does this charger charge up this type of battery: 7.4v (2 cell) 1800mAH Lipo

Yes, it does. Regards!

What EXACTLY do I need to charge my batteries that have a xt60 discharge plug and a jst-xh balance plug? I know I need a power supply. What connectors does this charger come with? Do I need to buy any additional connectors to charge my batteries? Also does this come factory calibrated or do I need to calibrate it myself? Sorry I know this is a lot of questions I am still pretty new to this. Thank for the help. :)
 EstebanT 857 points
You need an adapter like PRODUCT ID: 258000093-0 because this charger does not include XT60 connectors. It has Deans-T. Calibration is made in factory so you do not have to worry about that. If all your batteries fit XT60 connectors, you may also consider getting the Accucel-6 chargers series, which are XT60 compatible. Hope this answer helps you. Regards!

Could anyone with this charger tell me what is the adjustment range of the "low input power" setting on this charger? I want to run it off of 18V makita batteries so I would like to be able to set the cutoff voltage to about 13V to protect the battery. I currently have the knockoff version of this charger but as far as I can tell I can only adjust it between 10-11V.

If not, any suggestions on a cheap charger that can do this?
Kevin  1 points - 6/26/2015
Just in case other people do the same thing I did. The description says this is compatible with Zippy batteries, which no doubt it is. I bought two of these for my new Basher BZ-888 buggy,
The charger DOES NOT come with the correct cable to connect from the charger output ports to the battery. Something like this is what I got my local hobby shop to make up.
make sure you get the AC Adaptor as it says, it doesn't come with one.

You can also order (or buy yourself) PRODUCT ID: 601A-XTTB.

Sory, build yourself...

I have a 18.5V 3.5A adaptor. Is it possible to connect 18.5V 3.5A adaptor to IMAX b6?
 Angerand Philippe 8 points
Yes, but you have to add one silicium diode 5A or , 60v to 100v to drop down the 18,5v to 17.9 v from 18,5v adaptor **>|** to charger positive input Regards,

Very good charger with only one problem: balancer is not accurate. Have found the problem ( 1 percent resistors used instead of 0.1 percent resistors). I am in contact with SkyRC about a possible improvement in the design.

But as said, besides the balancer incaccuracy this is a great product!

very good charger for the price, charges everything, has safety features. I 've found the reported problem of balancing lipos not too serious. I have measured differences of 0,04 to 0,05 volts (4,2 to 4,25). It is still annoying especially as the voltage exceeds 4,2. Overall I would recommend it as a first do-it-all charger

Good charger, but the balancer does not work very exactly. Overall worth the money.

I got mine about 2 weeks ago. Charges all my NiMh and LiPo's without a hitch. Very good balancer.

The discharge rate is quite slow - but sufficient. Who really needs to discharge at high rates?

Only drawback it has is that it doesn't come with it's own AC adapter. You can either connect it to your car battery or buy a power supply for it (which might not be cheap, remember we need 5AMPs at 12V!).

In any way - spend the few extra bucks and get a REGULATED adapter - it's a shame to burn out this charger.

If it came with it's own power supply I would give it 5 stars with no hesitations.

A pesar de no ser extremadamente exacto funciona muy bien. Mucho mejor que el b5 porque descarga y acepta A123.
Experiencia con LiPO 3S y 4S perfecta
