Hi, I have currently an order with this item from international warehouse and I'd like to know the delay before it will be available? Thanks

HK staff do not answer here. This is users discussion. You can try to ask support (link on top right of the page) but doubt you will get answer earlier then your order will be shipped *) If item is in backorder... restock as for my experience is something likely monthly based... but nobody really knows..If Item is in stock it usually takes around 1-2-3 days to be shipped. (sometimes on weekends it takes a bit more)

hi namely battery recharging, make curves of charge and discharge the battery to compare ...
 v_max 3712 points
Not bad idea to have charge/balance/discharge logs... but unfortunately this model do not have this functionality.

hi sorry but read the manual "PC based analysis using USB communication(**) For technical expert, A8 offers PC based program can analyse the charac- teristic of the battery by USB port. It shows a graph of voltage, current, capacity and temperature curves. It also shows the individual voltage of each cell in the Lithium battery pack"

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.
