Turnigy 4x6S can charge four batteries packs simultaneously! A quality designed charger with accurate balancing and a familiar, intuitive menu system. The Turnigy 4x6 is equipped with 4 high accuracy microprocessors to charge each battery individually. Its efficient cooling system ensures safe operation throughout the charge cycle. With the Turnigy 4x6 you are able to balance charge a lipoly pack on Port-1 while series charging a LiFePo4 or NiMH battery on Port-2. All ports work independently of each other, and can provide up to 100W charging power each.

Yes there are only two balance boards (and only one JXT) you will need to buy 3 more to suit your batterys. Dietmar has confused balance boards with balance ports. there are 4 ports but only 2 boars (one of each type so order 3 more of your type when you order)
Has anyone had luck getting the STORAGE charge mode to complete? Once in a rare while it will finish but 90% of the time it doesn't - and it hits the timer limit. STORAGE charge is preprogrammed to stop at 11.4V but the charger shows my total voltage to be stuck at 11.37V and it never gets larger than that - all the while it keeps pushing energy into the battery. Notice that I said it tops out at 11.37V when the target final voltage is 11.4V. If you round the 11.37V to 1 digit you're AT 11.4V and should be one! When I use the LiPo Battery meter function (built into the charger) it does show each cell around 3.80V to 3.81V so this seems to be totally a rounding error problem that could be easily fixed with a firmware upgrade but I get the feeling there's no way to upgrade the firmware in this thing. Interesting that the charger reports its at version 1.0 so you'd like to THINK it could be upgraded - even with some hotwire hacking so long as a firmware upgrade was available. Annoying.....
On most batteries it does finish in STO mode, but I have a few 2200mAh where it sometimes does not, so I just interrupt the storage charging when the other batteries are done. Yes, it's a bit annoying, but the advantage of charging 4 batteries at the time is compelling!
I use this charger since a few months. I have just had a problem with the charger number 3 : the display works normally, but I have no action on the 4 buttons : he is out of order !!! I´*m afraid the others are going to do thé* same... How can I do with the guarantee ? Thank you
If your having any problems with this charger and it's still under warranty,go to the top right of the page and click on the HK 24 hour Support Center,then explain to them whats going on and they should be able to help you out.
Hi, 3S Lipo can be charged abaut 8000mAh per chanel.
100W / (3 * 4.2V) = 8A = 8000mAh
100W is the power per chanel.
3 is the cell count.
4.2 is max voltage per cell.
8A or 8000mAh is the power per voltage and time.
You can charge any 1S-6S lithium battery with this charger. There is no limit like 8000mAh. 10A max or 100W max - these are the limits. On the other hand, Ruedi is right about the PSU - 540W is just fine if you want to use the charger at full potential.
thanks both Ruedi and LeszekJ that was a great help. if u dont mind writing something else, i have a plane it is electric and it used to spin freely when you were flying with no engine power at all. now it is not. it definantly sounds electrical because i have cleaned it an everything. any advice?
Yes HK would ship this to the UK Paul and they have charges like this one in the UK warehouse too,but not the same one,anyways the power supply (PSU)unit that i have is the Turnigy 1080W 220-240V (13.8v~18v - 60Amp) which is more than enough for this charger,PRODUCT ID: 9052000002,this has been working really well for my use and never had a problem with it,or you could go for the Turnigy 540W 220-240V (13.8v~18v - 30Amp)PRODUCT ID: T-30PS-220,which will also be just enough to power this charger.
Ruedi Thanks for the suggestion. I have now tried three different battery makes and even changed charger leads. With the charge leads switched ie: neg to pos the chager will not start ( automatic safety) and I still get the same error message:- "check main port" with all leads connected correctly.
Thanks for the replays . I have used three different power sources and a 12 volt battery. All connections were positive to positive and negative to negative using the cables from the charger.
The battery I was trying to charge was directly connected to a charging port. The data for the battery was loaded correctly and when I pressed the start button the error message appeared. I have checked and rechecked all connection and always get the same error message "check main port".
Unless the power leads are reversed I'm confused!
J'utilise ce chargeur depuis quelques mois.
Je viens juste d'avoir une panne sur le chargeur avec la sortie en bas à* droite :
L'affichage fonctionne normalement, mais je n'ai plus aucune commande sur les 4 boutons : donc il est inutilisable !!!
Je me demande si les autres vont faire pareil, chacun leur tour...
Comment faire marcher la garantie ? Merci
I just received one of these chargers in the mail. It's a great looking unit but when I connect all the ends togetherand start a charge I get an error message:-" connection error. Check main port". Has anyone seen this message and werte they able to find the correction.
Same for me exceot it has been like this since day one, port #3 works only now and then, I have even traced the problem down to the flat cable from the button panel, they have not installed the connectors at the end of it correctly on that port. And there is no way to get a new button panel from hobbyking it seems (or parts for the charger at all actually)
First impression after unpacking: Look very nice, quality seems to be okay, colored buttons are very bright, CE mark on the bottom. There was no manual in the box, but a piece of paper with a warning that you should operate the charger at 15-18 V for the use full power and a promotion for the HK 540W power supply. The missing manual was no problem for me. Everyone who has used a Imax B6 or similar charger will find the menus in a second. Time to power on: Very bright displays with a good contrast shone on me. First I tried the storage function for 4 Lipos at the same time. The beeps from the buttons sounds very smart. Not as loud and intrusive like from the B6. The button are a little too soft in my opinion, but that's okay. The Fan turned on after a few minutes discharging. It is temperature controlled and not very calm. After finishing I found a menu point BATT METER. There you can check the voltage of the connected batteries. You can see the voltage of each cell of the Lipo and after pressing plus or - you can see the max and min with 3 decimal digits. Cool and useful tool. And the batteries have been charged nearly perfect to 3,8 V each cell. My Cell-log told me average 2mV difference. Well done HK! Time to charge: I have connected 4 Lipos with 2.200mah (Turnigy 20C) and charged them at 2,2A. After finishing the voltage was nearly perfect at each Lipo. The max difference I had was my oldest Lipo with 21 mV. the best with 4 mV. Great! Before I had a KDS B6 charger, and I

first it is on, 2.2 amh,and 7.4volt, after that trying to chare my 6cell battery, i changed mode to 4.4amh, and 22.2volts, after that , turn off the charger and on, it goes to 2.2 amh, and 7,4volts, so i have to change the mode to 4.4amh, 22.2volts,
i use only my 6cells batteries, but i have to change the mode to 6cell charging every time, what a mass?....is there anyway to remember the earlier charging mode?

Can you calibrate this charger??
When charging/balancing lipos they seem to end balancing at about 8.25v and not 8.4v. The cells are never fully balanced either, i.e. 4.15 & 4.19.
Any help please.
