TURNIGY continues to lead the way in compact AC battery chargers with the ACCUCELL S60.
This unit has been designed to balance charge battery packs up to 4S and has more than enough capacity too, with a 60W maximum charging current of 6A and a discharge current of 2A. It has a high-performance micro processor that controls charging and discharging and is suitable for use with all current battery types including LiPo, Lilon, LiFe, NiCd, iHM, PB and the new generation LiHV with a high end voltage of 4.35V.
TURNIGY knows that safety is paramount around battery chargers and like all of their designs the Accucel S60 has many safety features including terminal voltage control, automatic charging current limit, capacity limit, temperature threshold and processing time limit, built in to minimise the risk of overload/overcharging.
The free “Charge Master” software gives you unparalleled ability to operate the S60 charger through your computer. You can monitor pack voltage, cell voltage, resistance and other data during the charging process and view charging data in real-time graphs.
“Charge Master” will prove to be a valuable tool for monitoring battery performance. All you need do is to download the software to your PC and connect a USB cable between the charger and your PC.
So if you are looking for a charger or are thinking of upgrading your old Accucel then the S60 is definitely the charger for you.

TURNIGY ACCUCELL S60 Charger
18AWG Charging Cable with XT60 Connector
For the price this charger is very good. However it's not perfect - at least my unit has an annoying coil whine when it is in use, kind of headache-inducing if you're in the same room with it. And the fan can be loud and isn't very "smooth" - it kind of rattles. Third problem is that its notification sounds are extremely loud and shrieky, they hurt your ears. Luckily they can be turned off, at least, but they'd be useful if they weren't so darn ear-piercing.
Other than those auditory points, the unit has worked well, no problems with the actual getting batteries charger side of things, which is what you'd get one for after all. The unit also looks quite nice, and isn't too big considering the power source as well as the fan - it's higher than a B6 AC version, but has a smaller footprint.
One thing to note is that it only comes with an XT60 charging cable, so for anything else you'll need to do some additional shopping, but that's understandable for this price.Good quality, better priceDas Ladegerät ist schön klein und leicht zu bedienen
und ein guter zweitlader
TOP +++++Good product and easy to use.I got this charger while looking for the best entry level charger to get into RC Touring cars. It has the known and trusted imax interface so no surprises there, its been very reliable and supports alot of battery types.
Since it can charge Lipos up to 6A, you can recharge your car battery on site quickly.
I also like its compact size and built in balancer port, very easy to store and transport to the track.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Aiglw2NcFWQMes Deux imax B6 commençais à fatiguer du coup j'ai pris ce petit chargeur en attendant, il fonctionne très, l'équilibrage est correct, le ventilo se fait un peu discret mais souffle assez pour le refroidir convenablement, produit à recommander !Habe mir diesen Charger gekauft, weil er günstig ist und die gleichen Funktionen bietet wie ein Charger von SkyRC. Das Zubhör ist etwas dürftig, es beinhaltet lediglich einen Ladeadapter für Lipos mit XT60 Stecker. aber da ich ausschließlich Lipos mit XT60 verwende, ist das für mich völlig ausreichend. Ich würde diesen Charger wieder kaufen. 5 Sterne von mir!!!premiers essais plutot concluent il a des fonctions en plus que mon b6 : mesure de resistance interne lipo life lilo lihv meme si il charge que du 4s c'est un bon chargeur en esperant que l'alimentation AC tienne le coup car mon premier b6 DC marche tjrs mais mon b6 AC a cramé
