Great charger for the money easy use and works just fine !
I'm very pleased with this charger, cells are perfectly balanced every time and it is really quiet as the fan only works with large batteries. I like the fact it can charge at low current making it precise. I have much more confidence in it than in the iMax B6/B8.
It's a shame it isn't available in other warehouses!! Had to pay customs (UPS) but still worth the price.
it is just battery killer..Doesnt charge properly.. for 3s it shows 12.60 V at the end but when you check with multimeter it is 12.55V..and cells not balanced equal..4.15- 4.18- etc...i did RMA form and made video but HK said the guarantee is invalid..As i know all products except batteries have 1 year warranty..
Shortly!!! the charger is in the trash...
Great product for this value
best charger for the price till now. I bought and sold many of that to my customers no complains till now, the extra functions are useful and might be needed by some users so its good to know they're here
A great charger, it's working flawlessly with all LiPo / LiFe I have charged/balanced at home.Even has a menu for the mesurement of internal resistance. I don't know how good is at this point, but is a nice extra feature. I would recommend to charge the batteries inside a battery fireproof bag, just in case any of them puffs while charging.
Best bang for the buck charger available! Handles everything I throw at it. Has the exact same features as the 300W version, including regenerative discharge :)
What a charger for the price ! (even at twice the price but don't tell HK!)
not only great for speedily charging LiPo LiFe Nicad & NiMh (a 4s LiPo 5000mah in just 30 minutes from flat!) but you can also use it for hot wire foam cutting and powering your brushed motors .. My choice of charger for field charging giving me hours of fun with very little waiting around time ! Highly recommended after many many uses ..
This is a very nice charger for the price.
Upon arrival I opened the charger to check for any manufacturing defects. The only issues I found with my unit was the lack of flow through on most through hole solder joints. After a quick touch up the charger went back together and performed flawlessly.
I have used this charger to charge LiPo cells from 1-4S, 50-2200mAh. It has detected the cell count correctly every time.
I have also used the charger to power other devices. Using the motor break-in mode you can use the charger as a variable powersupply with current limiting.
Fit and finish of charger is acceptable. Some gaps in the case and the LCD sits a little farther in than optimal.
One major downside is the lack of a calibration routine. Using the 300W routine does not work. You are able to view the calibration data, however you can not make changes. The voltage calibration was 0.015V out on a couple cells (Measured with a Fluke 87 V cal'd 01/13/16). Because of this I have set my full charge voltage to 4.19 instead of 4.20v to prevent accidental overcharging.
In conclusion, I highly recommend this charger. It performs its duties commendably.
Will update review upon new information.
I bought the 300w 20 amp version first, and then after using that for a while I decided to try one of these for my smaller batts. Most of the time 10amps is plenty.- I ended up buying two more of these (hence the 2nd review) when they went on sale over the past year. So now I have one 300w 20a version and three of these 250w 10a versions. I also got the Turnigy 1080W Power Supply, and hooked them all up to that. Man.. I am a battery charging god!What a combo.
