What do those light mean?
Pavel  1 points - 3/26/2015
 
I have this charger and also I have a 3s 2200mah battery. I am using power supply at 12V with 1.5A. The problem I have is that it chargers only the 2cells of the batter and never the third. I have to say i used the battery only 2 times and always i charged the battery with this charger. I am new in the RC stuff and this is my first charger and battery. I don't know if the problem is in the charger or in the battery. My question is: Is there a way to force the charger to work as 3s charger ?

i connect my battery to the 3s connector of the charger and I think the charger detects it as 2s battery by measuring the charger itself with a battery voltage meter like this one: www.link

How much amperes does this charger require?
 handyjap 648 points
It requires MORE than 800mA from the power supply. On 3S it draw up to 1.15A on 12V that is why my 12V 1A power supply did not last. I now use a 12V 2A power supply that I that I salvaged from an external computer hard drive. You can also browse Youtube on how to convert an old desktop PC power supply to give you 12V.

Hi, Green light indicates battery charged. In your case you need not to worry- just plug in the battery and allow it to charge. See that RED lights is on.

I haven't been able to fly my planes for a very long time because my family was in an economic crisis. I had nothing to do this christmas. I didn't get any gifts and i was sad because all this wonderful time was being wasted. Thanks to hobbycity they made my christmas a little more special. I had to sell my old charger for the money. I had no way of charging my lipos, i bought this charger and now i can go to the park and fly and do what i love.

The charger comes with no instructions, but a quick check shows that the RED led means the charger is connected to 12 volts, the GREEN led means the unit is charging and the charging is complete when the GREEN led goes out.

The charger seems to work just fine and the price is hard to beat.

It's just red led is power on..
Red led & green Led.. Power ON and charging..
Other indicators/audio??? None...
It seems to charge at regular rate of around 500 mA so nothing else is needed..
If your batteries are in good shape (and they should always be) this little sucker is SO CHEAP! and effective.
At this price and current draw you could use several at once..
For obvious reasons, limited to 2S & 3S.
Balancing is well within the performance of other much more expensive units..
Definitely a buy even if, like me, you are just curious..

I am using this charger for more than a year and I am very happy with it. Individual cell voltages are in the 4.15 to 4.17 volt range. For me this is good, the 3 led version(AC or DC) overcharge cells 4.21 to 4.24 volt.
I have no proof that can balance packs, but surely at abnormal voltage the green led blinks. The 3 led version can charge individual cell of the pack. Recently I made a connector and measured charging current 0.82Ah as advertised

This charger is great! Bought 2 of them and it was money well spent! Every cell is balanced within .05v and the charger and battery keep at room temp during charge. I also got lucky and found an old 12 power supply from an old video game that works great with it. You can't beat the price! I will get more in the future!
