POWER
Introducing a charger like no other...the Turnigy Fatboy 8 - an ultra powerful 1300W workhorse! So much more than a charger, we had to call it something else, so we chose to label it a "Battery Workstation". Capable of charging, discharging, monitoring or performing multiple cycles on any current or future battery chemistry at alarming speed, Fatboy 8 represents the end of all speculation about who sells the most powerful battery management system in its class for the best value. At price per WATT, it blows the lid off the competition and represents unprecedented VALUE.

SAFETY
Do not be scared off by the claims of this advertisement by thinking this is too much charger for you. This may be the safest, simplest charger you will ever use. That's because safety was the #1 priority when designing this charger. As a result, you can not make a mistake when you use it. It simply will not let you. It knows how many cells are connected by monitoring charge voltage on each cell in the pack individually. It performs an entire series of tests to make sure the battery is hooked up correctly to the charger before it ever even starts to charge, checking for valid voltages on each cell, reverse polarity conditions, reversed node wiring to name a few. It constantly monitors the total pack voltage and compares that to the sum of the individual cells. It can not and will not ever charge a single lithium cell above the proper end-of-charge voltage and assures you of the most accurate, laboratory quality readings at all times. Furthermore, if a pack has been over-discharged, it will automatically enter low-voltage restore mode. It will reduce charge voltage during cold weather to extend battery life; all parameters associated with this feature can be adjusted by the customer. Even though batteries in general, and especially lithium batteries, represent a volatile potential, the Fatboy 8 reduces the risks associated with maintaining any size battery, any chemistry by magnitudes over other brands. Fatboy 8 represents the next phase in the evolution of safety.

RELIABILITY
Take top-notch components capable of handling all of the stresses associated with super-high power, high voltage operation; things like an over-sized heat sink, extra-heavy duty 10AWG input wire, twin cooling fans and a gigantic sendust core toroid inductor to handle higher input current and combine these with stable firmware/software that is thoroughly tested in-house and with outside beta testing, and what you get is a new standard in reliability. We don't like getting chargers back from the field for any reason. That's why we've gone the extra mile on this one.

The Fatboy 8 also features an environmentally friendly, regenerative discharge capability of up to 1300W. Unlike traditional methods of discharge, which deplete the output battery's energy in the form of heat across a transistor, regenerative discharge takes most of that energy and puts it back into the input battery. Regenerative discharge is an optional feature. Turn it on when you need the highest power discharge. Turn it off and use standard internal discharge of up to 100W if you choose.

I've been using this charger for six months now and i love it.
Charges everything and without hassle.
Requires a REALLY big power supply - 500W doesn't cut it if you want to charge anything above 5S.
Balances my 4S fast as lightning.
I can't se myself with another charger in a long time.

The Best charger out there, No doubt! Nobody can compare with this feature rich, high-powered mean battery chargin machine. I promise!

Ive used this charger for a week now, and all i can say is wow, its not my first top end charger, Ive also got the icharger 3010b (1000w), and the Fatboy8 balances my older lipo's far better.

Ive never had a problem with how the icharger works, but the Fatboy8 IMO, is just better, the key thing here is the way it balances, it seems more accurate and it does the last few pcnt of the charger much quicker.

I've looked at the software up loader and I have the latest firmware, I've down loaded the PL8 software but cannot confirm if it works yet.
Anyway full marks from me.

Received one Fatboy charger few days ago. Now I tested It and works flawlessly. Charges like the Powerlab8, it's the same charger. Takes no time to balance all cells with 0.007 volt of precission. Regenerative discharge is also good and the internal resistance measurement feature it's very nice. Very recomended to perform safe and powerful parallel charges. Two 700 W server PSU in series for 24v do the job!. Very recomended and well built.

I bought two on these two months ago and I use with 24V.

So far these operate flawlessly. The programing is very easy and the power is awesome.

By the time I prepare my two airplanes 4 large batteries are charged and I can fly all day without having to wait.

Some to their features can not be found on any existing charger today, but the most impressive is their ability to regenerate a dead battery. When I say dead I mean really dead! For example my friend had a 3C Lipo which he forgot on his airplane with the switch on for 2 weeks. It was not reading anything on any meter. My Hat Boys gave life to this battery and it is like new, we just couldn't believe it but it is true!

Strongly recommended product!

Good news, people. At last, we have found the "Fuel Level pcnt" screen in this charger. To see the screen, you should create new charging profile for any battery on any empty memory cell and you would find this screen among others. I just can't understand why this screen is not seen from any default charging profiles.... Anyway, using this charger for 5 month and it works perfect. Still, 2 x 6S (3,500mAh each) charging with 2C takes only 20 minutes as it was from the very beginning.

Super happy with the TURNIGY fatboy 8, AKA , FMA / REVOLECTRIX Power lab 8. Does not show percentage graph of battery charged as the power lab 8 does, but i normally just keep the volts per cell window open whilst i paralell charge. Just paralell charged 6 x 5000 mah heli batteries at 39.5 amps at 24 volts using my meanwell se 1000-24. total charge time was 27 minutes, perfectly balanced charged, ready to go. GREAT WORK HOBBY KING AND FMA-REVOLECTRIX.

Awesome charger!, balances very fast and very accurately.No waiting endlessly like on the common 50w chargers at the end of charge to balance and then there way off anyway.Comes with no output cables at all.

Note the balance connector is JST PA and will not work with standard JST XH balance taps. Still looking for an adaptor for this.

Just received FatBoy. I've used PowerLab 8 v2 for a couple of days before and therefore, I can compare.... Seems to be exactly the same item (i would disassemble it after tomorrow along with PowerLab in order to prove it), but the firmware seems to be a bit different. For example, FatBoy lacks the fuction of showing charging progress pcnt during charging as PowerLab 8 originally does. This is very useful function, but unfortunately not present here. All other settings and functions seems to be the same. Just charged 2 x OptiPower 3,500mAh from 3,75V to full charge at 1C in 37 minutes.
