I have just received the imax B8 but am unsure how to connect the balance lead of my Turnigy 3S 2200mah lipos to the balance port of the charger. Pin-out of the charger is - and 1 to 8 .but I am unsure of the polarity of the battery balance lead. There is no connector indexing on the charger plug to avoid incorrect polarity hookup. I don't want a fire or internal short in either the battery or the charger. The included balance adapter does not fit the balance plug on my batteries. Please help.

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!

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
