How effective will this be for 2- ZIPPY Compact 5800mAh 7S 25C Lipo Pack? ID: ZC.5800.7S.25 I have been searching for a good, not terribly expensive, reliable charger that i will convert to A/C. I'm new to the hobby and could use some good guidance or at least a point in the right direction, slight time crunch. Thanks!

Bonjour , j'ai une batterie LIPO TURNIGY 3S 5000mah, et je voulais savoir si le chargeur convenait ? Car sur la photo , on vois afficher " LIPO " , mais pas dans les caraté*ristiques techniques , donc je voulais en ê*tre sur . Par avance merci

Salut Filou, oui le chargeur convient parfaitement pour une batterie Li-Po, meme si la doc technique n'est pas claire. Tu peux aussi charger du Li-Ion ou Li-Fe avec, en modifiant le reglage de mode Lithium.

I am between to buy this charger or the b6. I have read some comments and some people are not happy with this. Is there anyone who can help me?
 Miguel FP 1302 points
What are your needs? Both B6's, with or without power supply incorporated are 50 watts, this one is 150 watts, to avoid overheating and for the best performance of charger is recommended that when charging you stay below max circuit power. So what type of batteries will you charge? Use the watt formula, watt=ampXvolts, to decide what charger you need. If you are going to charge a 4S 5000 mah (73,5 Watts), you need this one, but if you are going to load a 3S 2200 mah (24,4 Watts), the B6 will go fine.

For now i want it for 3s 2200 11.1 V but if i go on B6 that means that is the maximum i can charge.? Also i heard some people saying that B8Plus has some problems with the buttons.
 Miguel FP 1302 points
With B6 you can charge other batteries, that was just an example, only have to check that the power you are pulling out the charger is below 50 Watts. In modern world products are made in mass, they have some quality controls but there always will be a faulty item. Some times there is a defect of design, that manufactures try to debug the sooner as posible. I think this is not the case of this item, may be there is a defective unit that have been sold, but the reviews of costumers don't make emphasis in that.

This can charge two cells, just trim off the half arrow on the left top of the battery plug, insert it in the 3S charger connector, program the charger to 2S, and go. This charger seems to be limited to 25 watts discharge, so for a 6S LiPo you can only discharge at about one amp! Be careful using other brand adapters, they may be wired in reverse. The discharge of LiPo batteries is controlled by the total voltage, NOT the individual cell voltages - discharging may drain one of the cells in a LiPo pack to substantially below 3.0 volts even if the pack has been balanced first. This charger does the charging through the heavy duty battery connectors, which is good since balancing connectors are only rated for 3 amps.

Nice piece of work. At first i thought it was a nice piece of S$pcnt& instead but after dismantling it an insulating the iron bar holding the cooling fin it worked just great.
If u decide to buy one of these and get the error message of too high temperature then the iron bar needs the same treatment.
I'm more than happy with this charger now.

I bought one of these six months ago and have found it to do everything I want and more. It balances on normal charge usually to within .01 of a volt. If the charge cycle is used, widely out-of-balance cells can be brought back into line.
My only complaint is one of the switch buttons makes poor contact occasionally.
I recommend it!

I bought two of them and tested it for many days.
It is a very cheap charger which many features.
You can easy use it with an standard USB-cable at the computer with Logview and watch the graph while charging or discharging.

The only thing what is not so good, is that the chargers internal measurement is not the best. So some 3cell lipos where at the end of balance charge at 12,62V (4,19V 4,22V 4,21V) and not at 12,6V how it promises.
But this is in the specifications of the batteries so, i think is will not be a big problem. I solved this buy balancing the lipos after charge with the HC Smart Balancer. So the cells have the same level as i should be.

So it will get only 4 Stars because of the balancing inaccuracy.

Surpris par un message d'erreur au bout de 4 secondes (surchauffe de l'appareil). J'ai trouvé à cette adresse la solution

Après cette petite modification il fonctionne parfaitement.
Bon chargeur
