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.

Great charger - but mine just switched to what looks like chinese text. How do I change it back to english?

"Power supply not included"?! Are you kidding me? I bought this thinking that I would be able to use it! Any suggestions for how I can power it?
 Maria 217 points
If you have an old pc power supply you can hack it to make and excellent power supply. Otherwise hobbyking sells a nice selection of power supplies. anything between 12-17v and 5 amps should be fine. (if helpful please rate correct answer) Cheers

If you look at the input 11~17VDC it would indicate a power supply adapter AC~DC or even a battery. I use some "HobbyKing Power Supply 100~240v 5A" PRODUCT ID: HK15-5.

I use a 15A regulated power supply from Radio Shack at home, or my car at the field.

How many amps does this charger draw/what size power supply do i need?
 handyjap 557 points
50W plus losses, I go for 75W and know that I will not overload the power supply. I use "HobbyKing Power Supply 100~240v 5A" PRODUCT ID: HK15-5 as power supply.

It's helpful to oversize also in case you want to run two or more of these at once in the future.

Hi would this charger work with the Turnigy nano-tech 1300mAh 3S 45~90C Lipo Pack I am not sure which charger would be best for this battery an so I was wondering if anyone could send me in the right direction! Thanks!!

This charger will be OK for your battery. Don't forget to buy power supply, it is not included.
 handyjap 557 points
As HobbySun say, it works very well for me as well, and I use "HobbyKing Power Supply 100~240v 5A" PRODUCT ID: HK15-5 as power supply.

how many batteries in parallel can you charge at one time off a charging board with this charger/discharger? I have had it quite a while but have only used it one battery at a time.
 EstebanT 660 points
Typically, a parallel charging board (you are supposed to purchase one separately) will allow you to process 6 similar packs (same capacity and cell count - and cell type, of course) simultaneously. However, most important limiting factor is the Charger Output Power, which is limited to 50 Watts or 6 Amps (whichever is reached first) in this case. The power required for one single LiPo pack that is charged at 1C rate can be calculated by the product of the capacity (in amps) by the number of cells of the pack, by 3.7, i.e. the nominal voltage of a single LiPo cell. Example: a 2200mAh capacity 3S LiPo pack will demand 2.2x3x3.7 = 24.4 watts for a 1C charge (2.2 amps). Processing 2 of these packs simultaneously with a parallel board will take this charger to its power limit. You can do your own calculations for your batteries and figure out how many of them you can process at the same time. Remember: must all be the same capacity, cell count and cell type!!! Hope this answer helps you! Best Regards!

yes I was already aware that you can only charge same size cell batteries in parallel. but the formula you put out there will be very helpful for the future. they have a new accucell 6 out now with 80 watts and 10 amps so you can charge more than one at a time. i'm gonna get the new version, but i'm holding back for awhile hoping the usa warehouse will have it soon because its only currently available in the international warehouse. the new version will allow you to run it through your usb port on your computer and monitor and watch what's going on. I like that feature also.
 handyjap 557 points
Even with same capacity it still can be dangerous. After some fire I decided to buy another charger rather than parallel charging. One of the cells on one of the batteries were too low and the other battery dumped it's charge into the bad cell.

after doing a lot of reading up on it I also decided to just buy a second charger instead of risking the batteries integrity and a possible fire. i'm also concerned about how they could possibly balance out. so i'm gonna take the safe route.

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.
