Does anyone know if it it possible to change the presets from dual to single charging? I want to change all of them to a different order, but don't seem to be able to get an option for dual or single.
I notice that the software is a cut down version of the Cellpro software. I tried running the the xs software, but it doesn't recognize the charger unfortunately.
If you look under the the price tab you will see a little Box,which says Acc (Accessories)and HK list a couple of power supplies (PSU) in there,i used a Turnigy 1080W 220~240V Power Supply (13.8V~18V - 60amp)which is a nice bit of kit and it has never let me down,even when i'm running a couple of chargers at the same time down at the flying field,here is the PRODUCT ID: 9052000002 but this one is for the UK/Europe,so if you are in the US you might want to look for the USA version which has a different input voltage.
does anybody know if you are charging one battery can you get 400 watts or just 200 watts a side? be nice if you were charging 1 battery you could get 400watts then switch to 2 battery's it switch's to 200watts a side.
What do I need in order to charge turnigy traxxas 1/16 batts? (havent decided on the 2s 2200mah or 3s 1400mah any suggestions)I know I will need a PSU, and a parallel adapter to run batts in parallel, but other than that what sort of other connectors and adapters will I need? Thnx
Lile 99% of good charges, this one does NOT include a power supply. You have to buy separate power supply with suitable power.
You will never find a charger with integrated power supply, because a 400W power supply is 2-3 times bigger then this charger :)
Guys!!! Watts = Volts x Amps so 30v x 10a = 300w so how come this is a 400watt charger when max input voltage is 32v. and also how is Cellpro xp 600watts when 30v x 15a =450w and this is without efficiency losses
You count this very wrong :)
Power=Volts*Amps - this is correct. But you should input the voltage, that would go to the battery. Max voltage for LiPo is 4.2V per cell. So 42V for 10 cells. And the max current for this charger is 10Amps. 42*10 = 420Watts. But, as per spec, this charger is limited by 400Watts max charge power. This is quite normal, it means, that total power for both channels will not go over 400Watts. For example, you can charge 2x 4S 5000mAh batteries with 5 Amps each. This will result in 4cells*4.2volts*5amps*2channels=168 total Watts of power, still plenty of resource.
Looking at specs, this charger is very good and powerful.
guys....just so you know....This is not exactly the same as a 10s as you cant use the REVO software....BUT, and I conformed this with REVO USA...It is the same basic design, and it is made by LEO industries, the MFG of REVO products..
Looks like it could but you might be be better off going over to the Hobbyking forums and asking there,if not try a google search and see what that comes up with,if i had to buy another charger this one would be a right at the top of my list,hope this helps a little.
i supposed you are right. i hope someone opened their's and see what the inside looks like.
wondering why the missing feature and reduced power? it is also saying firmware upgradable but from whom? who will maintain turnigy firmware?
It´*s not a clone. Clones are counterfeit products. For this and the relabeled Powerlabs exist agreements between Revo and HK and the chargers are from the same original manufacturer. The 10XC is not a relabeled Cellpro 10XP but an "older" 10S. You can find this info on rcgroups.
Is it safe to use a plug blocker to perform a 1 & 2 pack charge with just the Balance pigtail ?
(Watch the video of the original Cellpro 10S showing how to perform a 1 & 2 pack charge with just the Balance pigtail)
What connector is on the connection board that plugs into the charger? I want to wire up some extensions to use with 5S batteries with JST-XH balance connectors, so I don't have to deal with the bulky connection boards.
Don't quote me on this but i think you will find they are made by revolectrix,and that they are there own brand so you could go check them out and see if that helps,i would post a link but we are not allowed sorry,if not why not just buy the ons above and use the plug off them,yeah i know thats not what you want to hear,good luck in your search vanputte and i hope this is of some help mate.
By purchasing some of both, I have confirmed that the balance connector that plugs into the charger is NOT Thunder Power or Kokam. You're probably right that they are proprietary Revolectrix connectors and I think that's a cheap shot by them. Trying to force purchasers of their chargers to use their balance boards is ridiculous. I cut the extra connectors off the unused JST-EH side of the JST-XH/JST-EH balance board and spliced them into female 5S JST-XH connectors. It took me almost two hours to do four sets, but it was worth it.
Just hooked a 6s Zippy LiPo to 10XC JST-EH/JST-XH Balance Adaptor Board. Chose preset 1 and got "Ch1 Bad S. Count" with Node wiring set to XH. (Same result after trying Default wiring…*)
What have I missed?
Not enough info mate,are you charging with both the balance lead as well as the discharge wires?or just the balance leads? try looking at the manual again as it can be a bit confusing at first,once you know what your doing and used it a couple of times it gets easier.oh you can find the manual in the files tab above us,hope this was some what helpful.
Ok Joachim i was only trying to help out mate,still i hope you soon get it sorted with HK as there CS has come on loads just lately,you know you can award credit to the best answer my friend,i know it's only a small amount but HK puts the credit into our accounts,it all adds up at the end of the day,plus i'll return the favor when i can.
Greetings. Can someome tell me if this unit comes with the 2x banana jack leads that i will need to connect my battery packs to the charger? If not which ones are the right ones to get for the 10XC. Regards
I realy don't understand why if this is a rebadged Cellpro 10XP it's only stated as putting out 400 watts when the genuine one puts out 600 watts. I've taken the risk and bought one anyway but I'd feel a whole lot more confident if I could understand why the difference if they are the same unit under the cover????
Well spotted SD i never even noticed that mate,i got the cell pro 10s off of HK the week before they brought this one out,just my luck. I've been more than happy with it though,but having seen HK have brought this one out i nearly thought i might as well get this one too,then i though i wonder if HK will bring out something like the power labs 6 or 8,so i'm holding off for a while to see if they do or not.Still let us know how you get on with this the Turnigy 10XC because i really rate what you have to say Sawdust,you seem to know more than most when it come to RC and HK goodies like this.
SD maybe thats why HK took there 10XC off the website for a few days,so they could amend the 400W in stead of the 600W like the other well known one,who knows maybe HK Admin will come on here and tell us tomorrow or when ever.
You might be right about the Powerlab tazz. I just noticed these in the new items. PRODUCT ID: 214000003 and PRODUCT ID: 214000002 both to suit the Power lab 8. Oh dear, I knew I should have waited. BTW: I'm not that cluey with rc, but I do love my HK toys
Again well spotted on the product items for the powerlabs 6 and 8 SD,yeah i can do with all the credit i can get mate because the Mrs would stop my monthly allowance for HK if she could. Thanks for the credit SD as you know it's very much appreciated mate.
The Note at the bottom of the product page says, "Two adapter boards for your brand of battery will be required for 10s charging." I don't understand why. The balance boards each have plug ins for two 5S battery packs and two separate inputs to the charger.
After looking more closely at the picture of the adapter boards, I see that they are different. However, I wonder if is possible to split the adapter boards in half, down the middle, to get rid of the unneeded/unused adapter.
It's not rocket science or brain surgery, so I will remove the backing and examine the circuitry. If it doesn't require major rewiring, I'll do it. The extra, unused pigtail and too large board is a nuisance.
LOL,it might not be rocket science but you didn't know if you could do it or not so i was only try to help you out,oh by the way you would need BOTH sets of wires to charge the bigger lipos up so if you don't need to charge 6s or higher get rid of the unused pig tail,good luck as it sounds as though you might need it.
You can mate but you will need the one of these with the plug that your battery uses,PRODUCT ID: CB6-6S I've got the cellpro 10s and it charges two 6s batteries with one of these connected. If you can't work it out just post another question at the top and i'll try and answer it for you,if not someone else will.
have this very same charger but under a different name and if you have a good enough PSU (power supply unit) it will charger two 6s lipos without any problems,but remember if you buy this you will also need the two of the balance board shown under the charger,remember to make sure you get the ones for you type of balance lead,i hope this is the info you need and it was helpful,if so could you help me out and award credit please.
the balancer board has TWO plugs.
you need two boards, plugged in with one of each cable to charge 2x [1-5] Cells
and you need to plug both cables of one charger board into the charger to charge 1x 6-7 S
So you can NOT charge 2x6S, unless you wire them parallel.
have fun, its one of the best charger.
does it really have NIMH Modes?
you can charge every parallel connected array if the charger have the Cell Count to charge one of it. but be aware only to charge batteries in the same voltage. differential voltage can kill your battery. all packs empty is no problem. one full and one empty is a shootout for at least one or even both batteries.
In all cases I am glad that HK decided to rebrand one of the best charges on the market as Turnigy, however this will require the proper support. Such an advanced piece of hardware cannot be sold and left for the customer, especially the newbies, to guess how to program, operate and update it...
I tried to update with the Cell 10XP firmware with no success.
The software updater are different, as the firmware versions too.
The cellpro 10XP updater didn't recognice de Turnigy 10XC.
Maybe it's possible, but first, a hack could be neccesary, and then update.
This charger is similar to both the 10s and the 10xp. But I was very dissapointed to learn, (after I bought it) that it has NO auto 1c, 2c, 3c, charge rate. You set it on 1-10 amps and that is what it does. no auto charge. Other wise, it seems to be a good charger.

