The image doesn't match the product description. On the faceplace, at the lower left corner the genuine charger should have iMAX/B6 printed inline (not iMAX over B6). The SKYRC logo should be shown at the lower right corner of the faceplate in place of the certification logos. I don't doubt that it's the genuine article. It's just the wrong photo. The photo is that of the clone version.

If i wanted to charge batteries on the go (in a proper case) what battery could i use to power this or could i use a different contraption to charge batteries with another battery? Thanks

Hi, I have used a solar panel with controller and 12v battery to power this charger, just need good sunlight. or could use a spare car battery

It depends on what battery you want to charge. I power this outdoors with a cheap 5200mah, 3 cell pack ( input voltage is 11-18v, so 4 cell should work too) I can recharge a 2200 to 100% twice, with plenty of reserve.

Can anybody reccomend the power adaptor for the iMax B6 for both UK mains with a UK plug (240 volt) and a car adapter for the field that plugs into the cigarette lighter sockret? Or would any unversal phone jack be ok? Also do I need adapter leads for a Syma quad copter batteries 3.7v 500 amh? If so which ones? Many thanks Thanks

there are good old IBM laptop chargers, 16v and 4.5 amps. If you are lucky, you find a charger that has both car adapter and UK mains build to it. Thou there should come cables which to hook up it the car battery, if needed, but the cigarette lighter socket is much nicer solution Just search IBM 16v 4.5a charger 72w

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
