60Hz Out put : 12V 5.0A 2) 60w Power Supply Input: 100v-240v ~ 50/60hz 1.5A Output: 15v / 4A 3) Input: 100~240VAC~50/60Hz 3A Output: 15VDC / 7A Thank you in advance
 Wireball 1 points
Any of those three should work fine, as they supply the desired 11-17V input voltage range, and meet or exceed the charger's rated 60W power rating. I've used the Accucel 6 with a number of under-rated power supplies (as small as a 12V * 1.5A = 18W), and it performs well as long as I don't exceed the max wattage of the power supply (otherwise the power supply gets hot or the charger loses power).

P.S. Where are you finding these power supplies? They sound pretty hefty.
 JanComputerman 15 points
These are all the hobbyking 15 volt power supplies with the correct power plug which fit into the accucel6 ... I got the 60 watt one but find it is a little under powered and recommend the 15volt 5amp or the 7amp 105watt adapter.

What size power tip does this charger accept? The industry standard 2.1mm x 5.5mm tips I have don't fit.
 Andrew 13 points
the Inner diameter of the tip is 2.5mm. Outer diameter 5.5mm. Here is the cord i purchased to plug in. www.link

Andrew - How many amps output does the 12V PSU have to be?? - I'm talking about the one supplying power to this unit - instead of connecting it to a 12V car battery. ** I downloaded the manual(s) and read through them, but that info is not provided. ** Thanks in advance for yours and/or anyone else who contributes an answer. ** Best Regards :-))

It depends on what amperage (rate) you choose to charge your battery packs at. It's perfectly acceptable with 12V * 1.5A = 18W AC adapters for smaller batteries (e.g. 1.5A 3S LiPo), but you can't charge larger packs very fast with so little power - you have to keep the charging wattage within the rated wattage of the AC adapter. TESTING: 12V * 1.5A = 18W AC adapter driving the Accucel 6, charging an 18.0V battery pack at 24.0V. TEST RESULTS: At 1.3A * 24V = 31W, the charger overloaded the 18W AC adapter, lost power, and rebooted. At 1.0A * 24V = 24W, the charger ran fine, but the 18W AC adapter quickly became very hot. At 0.7A * 24V = 16.8W, both the charger and the AC adapter worked fine.

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!!!