Other stores will force you to ship the product back to China in full retail packaging every time! Hobbyking's warranty service is professional, fair and fast. Where has my review gone?

Review repost (2 part). Quality out the box: seems very good, nice screen and easy to read. Menu options easy to understand and navigate with a lot of nice features. There are rumors that this is a rebranded cellpro XP, i believe it, although detuned to only deliver 10A max, not 15A. Paired with: Two jst-xh balance boards and a 540w 18v hobbyking Power supply. (NOTE: does not come with discharge leads). Problems: Initially had a problem "Ch1 bad S. Count" when trying to charge 2x 2S turnigy nanotech batteries on eboth channels using preset 1 or 2. Turns out after some investigation and with help from HK support, the balance boards convert the jst-XH wiring to the default node automatically, so if you are trying to charge jst-xh plugs using the turnigy, you must NOT set your charger wiring node to XH- KEEP IT IN DEFAULT (even though the manual says jst-xh should use XH wiring node). Also check that all the balance plugs wires are in properly, I got a "Ch2 Bad S. count" due to one not being seated properly while trying to discharge.

Operation: After problems were resolved, it performed great, charging both turnigy 2S 5800mah nanotech in a very short time at 10A (input voltage at this time was 17.7v according to charger), after balance all sells @ 4.20v. I did a storage cycle after this and and it took rather long since it only discharges for starage at 1A! anyway, after storage cycle complete all sells were at 7.79v. After charging: Power supply and charger slightly warmer then room temperature, they operate quietly with the fans only engaging every now and again. Batteries where cold to the touch. after both charge and storage (discharge) cycles. Conclusion: Highly recommended. This is a great charger and I think it offers good value. Make sure you understand the manual (same as xellpro 10XP )before operation.
