Just an all round good product for the money! Cheap. Good functionality. Broard range of options. For the money, I'd recommend it. If you require more charge A, then I'd suggest hobbyking Eco6-10 if you are on a budget.

Mine has a balance charge problem. If I connect balance cable, charger stop with "BATTERY VOL ERR CEL CONNECT" error, but balance cable is well connected. I can do only a normal charge because every kind of other charge need balance cable connection. What can I do?
 Eryczqiu 17 points
I had that issue when a battery was extremely discharged (say a cell below 3.0v), had to give it a punch on a normal charge mode and then charge again as balance. Could try that.

Thanks but it isn't my case. Cells aren't below 3.0v and I have tried with others batteries without changes.
 Aussie pete. 184 points
100% sure you have the right cell count selected? What happens when you select auto?. I do know 'some' of these chargers come with loose balance boards and need a bit of solder to fix it. But I'd just let hobbyking know the issue, take a short video of the issue and they will either refund or send a new one out to you. There really good like that. Gave me a refund on my HK eco6-10 straight up when it had an issue. But if ur good with elec, just check the balance board where it connects to circuit board.

I have tried with another charger and it work well. It isn't a connection problem. I think it is a problem with balance section, but warranty has expired. I bought a new one.

Mine have a slight vibration feel when its powered... is there something wrong with it...?
 Aussie pete. 184 points
Vibration? Only thing that could cause vibration would be the fan, which is normal. No other electrical component could cause vibration even if it was faulty. If its working fine, No odd noises, I'd just leave it be.

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.

Very good charger,

Not very accurate in lipo's but can be upgraded by buying a replace kit on the web.
