Hello, anybody know how to repair a discharge failure ? My charger overheated itself and few mosfets burnt together with the discharge wires. I have checked and replaced bad mosfets but I have no idea what was the wires resistance. If I changed them by the copper one with the same width it shuts down when discharging. Thanks for hints.
 Christ 823 points
hello ftelf this wire is also acting as a measure shunt. so if the value is too small, then the measured current should be too high to work. try with a very small resistance like 0.1 ohm or 0.22 ohms or a needle pin thi is iron and resistance is a lot higher. good luck

I bought it years ago and takes thousands of loads, it acts as the first day !!! To charge the 2s lipos, I installed the connector balanced lipo 3s and 3s port connected to the works wonders !!!

Hi, I recently bought a couple of "Turnigy nano-tech Ultimate 6600mah 2S2P 90C Hardcase Lipo Pack (ROAR & BRCA Approved)" for my Basher 1/8 RC car.... that need to be charged... I already had the accurel 8150, but wonder how to balance these 2S battery packs... there is no 2S balance port on the charger.. any suggestions? thanks, Adriano
 Christ 823 points
hello Adriano there are some modification you can do, however the simplest is just to insert the 2S balance connector to a 3 S input after cutting the small plastic extension on the top. The black connection is on the right side when you look at the ballance connector. Enjoy
 adriano 2 points
Thank you Christ, I already had made the same thought... I plugged the 2S into the 3S after cutting one of the 2 plastic "guides" on top of the connector....

Have to get another charger for 2S..
 Christ 823 points
hello Tuomas858 absolutely not. this charger cancharge 2S batteries, as explained here above. also what you can do is to buy a adapter for multiple batteries like JST-XH Balance Board for 2S to 6S Battery Packs . this one you plug into the charger and use it to connect your 2S batteries.around 3 dollars . a lot less than another charger. Happy new year

is the PSU, I noted some of the negative reviews but the unit checked out OK and seems to work OK.
Chris  6 points - 6/30/2015
 
Hi Christ, thanks for the prompt response. Yes the PSU is rated at 14.5 V, and this is close to what my Multimeter showed.
 Christ 823 points
hello Chris did you checked the connection between the main board and the screen? as the IN power seems good you should try there. not difficult to open. Try and let us know.
 Chris 6 points
Thanks for the suggestion Christ. I can't check until the middle of next week, but will let you know as soon as possible.
 Chris 6 points
Hi Christ, sorry for the delay in responding but all this has been on hold from other commitments. I have gotten back to it, and came across a thread on the Australian link to this unit. That person, Smack 41, had had similar problems Having stripped the unit some dry joints had been discovered. I successfully pulled the unit down and those 2 main solder points did look a little sus. I Re soldered them, and, on a test, without reassembling, I managed to get a proper display. So far so good. Next I'll obtain some of the heat paste and reassemble. Will let you know how that goes. Many thanks for your suggestions. If you look at the Australian link, Smacko41 has posted some good photos of the solder side of the board, and the component side.

I Bought this charger because i tested a friends one and im really happy with it!!!
Best Price, excelent accesories.
You can charge really a123 at 7 amps!!!! this is 18 minute charge on 6s1pa123 pack

First i tested the Balancer, it works fine. Holds each cell at exactly 4.2V during charge. I didnt expect it to be that accurate.
You can set the minimum input battery voltage between 10 and 11V so you wont run your car battery dry.

Second tested the output voltages with my FLUKE tester. In a fresh charged pack in BALANCE mode, the results was:

6s1p 4000mah lipo

4.20 4.20 4.20 4.20 4.20 4.20 CHARGER

4.201 4.199 4.200 4.203 4.201 4.210
FLUKE READS
So there is an excelent balancer too!!!!

Third the temperatures of the internal circuits, never raise over 40Cº in a 5amp discharge, it seems that the cooling design was good

PC conectivity needs drivers and you can download the manual too if you haven´t one

My overall opinion is that this unit works very well, enables accurate charging, comes with just about every connector you might need, In both quality and function it is comparable to units costing 2 to 3 times as much.] Several of my friends are currently considering purchase of these now because of the great overall value. I would purchase another one without reservation especially in light of the cost to performance ratio. Absolutely incredible. I will be making more purchases from Hobby City.

The only thing i recomend to improve in this

Great charger.
Used it for my LiFE batterys.
BUT... after a couple months I can no longer select the LiFE batteries in the menu... it has disappeared without reason!!!
I can do no software update because the usb connection didn't work.

Otherwise works as marketed but the voltages are off big time. plus-0.12 at worst and that really makes me wonder whether they calibrate these things at the factory at all. Also the "Energy" reading that the charger gives out when using the USB link is completely useless and no where near the realistic values. Hence 3 stars although due to not giving 5 stars this review is probably going to be deleted by the HobbyKing Gestapo in no time.

There has been some changes to this charger. Gone are the temperature probe and the USB port. Plan to return as these 2 features are not implemented and there are other cheaper charger like Turnigy MAX80W 7A would be a better choice.
