Turnigy Accucel-6 50W 6A Balancer/Charger w/ Accessories

Turnigy Accucel-6 50W 6A Balancer/Charger w/ Accessories

The Turnigy Accucel 6 Balance Charger utilises quality FET's and resistors to accurately balance and charge LiPoly and NiMH batteries.
The Accucel-6 will handle LiPoly/LiFe up to 6S and NiMH/NiCd up to 15S and shows individual cell voltage during charge with realtime updates throughout the charge cycle.
The intuitive menu system means charging and cycling is an easy process and can be done quickly and accurately either at the field by using a 12v input such as a car battery or at home with a 12v power supply.
Bundled with the Accucel-6 is a bunch of input and output wires which should satisfy any charging requirement.

ATTENTION.
There are several chargers now entering the China market that look similar to the Accucel. These chargers are produced with cheaper FET's and are unfortunately much less accurate and very unsafe. There has been reports of the copied chargers over-charging packs and not balancing correctly.
The Accucel-6 is the first charger in the market with this PCB layout Circuit design. Any charger with the same circuit diagram is most definitely a copy. We have tested the copied chargers ourselves, their componentry is of a very low quality and the manufacturing company that has produced the copy has used a process of duplicating our CPU(MCU)'s hex file and flashed a similar chip(MCU) to produce a similar product. This means they do not have the original code and therefore cannot bug-test(QC) or update the charger at any point.
Our chargers have CE and RoHS certification, proving their safety.
Plus, thousands of customers the world over have used our chargers with excellent results.
Your batteries are expensive. We understand this and thats why we will not carry low-quality charging devices.
Trust only in TURNIGY® quality charging devices.

Every time i try to charge with this charger and the same battery he demonstrates with the charge will start, work for two seconds then, the screen will turn off the Turnigy logo will appear. Is my charger broken?
 jackcohen 2 points
is a 12volt 1amp power supply not enough?
 Bernardo 2 points
It's a low current in the power supply. Even it's enough, the power supply will work in it's maximum capacity. Buy another power supply, like 12V 5A and you will never have problems again. Just for 10 dollars.

I have two 2200mah 3s lipos however the power supply I have for the charger is only rated at 12v at 1.5a. Is it ok that I charge my batteries with this charger at a setting for a 1.4 mah battery so that I don't go beyond the limits of my power supply
 EstebanT 314 points
Hello Jordan. I´*d say it will be very close to the limits and guess will not work. Just give it a try to see what happens! If doesn´*t work, the charger will go OFF or give an error message like "INPUT VOL ERROR". Please let us know what happened! Regards!
 Ioannis 1 points
Probably it will work, 12v X 1.5A = 18 Watts. But you will be very very close to the limit. The best power supply you can get is old PC power supply, with an easy hack you can find everywhere on the internet, and will have all the power you want...

Yes you can just keep the C under 6A
Vegard  72 points - 4/18/2014
 
Can i use a 12V 6A power supply to charge 3S with this charger?
 georgiev.s 402 points
Yes, you can do this. Better charge with max 1C. So if your battery is 4000mAh, charge with 4A.
 Dani Irwan 6 points
Yes, indeed you can. That means, in theory and assuming that your power supply is operating at peak effiiency of 100%, you can charge a 6000mAh battery at 6A. However, it's always better to be conservative and charge at a lower rate. 1C is safe enough.
 Vegard 72 points
So i dont need to buy a 15V power supply then? I read down below that you cant charge a 3S with 12V?
 georgiev.s 402 points
Yes, you dont need to buy a 15v power supply. The Charger itself accept 12V, but it can transform it to voltage needed to charge 3S, 4S and so on. If I or anyone here helped you, click best answer.

