The HobbyKing Variable 6S is a rapid balance-charger with a high performance microprocessor and unique operating system and equipped with very accurate factory calibrated variable resistors to balance and charge Lithium Polymer and NiMH batteries.
The HobbyKing Variable 6S will handle LiPo/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 HobbyKIng Variable 6S is a bunch of input and output wires which should satisfy any charging requirement.
This charger is very accurate, being configured and calibrated at the factory, plus you can recalibrate it yourself if required.

I have purchased this charger more than a year ago now.
It worked fine until it suddenly keeps saying "input vol err".
It is out of warranty so no support from HobbyKing.
It is a nice charger, when it works :(
Looking for a more robust charger now.have charged all my lipos and life batteries and even my nicads no problem at all great item!!Got to connect the power before hooking up the battery I've fried 3 so far they warranty but your on your own for the shipping!Don't buy, it is rubbish Don't buy, it is rubbish Don't buy, it is rubbish Don't buy, it is rubbish Don't buy, it is rubbish Don't buy, it is rubbish Don't buy, it is rubbish Don't buy, it is rubbish Don't buy, it is rubbish Don't buy, it is rubbish Don't buy, it is rubbish Don't buy, it is rubbish Don't buy, it is rubbish Don't buy, it is rubbish Don't buy, it is rubbish Don't buy, it is rubbish Don't buy, it is rubbish Don't buy, it is rubbish Don't buy, it is rubbish Don't buy, it is rubbish Don't buy, it is rubbish Don't buy, it is rubbish Don't buy, it is rubbish Don't buy, it is rubbishIt would be nice if this came with a manual that was better written. I had to look up you tube videos to figure out how to program it to work on my batteries. I would like to see an automatic circut that detects the cell you have plugged into it (2s-6s etc). Once you figure out how to work this, it does its job well. For the price it does just as well as units costing 15pcnt-20pcnt more than you will pay at hobby kingGostei muito deste carrega, escolhe o tipo de bateria, quantidade de celulas, a correte em ampre, escolhe se quer carregar, descarregar, balancear, carga rpida, memria de programaes j utilizadas, a nica coisa que no gostei entrada entre 12 e 18 volts, depende de uma fonte grande ou uma bateria automotiva, uma bateria de 2.2a leva uma hora para carregar completamente mais uma hora para balancear, gostei do produto.
Dudyi bought 3 of these for my grand children, what a great little charger i was concerned about these not having a fan and there where no ventilation opening however i was able to charge 3 cell 3600 mah battery's at the max 5amps continuously in about 1 hour 15 min to 4.2 volts for each battery with it not even getting warm let alone hot, also its very simple to operate,a great buy and chargerWork's Excellent and im very amazed by how easy it actually is, Im new to lipo after years of being out of RC flying . there are a few youtube videos on this charger and I was just amazed how simple it really is .the only complaint I have is for battery connector on the Unit, its a Dean and id like to have seen it be an XT60 but thats more preferance than need.Didn't work out of the box I keep getting a input volume error when I try to charge a battery... HK suport told me to send it back but I don't think it is worth sending back since the shipping will be worth more than the charger
This is a very good charger and easy to use. It is a lot better than the new one I paid $129.00 for a name brand and I still have not figured it out yet.
But with the adapters that come with it are great and you can charge about any battery with it. You will not go wrong with it for sure..
