The HOTA range of charger/dischargers is quickly becoming renowned for their quality, reliability, and numerous great features. This amazing 1000W 4-channel charger/discharger can charge 4 x 1~6S LiPo and batteries at up to 4 x 250W, or you can combine 2 outputs together to achieve up to 500W. It offers loads of protection to safeguard against damaging itself or your battery packs such as temperature protection, over-voltage, over-current, input and output reverse protection, short circuit protection, and much more (see the attached manual for the full list). It utilizes a highly optimized algorithm for charging management, and its advanced circuit design offers a 94% operating efficiency.


It features a simple system for programming, there is a channel switch key for selecting which channel you wish to program and a speed shuttle key for all the other programming selections. This speed shuttle key is pressed to enter the task, scrolled to adjust the task, then pressed again to enter the task, all very straightforward and simple. It also has a 2.8" (320x240) 260000 colors IPS display which makes the whole user experience a very easy and simple affair. A unique feature of this charger is that it recycles the discharge power when being used to discharge a battery. This regenerative discharge takes most of the output battery's energy and puts it back into the input battery in a balanced, environmentally friendly way.


The HOTA F6 has numerous ports, on the input side, there is a standard XT60 DC port for the input power of 10.5~30V DC. Then on the output side, there is a multi-function port, 4 x XT60 output ports, 4 x 6S balance ports, dual 5V (type A) USB port, and a Type-C interface for firmware updates. The multi-function port has a Futaba/JR style connector which can be used as a servo tester for testing your servos or for testing the output of your receiver and transmitter.


Overall this is a fantastic, user-friendly 4-channel charger/discharger that will charge or discharge 4 batteries simultaneously, or you can combine 2 outputs for even greater charging power. It is suitable for LiHV, LiPo, LiFe, LiLon, Lixx, NiZn, NiCd, NiMH, Pb, and Eneloop batteries and each port can charge/discharge different chemistry batteries at the same time. All this can be done in your workshop if you have a suitable power supply or out in the field when connected to a DC battery source.

So Far It Works Great

Jan 11, 2023

I bought this because I routinely need to charge more than one battery at a time. The unit works well and is easy to use. The only complaint and its small, is that the selector wheel is very sensitive so that when you are selecting battery size and amperage, it rolls past what you want easily. After making the selections, you push down on the wheel. It is easy to accidentally turn the wheel as you are pressing downward and then it changes what you selected. Again, this is a minor nuisance. Overall, I'm happy with this charger.

Surprisingly good charger

Apr 27, 2022

Bought this charger to replace a high-end 2 channel 500W charger. It works better then the 3 times more expencive charger, and has double the power. Settings are a breeze, the menu is very intuitive. The HOTA F6 has no battery memmory's like the old charger, but I don't miss them. Cell count is automaticly detected, and setting parameters is verry easy. The set parameters are then copied to the next channel you want to use. Verry convenient when charging pultiple battery's with the same specs. I fully recommend this powerfull and versitile charger!

Brilliant Product

Jan 02, 2022

Great product - superb flexibility, power & a great interface. Watch out if buying from mainland Europe if in the UK. I got stung with import taxes and VAT on £160 order .... Hobbyking will be dead to me if they do not sort out a dedicated UK Centre

Verry nifty little charger!

Dec 03, 2021

I received my F6 e few days ago and am verry happy with it. It's amayzing how much technology Hota can put in such a little box. I bought it as a replacement for my chunky and heavy 2 chanel 300 Watt charger, this F6 is in a different league!
The charger is well build, and operating it is verry straight forward. The menu is self explanitory, I didn't need the manual at all. The display has all the information you need, especially if you switch to single channel display. It's verry versitile and charges all the batteries currently known to man. It's rediculous that you can charge 4x 250 Watts with this compact box! The charging results are fast and accurate, the batterypacks balance verry well, and if you let them sit out the trickle charge cycle after finishing the main charge the cells are within 0,002 Volt of each other!
I only noticed that it's best to check the calibration of the four channels with a three digit volt meter. My F6 had a 0.005 to 0.015 Volt deviation on several balance outputs. And a little dissapointing is the discharge, using internal discharge it only can dissipate 10 Watt. For an acceptable discharge time you definitely need to use the external discharging feature.
Pros: Size, Price, Functionality, Plenty of power, Ease of operation
Conns: Verry small internal discharge capacity, No leads supplied
