do you have to use a car battery for this or a outlet

Under the "Manual" section it states that this charger comes with a JST-XH charge plug. However, it appears that the photo in the upper right corner shows more than just the JST charge plug. What cords are included with this charger?
 madruga 112 points
The JST XH are fixed on side this charger. The cords: T plug, JST 2 pins, JST 3 pins futaba type, 2 alligators, hot glow plug type.

Hello Mike. There must be a mistake in the page, because JST-XH is the model of connectros used for balance leads (which are part of batteries). Actually, balance connections in this and most balancer/chargers are JST-XH. Charge leads in this charger include aligator clips, Deans-T, and glow plug. Best Regards!

is this identical to the turnigy accucel 6 ?
 EstebanT 320 points
Not identical, but I would say they are basically equivalent products. There are very unnoticeable performance differences between them. An example is the 6A maximum charge current of Accucel against the 5A of the B6. Another difference is the cooling fan in the front of the Accucel. Time will tell if this is maybe the only weak point of this charger. B6 has no moving parts, thus less failure chances. Accucel comes with XT60 charging connectors while the B6 should come with a bigger variety of connectors, including XT60s. Both require an external power supply. Programs are equivalent. I have the Accucel, a friend of mine has the B6. I choose the Accucel simply because the B6 was backorder, but I have no complaints at all, and is not easy to recomend you to buy one or the other. In my opinion, both are excellent choices. By the way, in case you choose to buy the B6, get the genuine one. You can find many videos on the web comparing genuine and fake/copy and I would not buy the fake. Best Regards!

Hello, what is the best battery rating from turnigy nano to use at hpi firestorm flux,i just bought the 3s 2650mah, any idea?
 EstebanT 320 points
I don't know that truck in detail, but is important to know exactly what motor & ESC combination you have before choosing a LiPo battery. Can you provide this information? Thanks!
 Wan Mohd 1 points
Hello esteban, It says the esc compatible for 11.1v 3s and the motor is 4800kv, the esc is hpi flux vapor pro .i dont know if i buy a lipo rating 6k will burn my esc or not.
 EstebanT 320 points
Perfect. 3S LiPo is compatible with that combination. The battery capacity will not damage your truck. The higher the capacity, the longer endurance you will get (as a vague reference, AA Alkalines and AA NiMh provide 1500 to 2500 mAh capacity). The only limit will be the battery compartment size in the truck (which doesn't seem to be a problem) and the weight allowance. Another detail to take into consideration is the battery connector. The ESC of this truck is a Deans-T. Medium size Nano-Techs are fitted with XT60 and higher capacity ones (2650mAh and higher) with 4mm bullet connectors. Depending on the capacity you choose, will need the applicable adapter (or connector replacement). Best Regards!

Н*ello! What Item Includes? IMAX B6 original? Who the manufacturer of the device? С*heck iMAX B6 is available in the ****skyrc****/antifake/indexen.php ? Regards, Vitalij

Sky RC are the manufacturer, but there are many copies of this charger. This is the real McCoy! You get a bunch of wires with T connectors included and various adapters.

Not a bad charger, has some good features and it's not pricey. Does not have precise measuring like my other charger but is good enough and within the specified range. Display of my B6 had developed a fault after only 16 uses. Got a replacement after spending fair amount of time and money. I would recommend e-Station BC-6, BC-8 or Mega Power Infinity-960SR instead of this medium quality product.

Very good charger with only one problem: balancer is not accurate. Have found the problem ( 1 percent resistors used instead of 0.1 percent resistors). I am in contact with SkyRC about a possible improvement in the design.

But as said, besides the balancer incaccuracy this is a great product!

works well but cell # 2 reads a higher voltage than reality. ends up with mismatched voltage when balancing.

Nice charger. It will be pesrfect and complet with a proper balance function. Unfortunatelly the cell are unbalanced to the tune of 0.1V and this is to much. I end up using an external balancer. I hope to fix it in the future with the proper rezistors.

This is just IMAX charger. It's cheap, but all of them suffer the same problem. Voltages they report differ from reality. My charger shows 4.20V on all cells when there is 4.19V, 4.17V, 4.21V, 4.16V, 4.22V, 4.27V. The last value is much too high.
So before you buy one - read threads on rcgroups.com describing how to make it more reliable (resistors change and/or charger calibration).

@John Cook: B5 suffers the same problem.
