Turnigy Accucel-6 50W 6A Balancer/Charger w/ Accessories

Turnigy Accucel-6 50W 6A Balancer/Charger w/ Accessories

The Turnigy Accucel 6 Balance Charger utilises quality FET's and resistors to accurately balance and charge LiPoly and NiMH batteries.
The Accucel-6 will handle LiPoly/LiFe up to 6S and NiMH/NiCd up to 15S and shows individual cell voltage during charge with realtime updates throughout the charge cycle.
The intuitive menu system means charging and cycling is an easy process and can be done quickly and accurately either at the field by using a 12v input such as a car battery or at home with a 12v power supply.
Bundled with the Accucel-6 is a bunch of input and output wires which should satisfy any charging requirement.

ATTENTION.
There are several chargers now entering the China market that look similar to the Accucel. These chargers are produced with cheaper FET's and are unfortunately much less accurate and very unsafe. There has been reports of the copied chargers over-charging packs and not balancing correctly.
The Accucel-6 is the first charger in the market with this PCB layout Circuit design. Any charger with the same circuit diagram is most definitely a copy. We have tested the copied chargers ourselves, their componentry is of a very low quality and the manufacturing company that has produced the copy has used a process of duplicating our CPU(MCU)'s hex file and flashed a similar chip(MCU) to produce a similar product. This means they do not have the original code and therefore cannot bug-test(QC) or update the charger at any point.
Our chargers have CE and RoHS certification, proving their safety.
Plus, thousands of customers the world over have used our chargers with excellent results.
Your batteries are expensive. We understand this and thats why we will not carry low-quality charging devices.
Trust only in TURNIGY® quality charging devices.

BE AWARE: This Turnigy 50W 6A balanced charger doesn't have ATMEGA32 chip thus you will not be able to do the voltage calibration or upload your own custom firmware onto it. Better buy the variant of SkyRC iMax B6 charger.

I did voltage calibration on this charger.
 Thinh 3 points
The one HK sent me didn't have ATMEGA32 chip. It had something like ATmega406 chip so there's no hope to serially communicate with it. That's the reason is to BEWARE. If you have PCB similar to this (photo attached) there's no hope to upgrade the firmware or do a voltage calibration. target=_blank>
 BuBu1 304 points
Please read the discussions below, there are at least two procedures to calibrate the voltages, one should work on yours. I personally never read anything about some serial communication required to do this...

Hello Spec for this charger says Input Voltage: 11~17v But I live in Nigeria and national grid electricity supply is 220 - 240v Any solution(s) pls
 EstebanT 771 points
WARNING: This charger can not be plugged to AC wall jack directly! You need a DC power supply, like PRODUCT ID: 9052000023-3 or similar. Other options: use a 12Vcar battery, or you can also use a CPU power supply. Best Regards!

Hi! How can I charge Turnigy Receiver Hump Pack 2/3A 1500mAh 6.0V NiMH High Power Series on this Accucel 6 charger? On NiMh Man Charger mode I need to set X.XX A. How can I set voltage (6.0v) and Amperes (1.5 A or 1500mAh). I think that I did something wrong because the battery discharge very fast... Thank you so much!
 James Wri 29 points
Follow these steps: 1. Press "type" then repress until you reach nimh mode, press select. Then use the pluss minus keys to select charge. 2. Press select again, the voltage setting will start flashing, use the pluss and minus keys to adjust. 3. Press enter once you've sdjusted to the correct voltage. 4. Press enter again and do the same steps as 2 - 3 but with the current. 5. Once your values are set long press enter, which which bring you to the bat check confirmation page. Press enter again to confirm. 6. Allow to charge until the charger emits a beeping sound and displays full in the screen.

Hello! I really understand the step 3 (because I think that I need set amperage instead of voltage) and step 4 (make step 2 - 3 again). How can I set up the the volgage limit = 6v? And the charger limit 150mAh or 0,1A. Thanks a lot!

* didn't understand

Remember to make sure to hold enter when you want start the charging.

Hi James! So, I didn't understand the step 3 (because I think that I need set amperage instead of voltage) and step 4 (make step 2 - 3 again). How can I set up the the volgage limit = 6v for my battery? And the charger limit 150mAh or 0,1A. Thanks a lot!

