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.

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.

Could I use a regular 12v 6a DC power brick? Like this: *******************/itm/12V-6A-72W-AC-to-DC-Adapter-

 anikeev 1548 points
Yes, it's output is well for this charger.

If the voltage is limited at 12V it would work fine.

In June 2010 I ordered this charger from HK and used it for about a year... I have taken a break from flying. The device was stored in a closed box and protected from the elements. Now I wish to return. I tried to check my packs and they all indicate 3.69-3.74V per cell. I tried connecting them to the Accucel 6 and only receive 'Connection Break' indication. This happens with the packs I flew with and also with several brand new LiPo packs I have. I obviously cannot charge/balance/cycle any pack with such indication. I tried going to a friend and trying his slightly newer Accucel 6, with my charging cord (it has a Deans T connector - as do my LiPo packs), and I got completely normal indications with all the packs I tried. This suggests the 'Connection Break' indication is an internal fault in my device, since all other items worked with the newer unit. I have isolated the problem component* and it is the Accucel. I don't expect HobbyKing to offer warranty after over six years... Did anyone else encounter such a malfunction? Dar Zeelon

You can disassemble accucel charger and try to find visual problem. Prime suspects: lost contact on main out or balance connectors, fatty capacitors (looks bulgy on it's top) should be replaced. Hope that helps.

Hi, Is it possible to upgrade the Firmware of this charger to enable it to charge LiHV Batteries?
 Jernej 4 points
No, but take a look at "Turnigy Accucel-6 80W 10A charger". It`s also more powerfull (80W compared to 60W).

Hi! Can i charge with this charger the Turnigy nano-tech 2100mAh 3S1P 20~40C LiFePo4 Transmitter Pack (EU Warehouse) ? It´*s LiFePo4 . The menu charger only says Lipo... Thks
 anikeev 1548 points
This charger can be used with LiFe. Just go to User Set Program, then to LiXX V Type, and select proper voltage: LiFe(3.3V),Lilo(3.6V) or LiPo(3.7V). After that Menu charger will say different Li-type.

Hello ALvega! Please, click on the "FILES" tab above and find file "How to LiPo-LiFe-LiIo setup" (or "LiPo-LiFe-LiIo-setup(Spanish)" if you prefer) for instructions on how to shift from one battery type to another. Hope this helps you. Regards!

my discharge voltage setting for LiPo 2S is set to 6.0V - this means deep discharge. How can i change this value?
 anikeev 1548 points
Check user manual in FILES tab - you can get detailed instructions there for every menu setting.
 Florian 6 points
tried to do so, but there is no option to change the setting. (cell V is set to 3.7V. )
 anikeev 1548 points
You mean when you select 3S it shows 11.1V, but when you choose 2s it shows 6.0V? Thats strange.
 Mirco 1 points
I own this charger and the discharge voltages for 4S LiPo is also way too low. It´*s 12.0V so 3V each cell. I didn´*t payd much attention to it until a friend mentioned it. Now I probably just damaged my two new LiPos right from the start. What´*s the idea? I don´*t get it?

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. 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

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 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: 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.