I've had it for several months but just tried to use it. Set it up according to the manual ,but when I hold start to begin charging it says" short err" . If I try with the discharge cables disconnected but the balance lead connected it says " cell voltage low" so I check manually with voltmeter, and all cell are within .05 of each other. This happens on all four batteries I tried. I got it to start once with a 4cell batt but the charge rate only went as high as 0.1amps then after 10 minutes or so, it said "voltage select err" . Anyone no what's wrong? Is the charger faulty?
 Arizonask8r 536 points
Make sure that if you are balancing that you have both the discharge plug connected as well as the balance leads plugged in. In any case the discharge cable must always be connected. Be sure you select the correct number of cells or use auto select. Also if you are charging a 3 cell lipo then your power supply for the charger needs to be at least a 13volt. If you are trying to charge at 3 amps then your power supply also needs to be able to put out 3 amps. if charging a 4s then your power supply needs to be at least 15-16 volts and so on.

Accucel-6 is a really nice product. The firmware of thie charger is exactly same as of any other 50W charger. It has a blue backlit which is easily readable in the sunlight or in dark.
Along with the cigarette lighter adapter, you can use this to charge your batteries while driving down to the field.
http://www.hobbyking.com www.link ANY SPACES IN THE ABOVE LINK)

The buttons are good and it has all metal body which is really good as compared to the Hobby King $18.99 charger.

This charger comes with a multiple charge lead connector which you can use with any kind of battery.

You can even calibrate the charger if you feel the readings are a little incorrect.

For calibrating this charger follow these steps:

1.) Power off the charger.
2.) Press and hold the (dec" and "start" buttons.
3.) Power on the charger. (you will hear 3 beeps in a row). Keep the buttons pressed.
4.) You will enter into the calibration screen where the voltage detected by the charger is displayed on the screen (voltage on output leads).
5.) Attach any battery to the output leads of the charger.
6.) Using a digital multimeter, correct the reading of the voltage by pressing "inc" or "dec" buttons till the reading matches with that of the multimeter.
7.) Press "Stop" when you are done.
8.) Your charger is calibrated now.

You can repeat these steps as many number of times

I'm very happy with this charger.
I tested with my cheap voltmeter the final volatge and it seemed lower than displayed by the charger.
So i tried to calibrate it :

Hold on "ENTER" and "-" button at while powering on the charger.
The charger display something like this :

plus00 VOL: x.xxV
SAVE(ENTER)

Then plug in a battery in the charging plug and you can see the voltage detected by the charger.
Now you can adjust it by pressing plus or -

I just have to find a good voltmeter because i don't trust my voltmeter more than the accucel !

I ordered 2 of these chargers from HobbyCity, as I wanted a simple, easy-to-use charger for my Li-Po batteries. I found the charger very user-friendly, even though no manual is supplied with it. However, I have found a link to the charger manual here which may be useful to www.link read it through, the Turnigy Accucel-6 has even more capability than I first believed just by pressing the buttons!! The balance functions work really well and much information can be obtained from the charger displays. This is a really impressive charger, all the more so given the price.

Thanks again HobbyCity for a great product!!

Bought one as support to my standard field charger (MPX LN5014). Some of the features I like (vs old charger):
plusbright display easily readable in the sun.
plusbalancer functionality with detailed voltage display of all cells.
plusfaster LIPO loading without the final "trickle charge"
plusstore discharge, memory etc.
plusnice set of connecting cables.
pluslow shipping weight.
-only visible drawback is the black housing, which will tend to get hotter in direct sunlight.

Nice charger, not so good discharger.

Good: 1) bright display easily readable
2) balancer functionality with detailed voltage display of all cells on one screen.
3) Memory for batteries
4) USB data collection
5) Many connecting cables.
6) Cheap to buy
7) Can be used with Twin pack charge lead to charge two 3s1p: www.link Good, easy to use menu

Bad: (reason for 4 stars)
1) Discharge function is only so so. With a 3s1p you can discharge at a maximum of .5a and with 6s1p just .2a so it can take all night just to discharge a pack.
2) Fan makes a lot of noise, this is probably due to the charge's small size they had to put a small fan that moves a lot of air to cool it down.
It is a budget charger with above budget performance, you don't need to discharge a lot of full packs get it.

Note to the review below, you need to plug in the power and balancing port at the same time to balance charge.
