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 have 4 and all the charger stop charging my Turnigy 3300mAh 2S 30C Lipo Pack when each cell at 3.74V. Everyone do have the same problem?

the charger only charges up to 800mah. I'm sorry but you have to get a charger and power supply that can supply at least 3300mah.

Florian is mistaken. It just means that it will take about 4 hours to charge your battery. 3200mAh/800ma. It is stopping because it times out. Restarting it should make it charge more. i.e. unplug the battery and plug it back in.

Thanks rayBR But it does not answer why the green light stays on for 3s and flashes for 2s. Customer service(?) wants me to send them back for investigation but the postage costs more than the cost of the items. I guess that is the price of bying from HK (no customer service).

Hallo chavender , I have two of them and both flashes for 2S and no charging!!!!!!

flashing means it's balancing and still means it's charging. don't worry it should stop flashing after a while but sometimes it takes a while.

this video explains well the operation

Does anybody know why the green light stays on when charging 3s but flashes when connecting 2s? I have two and they both do the same (from new). I am using a good known 12v dc supply. Thanks Bill

depending on who has used this charger, it's easy and also not too defect balances well. segundo quem já* usou esse carregador,ele da defeito facil demais e tambem nã*o balanceia bem.

flashing means it's balancing, not that it's faulty.

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!
