This charger is great! Good price, works as expected, and no surprises! This is a typical Hobbyking item...IE, Don't expect documentation, and if you don't know how to use it, go to YouTube, and make a comment on one of my videos and I'll show you how to do it.
It is super easy to use, once you know what you're doing. If you're new to the hobby, GET HELP, or you could make a mistake and burn down the house, Seriously!!!
...This video shows how to use the C3 I'm reviewing here, since it works exactly the same, It is one of two chargers that I use almost every day. The C3 is sitting right next to this charger I'm reviewing here in the aforementioned video.Does not work and would cost too much to return. Would not buy this item again. ThankDoes not work and would cost too much to return. Would not buy this item again. Thankgee what's it take to be a certified buyer???gee what's it take to be a certified buyer???Charger was bought early 11/2016. Does NOT have a memory for more then one battery at a time (advertisement says it has memory for 10). Instructions do not match what appears on charger screen. Hobbyking asked for order # part # and pictures and description of problem , this was done as requested. Now not good enough, now they want same info again along with a video of the problem. Pretty hard to make a video of something that does not work especially if you do not have a video camera phone and am a mute (no voice) my phone is designed for still photo and texting for person that has NO VOICE, like disabled!. My advice is DO NOT BUY THIS CHARGER the instructions do not work with it and Hobbyking is going to try their best to blame it on you, the consumer and run out the warranty for a no fuss return, or make it difficult for you to return it. Anything to make a sale. In my case they promised to send me a updated or correct instruction manual but changed there mind and chose to ask for info I already had provided to them and also the mentioned video. One very dissatisfied customer...John in Calif. USAFirst impressions. Really nice charger with a lot of functions. I wish the balance adapter was longer but that's my only complaint. I bought this to charge some 5200 2s zippy packs. Charges those in about 45 mins at 1C. After using it I realized there was so much more it could do. About 6 months ago the 9.6 dustbuster I used in my hobby room quit charging. So I disassemble it to find it packed with sub c NiMh batteries, I put an xt-60 plug on it to charge it with my tower hobbies charger. It worked ok for a while, but it eventually would no longer hold a charge. I decided to try the cycling feature on this charger. I cycled it twice then let it fully charge it at 5.0 amps. I let it set for a week and it still had a charge. Maybe not the most powerful charger, but and excellent one indeed.
