Hi...does anybody know if this product has a warranty and how long does it last? Tnx!
 Jimbolina1 527 points
Not much of one. At this price though who needs one.

Thank you Jimbolina and V_Max for your input! Will the 8150 adjust to 4.35v end voltage? Some only go to 4.3 but that's ok too.
 v_max 3818 points
Nope...Just checked mine one settings... there are only 3 lipo presets (nonchangeable) for 3.3, 3.6 and 3.7v lipo types... with 3.7 selectced cutt-off is set to 4.2 per cell.... actually all you can is select one of lipo types to change cut-off threshold.. No direct threshold settings available...
 v_max 3818 points
... and max is 4.2 among this presets...

Suprawill. Look up how yo calibrate your turnigy 6150 on youtube. The process is the same for the 8150. This will allow you to set your end votages.

Thanks friends! I ended up getting the Reaktor 300. This 8150 would have been a cheaper route and very adequate for my charging needs but I'm looking ahead to future upgrades that warranted my change of heart. Have a good weekend!

Hi All, Will this charger or the Accucel 6 allow you to adjust the end voltage for lipos? I'm wondering if either one will be compatible for the high voltage bolt batteries. I know the Neutron chargers are capable but just wondered about the Accucel 6 & 8. Thanks

Hi Suprawill. Not sure about the smaller unit but the8150's end voltage can be adjusted.I have been useing three of these 8150 chargers for several years now and love em. Happy Landings.
 v_max 3818 points
Yes, end voltage is adjustable. default is 4.2 per cell.

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
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.