Can I connect it directly to the motor? If yes, how should I set the turnigy accucel 6?
 EstebanT 771 points
Ufuk! That is not easy to answer. How much power? 50W 6A is the limit. What type of motor? Brushed or brushless? The last being three phased which require an ESC between the motor and the power source (battery, or whatever).

Thank you EstebanT for your answer. The motor link: www.link with ESC, I use Turnigy Multistar 20A with a Power distribution board, I want connect the accucel directly to power distribution board, that is possible?
 Ufuk 2 points
The motor is NTM Prop Drive Series 28-26 1100kv / 252w (short shaft version)
 EstebanT 771 points
In theory, yes. It should work, but limited to 50w-6A. However, there is the possibility of getting an error messge from the charger, which may "feel" the ESC as a short. I pressume you are trying to do some bench runs, so in my opinion it will be better to use the power supply you use for the accucell direclty to feed the ESC (pay attention to the limits of voltage of your esc and motor: 16.8V). Now the limitation in power wil be given by the power suply limits. Good luck!

Accucel-6 is a really nice product. The firmware of thie charger is exactly same as of any other 50W charger. It has a blue backlit which is easily readable in the sunlight or in dark.
Along with the cigarette lighter adapter, you can use this to charge your batteries while driving down to the field.
http://www.hobbyking.com www.link ANY SPACES IN THE ABOVE LINK)

The buttons are good and it has all metal body which is really good as compared to the Hobby King $18.99 charger.

This charger comes with a multiple charge lead connector which you can use with any kind of battery.

You can even calibrate the charger if you feel the readings are a little incorrect.

For calibrating this charger follow these steps:

1.) Power off the charger.
2.) Press and hold the (dec" and "start" buttons.
3.) Power on the charger. (you will hear 3 beeps in a row). Keep the buttons pressed.
4.) You will enter into the calibration screen where the voltage detected by the charger is displayed on the screen (voltage on output leads).
5.) Attach any battery to the output leads of the charger.
6.) Using a digital multimeter, correct the reading of the voltage by pressing "inc" or "dec" buttons till the reading matches with that of the multimeter.
7.) Press "Stop" when you are done.
8.) Your charger is calibrated now.

You can repeat these steps as many number of times

I'm very happy with this charger.
I tested with my cheap voltmeter the final volatge and it seemed lower than displayed by the charger.
So i tried to calibrate it :

Hold on "ENTER" and "-" button at while powering on the charger.
The charger display something like this :

plus00 VOL: x.xxV
SAVE(ENTER)

Then plug in a battery in the charging plug and you can see the voltage detected by the charger.
Now you can adjust it by pressing plus or -

I just have to find a good voltmeter because i don't trust my voltmeter more than the accucel !

I ordered 2 of these chargers from HobbyCity, as I wanted a simple, easy-to-use charger for my Li-Po batteries. I found the charger very user-friendly, even though no manual is supplied with it. However, I have found a link to the charger manual here which may be useful to www.link read it through, the Turnigy Accucel-6 has even more capability than I first believed just by pressing the buttons!! The balance functions work really well and much information can be obtained from the charger displays. This is a really impressive charger, all the more so given the price.

Thanks again HobbyCity for a great product!!

Bought one as support to my standard field charger (MPX LN5014). Some of the features I like (vs old charger):
plusbright display easily readable in the sun.
plusbalancer functionality with detailed voltage display of all cells.
plusfaster LIPO loading without the final "trickle charge"
plusstore discharge, memory etc.
plusnice set of connecting cables.
pluslow shipping weight.
-only visible drawback is the black housing, which will tend to get hotter in direct sunlight.

Nice charger, not so good discharger.

Good: 1) bright display easily readable
2) balancer functionality with detailed voltage display of all cells on one screen.
3) Memory for batteries
4) USB data collection
5) Many connecting cables.
6) Cheap to buy
7) Can be used with Twin pack charge lead to charge two 3s1p: www.link Good, easy to use menu

Bad: (reason for 4 stars)
1) Discharge function is only so so. With a 3s1p you can discharge at a maximum of .5a and with 6s1p just .2a so it can take all night just to discharge a pack.
2) Fan makes a lot of noise, this is probably due to the charge's small size they had to put a small fan that moves a lot of air to cool it down.
It is a budget charger with above budget performance, you don't need to discharge a lot of full packs get it.

Note to the review below, you need to plug in the power and balancing port at the same time to balance charge.
