using this on my zippy 2200mah, 3s1p 25c Lipo packs, It starts really high at like 20 amps then it ticks down and stops when its at like 1 amp. is this ok? I thought charging at such high rates can cause the packs to explode? it only takes maybe 10-12 minutes to charge my packs like this... but I cant seem to see a way to charge them slowly or slower.. lol thanks. I use the Hobby King 540W 100~120v Power supply (13.8v~18v - 30amp) to power this unit.

Also, do I need to plug the small white plug on my battery into this unit as well as the main plug to charge it up? I never do, should I start?

Firstly, the max charge rate for all batteries is on the product listing for each battery, this is the charge C rating, for the Zippy 2200mAh 3S pack it is 2C, which means you can charge the battery at 2x it's amperage, the amperage is the mAh / 1000, so a 2200mAh pack is 2.2 amps a 5000mAh pack is 5 amps etc, therefore the maximum charge rate for this battery is 4.4 amps. The manual in the FILES tab above explains how you change the charge rate. Exceeding the maximum charge rate will significantly reduce the lifespan of the pack. Secondly the "small white plug" you mention is the balance plug and this should be used every time you charge your batteries to ensure that all the cells are of equal voltage, if you don't, one or more cells will fill with a much higher voltage than they are designed for and will eventually cause you problems, again the manual will explain how to enter the balance charge option. If you have been charging these batteries at 20C and not balancing them it is only a matter of time before you have a very serious problem, most likely a fire and Lipoly fires burn very hot and fast and are very hard to put out. The best thing to do would be to fully discharge the batteries using a light bulb or some other type of discharge device, on a concrete surface, outside and well away from any flammable materials and then dispose of them in a manner recommended by your local authorities (council etc) and then get new batteries and charge them in the appropriate manner. It is also a very good idea to use the Storage function on your charger if you don't plan to use the batteries for a few weeks, as storing them fully charged will also affect their lifespan.

My batteries never seem to charge to the same voltage. They will charge to anywhere between 8.3v and 8.41v. I would like to know why as well.

How is this battery charge?Can I charge my turnigy 5000mah 4s lipo battery in 30minutes?
 Tank1 725 points
As long as the battery has at least a 5C rating for charging and a good PSU (power supply unit)then you will be fine mate.

Great battery charger for the value. Cooling fans are a little noisy when loading batteries with high amperage. The display is bright and easy to read.
The buttons and procedures for the programming are the same of the other charger. Well made and sturdy housing.
Amply satisfied.

Rock solid thus far. Only reached 51C while charging a 6S pack at 12amps. Fans are loud but do a good job cooling the unit.

Got this charger because I have everything from ni-cads to LiIo computer pulls to charge. It seems to be a great charger...but it is kind of hard to tell without any instructions. I have used it with niXX batteries and it does a very good job at detecting delta-peaks, but until I can decipher the lithium settings I'm not going to be using it on my litho batteries. Does HobbyKing have any instructions for this charger?

The charger arrived today , 12 days to new zealand, great and well packed. There have been two issues already the supply lead is way too short, I had to add a meter of (two core cable ) to make it usable. The white balance plug, to multie balance adaptor wouldnt fit in the hole , I bent it trying to get it in,so pulled the unit apart to fix it. I ended up shaving some plastic off the plug, The heat sink inside has been cut with a massive band saw and never cleaned up, what a mess. Apart from that the charger works well .I have a little 50 watt turnigy and it wasnt able to charge a 6s above 86pcnt with 2.5 amps, the 380 w takes it to 98pcnt with 20 watts easily. All up its an ok unit and I would advise others to buy it.

Been a very good charger for me. does a great job at charging my electric bike batteries. pumps out the power!. But boy is she loud, I guess those loud fans are needed with the kind of power it delivers, just make sure you get a nice big power supply for it. I'd definitly buy it again very good value for money.
