Claims to have a data store and the manual shows that it has internal resistance measuring and a host of other features that are not actually included. This otherwise seems to handle as a great charger, just a falsely advertised oneThis new one differs a lot from the two ones I already have. The new firmware lacks some of the useful menus e.g. discharge plus but the manual is the same as the old one. I´m disappointed.Well it's not quite as they advertise so beware !! It DOES NOT have Motor test, Foam cut and internal battery resistance functions like the old ones despite the product video saying it has all the features of the older models. Hope a flash update will sort it ?!?
The charger its self is well made and quite compact and comes with long leads to connect to the power supply. It's a very powerful charger and works as expected to be honest it's over kill as I only ever charge at 1C but the extra capacity is there if needed.
As a charger it's great but let down by the fact it's missing functions that it should have in its software!! Come on Hobbyking sort this out !!!Ran it for days non-stop charging and discharging back into a 6s16ah multistar pack very impressive and the dimmable screen is great because too bright can keep you awake. Did a few high current charge and discharge tests and wow works fantastic. Problems are that it is supposed to do several more functions and they are not programmed into it ...yet. Input leads are 12awg and long and you don't want them unplugging when a battery is on the output. Output Jack's are reversed so watch what you are doing ... Negative is on top further away and positive on bottom closer of the right side. Hope to connect with a PC when software arrives and then maybe a flash upgrade soon to get those missing features installed!Superb for my big 6S batteries... gone are the days of slow charges. Inbuilt resistance check us super useful, too.
Also comes with an external temperature sensor. Good for keeping an eye on pack temperatures during charging.
Charger was smaller than I expected but feels and works great.
