I bought this charger about month ago. There was no problem with charging, but after few cycles of discharging with full power discharging function was failed. Of course there is no economical sense to send it back to HK so I opened the case and found burned current measuring wire and burned POWER MOSFET and most important what I found was ******** qu***ty heatsink section. Constantly overheated mosfets and here is the result. Lost almost 100 euro (charger power supply taxes). I was able to replace POWER MOSFET by myself but steel measuring wire is not easy to replace. After all my charger is again working but how long this time or maybe HK send me a new one which I doubt.

Does this model has a mini USB on it or not? I've seen some clips on youtube where show that has, what this is all about, is there or not, why hobbyking no image of this product on the side that we know what we buy?

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.

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 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.
