BE VERY CAREFUL THAT YOU SET THE VOLTAGE CORRECTLY. USA CUSTOMERS, SELECT 110V ON THE BACKSIDE OF THE POWER SUPPLY UNIT!
just got mine. im in the uk so 240v. checked the rear switch it was set to 220v. plugged my acuccell 6 in and it blow up. yes it was connected the right way round. tried another charger which is rated 12-18v got error message saying voltage error. checked out put and it running at 20v.
anyone else had any problems like this?
This power supply cannot provide enough power for your charger (if you intend to use the charger all out to 20A on both channels). You need at least a 1000W supply to have some margin (you cannot calculate on 100% efficiency either, so an 800W supply would still be too small). I would use this one:9052000002, seems to be good according to the reviews (haven't got one myself). Don't count on upgrades or refunds, it's such a hassle (and expensive) to pack up and send back stuff. HTH
Warning for this powersupply !! It has worked fine for some month but suddenly it smokes. I open it and i have NEVER seen a more ugly solder work it was a mess ! I would NEVER use this in my house .... This is not a Ce markt product that you can or will use in Europe.
Yesyes, of course,i didnt mean you where stupid, more like it's stupid. Like its a waste of money if you dont need that powerful psu. I didnt mean to sound mad :-D
But its also great to buy a powerful psu so you dont need to buy a new if you want a more powerful charger than the accucel 6 in the future *-)
Unfortunately opening the case and looking at the fan won't work. I opened mine up the the label on the fan was torn off... But it would definitely be a 12v fan. You may just have to pull it out and match the size of it to a new one.
also if it has never worked from day one ... open the case and switch the plug around. be sure to work out which way the fan is flowing before reinstalling. preferable air should be getting sucked out of any power supply unit to allow good air flow
Absolutely YES ... of course you will need a Lipo Charger to go with it and I would suggest a parallel board to match your battery terminal type if you are planning on doing more than one battery charging at once.... saves you lots and lots of boring time doing the same job over and over.
make sure you actually test the voltage coming out under load. and with a good voltage tester. Just a display voltage may be out 1 volt or so. I found this with one of the HK voltage/Amp power testing led boards. was out 1 volt (to high and 1 amp to high also.
Put a battery on the charger, hook up your Power Supply and monitor the voltage coming out of the Power supply unit. I am sure you will be fine.
When the fan blows the air in to the PS it is easier to direct the flow to the hottest components. Better cooling then when the air is sucked out! So no, it is not an assembly issue! (* comment kiwi_fulla)
hi there, well if you feel the back of your computer and feel the PSU there. you will notice the air is being sucked out. This is to remove hot air, not to blow it on the components. As you move heated air away ... natural law of effects allows cooler air to fill that space :)
Hmmm.... well i do not have this product but there is always a few tings to check :D Fuse, blown capsitor(oozing little silver cylinder), scorched resistors but it could also be a blown transformer and then you are in the mud unless you just open it up and make sure everything is connected correctly :D
I have this PS and an iCharger 306B* however it worked ok the first time I plugged it in, the second time I plugged it in the charger turned off and on a few times and now it does not work at all :/ The charger still works on my truck battery just not on this PS. Should I open it up and take a look inside?
When I wanted to charge the second lipo it explodes!! I use the Turnigy Accucel-8 150W! What a bad quality ,immediately afterwards tested my Accucel-8 on car battery. The Accucel-8 is luckily not broken. What a nightmare!!!
I have coupled this power supply with the Turnigy 4x6S charger. But the charger doesn't accept the voltage, since it is too high. The output voltage of the power supply (at no load) is 21V!
Is the power supply faulty or what should I do?
The item description makes one think this has been tested and should work together with other HK chargers.
The operating voltage range of your charger is 11~15V DC. I think it will not work, because the Charger will check the incomming voltage first before start up. If it is to high or to low normaly the device will not work.
you can charge only 1 6s at 5.0 Ampere but don't charge more than one 6s at the same time, or your turnigy charger will damage, because according manual, max charge capacity is 6 ampere.
in my experience more than 6 ampere charging, the turnigy charger is rather hot..
It does not have a voltage readout. There is plenty of room inside the case to add one if you know what you are doing though. I am thinking about making this mod myself. The only indicators on the unit as it comes is a neon lamp inside the power switch which glows when turned on. There is a "power good" LED mounted on the PCB inside the case but it isn't visible from the front of the unit. You can see it if you look through the ventilation slots on the left side.
hello, yes mine came with an international power cord as well. I live in canada. try there online support, although they were not very helpful they did say that they would email me with a response. we will see.
The plug is a typical kettle cord. Get a replacement from electronics store for about $5 or take an old one from an appliance you don't use like an old computer/kettle and etc.
Very good power supply, fully justifies the claimed capacity. Quality at a height, plus a constant cooling.

Been using mine for a while now, works great! I charge multiple batteries at a time. I turn it on before I connect the batteries. A friend told me to do this, I have earthly reason why, just do. I recommend it if you need some amps to charge with.

Very nice power supply. Charged using my Hyperion 720 DUO 3 with two TP 6S 5000mah at a time with 2C of charge each (more than 20A). It handled very nice but it's the maximum rate you can charge, otherwise the power supply shut off (maximum of 420W of power, not 600W). But for me its enought charge two batteries at a time at 2C. I'm very happy with it and recommend. It worth the cheaper price compared with its benefits. The fan is noisy and i'm planning to change it for another one more silent. See my video, Thanks.
This is a good power-supply. As always with HK good value for the money.

I have 2 of these power supplies.
Number 1, connected to 2 x 200watt chargers. After 5 mins went bang, lots of black smoke. Still works on lower current now - obviously blown out at least one MOSFET.
Number 2, connected to 1 x 200watt charger, Worked for 3 lots of charging then when I came back it to it was dead. The light was on but no voltage out.
