Turnigy P606 LiPoly/LiFe AC/DC Charger (US Plug)
Turnigy have once again produced a compact charger with excellent features. This balance charger has either a AC or DC input voltage allowing charging at home or out where your using your models. The charger has more than enough power, 50W, to provide a maximum charging current of 6A.
The unit is designed to charge from 1S to 6S batteries. It can handle different combinations at the same time, 6x1S or 3x2S or 2x3S or 1x2S plus 1 x 4S or 1x1S plus 1x5S or 1x6S. There is no need to stop the charger when connecting or disconnecting batteries as the battery will start charging (after 20secs) when plugged in.
This charger is only for use with LiPoly or LiFe batteries.
So if you are looking for a simple charger for home or the workshop the Turnigy P606 would be perfect.

Slow ...yes! Expect to get 1.5ah of charge into your battery at a 2.0-2.2 amp rate after an hour but in the end you have to go slow anyway to get all the cells balanced. Other "balance" chargers I have seem to go over the 4.200 volt limit on a couple of cells in a 6s pack or are high on their voltage measurements. Not this one, and talk about easy to use ... Plug in the balance lead and let it charge ... Quiet fan when it is working hard on AC power and as the power drops off the fan shuts down for total silence. I bought two for a friend because it is easy to use and liked it so much I got one for myself!This is an excellent charger that allows you to charge a wide variety of batteries. I connect two 3s or up to 6 1s batteries. You can monitor the charge state of each cell to see how much it was discharged to make you aren't over-discharging your batteries and shortening their life. Setting the charging rate is easy. It even beeps when all the cells have been fully charged.Very slow, it is so slow that you will get roots wile waiting for your LiPos.
My LiPo of 3s, 2200mah 40c, was charged in 3:17 hours at rate of 2.1 Amps.
Normally this same LiPo in my Reaktor take less 1 hour to charge at 2.1a in balance mode. This Charger take more tan 3 times almost 4 times to charge the same LiPo at the same rate of charging.

Hobby King it is not your standard.
Regards.This is an excellent charger for LiPo batteries. It charges multiple batteries at one time, monitors the charge state of each cell and beeps when charging is completed. You can monitor the charging rate and voltage of each cell while it's charging too.
