Turnigy B6 Compact 50W 5A Automatic Balance Charger 2~6S Lipoly
Is that a charger in your pocket? Yes it is! This neat compact charger is perfect for throwing in your pocket or bag when you're travelling light. But don't be fooled by its size this little charger still packs a punch, it is able to charge 2-6S batteries at up to 5A which for some people will be all they need and for others this makes a convenient second charger to take with them wherever they might need to charge.

I bought this charger as the basis for a custom charger project.
The PCB quality looks good. It is basically the same circuitry as an iMAX B6 but without the discharge circuitry, LCD and buttons.
It is running an 8-bit STM MCU in place of the Atmel device, with the programming pins brought out to solder pads ( 1 from me!).
The one thing I don't like is the default charge rate of 2C. Not all of my batteries support 2C charging and I generally like to stay at 1C to prolong their lives.
Overall it looks good value as a quick field charger. I wouldn't use it at home due to the high charge rate though.
For those complaining about lack of PSU - it is designed as a field charger (i.e. you take a 12V battery or large LiPo). If you don't have a dedicated PSU, then find an old Laptop PSU and chop the connector off :).
caricatore semplice ma validoFinding a power supply was a bit of a pain- I now use a psu from an old pc. Charging is fast enough for the price. The beep that indicates the charge is finished is nice and loud, a very handy feature. A good first charger for anyone starting out.Bought one to got one on the Field. And it works like a charm. But if it got really 50W im not Really sure.Bought a second one for field use. Super easy to use. Good value for the money.nice and compact charger, dont know if its really 50w though
