The Turnigy Reaktor QuadKore 4 x 300W 20A Balanced Changer is now compatible with NiZN and LiHV, max voltage 4.7V and comes with updated software. The Turnigy Reaktor range of chargers is known for delivering big power in a compact package thanks to its innovative synchronous buck-boost converter technology.
The Turnigy Reaktor QuadKore offers everything that you've come to expect from the range but in a 4-pack!
Capable of processing up to 4 batteries simultaneously, each section of this high power balancing charger/discharger can provide up to 20A charge rates and handle up to 6S LiPoly/LiFe or 17S NiCd/NiMH accurately. Not only does the Reaktor QuadKore offer a super high charge rate capability it also features storage charging, cyclic charging/discharging, 10 charge parameter memory and a high power balance function to keep your batteries in top condition.
The functions will work up to the maximum 1200W capacity of the charger, so you could easily charge 4 x 3S batteries at 20A (4 x 12.6V x 20A = 1008W), 3 x 4S batteries at 20A (3 x 16.8V x 20A = 1008W) or 2 x 6S batteries at 20A (2 x 25.2V x 20A = 1008W). When using a 12V lead acid battery (i.e. the battery in the car you use to drive yourself and your gear to the field or track) as the power supply you can use the regenerative function of the Reaktor QuadKore to discharge your battery into the supply battery and get the full 20A discharge.
The Turnigy Reaktor QuadKore 1200W is an all-in-one power house charging solution for your batteries.

I miss the features DCHG+ and configurable Balance Mode (old model have)
Otherwise still a good powerful charger.Gravely disappointed in this "new" unit. If you love your old QuadKore, you will hate this unit. Many more features were lost than gained. Furthermore, the units can't be used once purchased. The manual is plastered with "read manual before use" and "read warning before use" - the old manuals are being shipped with them. I confess I did turn it on, and I can confirm much of what I loved concerning customization and convenience features are gone. If you just want a dumb charger to charge your chemistry, and you're willing to trust the firmware, then this is probably okay for you.
