Is this charger suitable for charging 4S 4000mah batteries? i think this may be slow? If so what alternatives would be good?
 EstebanT 729 points
Hello Michael. This charger is excellent, but is limited to 50W. Considering 4cells x 3,7V per cell x 4A = 59.2W (for a 1C charge rate), I recommend you the 80W 10A Turnigy Accucell charger (Product ID: 9052000071-0). The price is USD 29.49 at the International Warehouse. Better choice in my opinion. Best Regards!

Is it possible to charge 1S 200mAH lipo using this charger?
 Tucker 14 points
Yes, there is a single cell plug, and you want to charge it at .2 amps. It should work great!

Does this plug into a 110V power source?
 EstebanT 729 points
Hi Vashon! You cannot plug this charger directly to AC power source. Need a DC adapter/Power Supply like Product ID: 9052000023-3, or a PC CPU modified PS, or a 12V car battery, or equivalent. Regards!

So ive heard that cheaper chargers could cost you in the long run with damaging the batteries. Have any of you found that to be true and of this model charger does that apply?
 Tucker 14 points
This charger (genuine) is just perfect for everyday charging. I have been using it for a while on 1s,2s, and 3s lipos, getting great balancing. So far, this charger has proven to work well for the price

I'm trying to charge and balance this battery (
with this charger. Do I use the small tamaiya adapter to charge it? What lead do I need? When do I use the JST plug? Does this charger come with a JST plug to balance my battery?
 EstebanT 729 points
You must connect both battery wires to the charger. The discharge wire is to be connected to the main output of the charger usng a suitable connector/adapter. The balance lead is to be directly connected to the four pin balance port (for 3S batteries).

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!

very good charger for the price, charges everything, has safety features. I 've found the reported problem of balancing lipos not too serious. I have measured differences of 0,04 to 0,05 volts (4,2 to 4,25). It is still annoying especially as the voltage exceeds 4,2. Overall I would recommend it as a first do-it-all charger

Good charger, but the balancer does not work very exactly. Overall worth the money.

I got mine about 2 weeks ago. Charges all my NiMh and LiPo's without a hitch. Very good balancer.

The discharge rate is quite slow - but sufficient. Who really needs to discharge at high rates?

Only drawback it has is that it doesn't come with it's own AC adapter. You can either connect it to your car battery or buy a power supply for it (which might not be cheap, remember we need 5AMPs at 12V!).

In any way - spend the few extra bucks and get a REGULATED adapter - it's a shame to burn out this charger.

If it came with it's own power supply I would give it 5 stars with no hesitations.

A pesar de no ser extremadamente exacto funciona muy bien. Mucho mejor que el b5 porque descarga y acepta A123.
Experiencia con LiPO 3S y 4S perfecta
