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, http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/__21000__ZI

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. http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/__47585__HX

Also,
make sure you get the AC Adaptor as it says, it doesn't come with one.

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
