Just received this charger and it doesen*t work . After reading the manual and plugging everything in. I trying to charge a 2200ma 3S. All the charger says is "connection break". Both ports say this ?????
I may have to exchange it
You scared me when I read this and almost didn't buy it. I had the same error code on my screen too. Thats when I realized I was trying to charge nothing (on output 1) when I thought I was on output 2.
Not to mention you need to pay attention if you tell it to charge a 4 cell when you only have 2 cell, it wont go into charge mode (built in safety)
I got one of these last week. When I balance charge, it finishes before the cells reach 4.20. at the end of the charge they will ready 2.18 or 2.19. I am concerned that it is not charging my batteries all the way. any input?
I used a buddies battery checker today and right off the charger my batteries are at 98%. when I put them on his charger it the tops them off to 100% is there a fix to this or do I need to send it back?
This charger is awesome! The charger was not availble in the USA warehouse when I wanted one so mine came from china. I was alittle nervous for paying $100 for a charger with no reviews. I have used the charger for over 3 months now and I dont know how I survived without it. I fly a DF jet so I go threw lipos quick. Its nice to have 400 watts/10amps of charging power on the tap. For example it will charge TWO 6000mah 2 cell packs(For my Traxxas Slash) in around 30 minutes when it took my other charger well over an hour for ONE pack! The charger has two charging ports so you can keep up with your battery demands. I was orignally going to get the HobbyKing 4 port charger where you can charge 4 different packs but it only has 200 watts of power and for me I use mostly larger mah packs so this 400watt charger was a must... Hope this helps you guys in picking a charger...
Thanks Hobbyking for your great support!

I just got this charger Jan 6th, 2012, to replace an Accucel-8 150 that died (one too many drops while on made the LED hard to read, but it still works), and I couldn't be happier. There is no learning curve because the button layout is identical to the 8150, just an extra button to switch between the 2 charging ports, and the balance port is all-in-one instead of one for each number of cells per battery. I had trouble getting a few of about a dozen balance plugs into the port over the weekend, but I think it was the plug's fault, since most went in easily. I thought the 8150 was an outstanding charger but this one will put 3000mah x2 into 2 3S 5000mah Turnigy 40C packs in about 20 minutes!! the drawback to charging both at 10A is the fan sounds like an EDF and is fairly loud, so you can adjust charge rate to quiet it down if it bothers anyone...I found that dropping to 5A each made it as quiet as a laptop fan.

cut the left side air intake hole back to near the fan screw holes so just a big round hole the size of the fan cuts the noise right down. now its a 5 star charger.
This charger is incredible. It has all the features you could ask for and with the right adapter you can charge any battery you own!

4 nylon spacers installed along with longer screws inside the unit between housing and left side fan will stop the fan noise. Use appropriate length spacers so the fan doesn't touch the heatsink. The openings in the case itself are causing the loud howling effect. Disconnecting the left fan will raise internal temperature when using number one port, not recommended. Make sure air flow is coming in with left fan and going out with right fan.
