  • Great charger

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: -It has good efficiency, and with the high current output it can charge large batteries quite quickly
    -Can charge basically any type of battery you will encounter
    -Comes with a good set of adaptor cables
    -Works from 12V, so it's easy to charge your small batteries from a solar system or car battery

    Cons: -It's not available!
    -Needs some modifications to make perfect, from factory the power transistors don't make contact to the back panel. It's a problem if you need the highest power levels.
    -No balance charging for nimh / nicd
    -Doesn't work "out the box" without a power adapter to charge from the wall socket. It needs 12VDC input to work.

    Other: Well worth the money. Good charger for any small battery you might have.

    Pros: I've had this for some time and I use it a lot, mainly for niMh and lithium batteries. This seems to be the same as the Accucell charger and I use the instruction manual for that with this one. It's very handy for cycling cells that haven't been used for a while or trying to revitalise old NiCds. The discharge function is also very useful for measuring the capacity of cells.

    Cons: There are a few. The buzzer is VERY LOUD. It can be turned off but is usefule for indicating a problem as well as indicating the end of a cycle. Be very careful with the settings for discharge. Ithink it can only handle 5 watts of discharge. There have been various reports of transistors burning out. This model is not fitted with a fan unlike some variants of it.

    Other: A very good hobby charger but do look at the more recent introductions on Dealextreme before buying. I'm happy.

  • the real thing about it...

    Pros: ok, it's very cheap, smart, it's efficient. It's smart, charges just about anything, simple to use, i almost didn't read the manual at all and i know all it's settings. It has a lot of useful settings, protections, it's reliable, i'm charging batteries without really supervising him, even on lithiums.

    Cons: While discharching with over 1A it could appear problems. Heat. I'm using it with a 500mAh source, and usually with 4xAA, AAA, 18500, 14500 lithium batteries, so i haven't used it with powerful batteries with more than 4 cells, so i have no problems, but at 900mAh it get's pretty warm, so at 1,5A for example it could appear problems. I recomend using it in a basement for example, or adapt some fan to it, so this problem could be avoid.

    Other: It's your decision if you buy it, it's really healthy for your AA, AAA, lithium 14500, 17500 etc, more protective and efficient than usual simple chargers, it makes your batteries life last longer, meaning more cicles and keeping theyr power in time. Also with some small precautions you can use it with no other problems with alot more powerful battery packs.

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: +Price is lower than any other charger
    +a lot of stuff aditional to the charger

    Cons: -in the way it is origionaly build it would destroy itself while real usage by overheating, especialy while discharging because power transistors have no thermal connection to the case
    -incorrectvoltage measurement
    -incorrect balancing
    -wires are to thin
    -tepm. plug does not realy fit

    Other: Mystery LCD Digital Balance Charger and Discharger (1~6 Cell Lithium / 1~15 Cell NiCD/NiMH)is a cheap charger and when i sag cheap i realy mean cheap!
    I guess neither in america then in europe this charger would get on the market, but thats why we are buing in china!
    With al litle bit of preparing it an fixing the chinese mistakes its quite good for the price!

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Very sturdy build and nicely painted.
    It comes in AL case.
    Lot of cables/connectors and thermal probe.
    Depends on where are you from, but for me it costs about half price!
    Beeping sound can ba switched off! :)

    Cons: 1. Transistors.
    Well it's not really a con since you can put away the back panel and bend them if it's needed.
    I just think that they could be better (more amps)
    The price of better transistors is just few cents more so there is no reason for it.
    They "should" take 5 amps but I doubt that they will work for very long.
    2. If the source is just 0,1V more than 18V the charger will stop working.

    Other: I didn't tried to charge really strong batteries so I can't talk about it but I'm charging 7,4v 950mAh Lipo with 1A and it works without problems.
    (The charger is quite cool at these settings)
    I think if you know about electronics you could find a replacement for the transistors.
    But for the price it's really good.

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: + Many details of the charging.
    + Solid construction and compact.
    + Very useful
    + Simple menu

    Cons: - Thermal sensor not very intuitive to connect. The correct connection is:
    - The pin closest to the DC input is WHITE (+5)
    - The central pin is RED (Temp)
    - The furthest from the DC is BLACK(GND)
    - The power transistors are not properly mounted to the case. The paint acts as isolator in the stock unit
    - The resistor number 16 looks a little burned and smell like this... not good signal :(

    Other: It's not perfect but if you want, can improve it to have a long live.

    posted by bajapete on 17:00:03 G2T 09/02/2009 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: cheap charger that works i believe in pretty much any battery you would use on r/c's these days... i did quick test on lipo nimh and nicd and worked like a champ... was nice to see the cables that was inclued as well.. even has a cte case with it :)it was smaller trhan i thought too and thats a bonus as well.. my shelf's and drawers are packed as is so this will fit anywhere really.... i did not even read manual yet thats how easy it was to use...

    Cons: so far did not find any cons... for the price i dont think i could go and complain about anything anyways

    Other: good charger and does everything my old triton etc hyperion chargers did but for way less money :)

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: + Full control of the charging currents
    + Nice solid construction
    + Very useful for recovering batteries and/or knowing their real capacity
    + Really nice case
    + Looks very Professional

    Cons: - Inaccurate Current & Voltage measurings (+- 5% I estimate)
    - DC cable included doesnt fit
    - Thermal sensor not very intuitive to connect
    - PC Interface is really a MYSTERY !!!!

    Other: This is suitable if you want to have more control over the charging of a battery pack, and a little error (inacurate V/A readings) doesnt terrify you.

    Pros: Nice unit with lots of features. I had a previous version, but this one is even better. You can link it to the PC, suitable free software can be found here:
    <http://www.logview.info/cms/index.php?d_logview_info>. The temperature input is the serial data out, but you must invert the signal before you bring it to pin 2 of the serial connector of your PC. Ground is the one furthest from the DC in, bring it to pin 5 of the serial. The pin closest to the DC input is +5V, useful to power the signal inverter with. Seems to work nicely that way.

    Cons: The power transistors are not properly mounted to the case. This can be solved by screwing them to the back plate, but it seems you must use insulating mica washers. The paint acts as isolator in the stock unit ;-). Surely the transistors would have burned in my unit, given how hot the case gets with properly mounted ones.
    The beeper is much too loud. (same as older versions of this charger). You must quieten it by putting glue in the speaker or you will go crazy.
    This charger sometimes needs a mighty inrush current when you hook it up. Good quality lab power supplies can detect this and go into constant current mode, preventing a successful start. Put a capacitor parallel or put a battery on the output and it will work.
    Voltage accuracy was not fantastic (approx 1%). You can tweak the voltage divider resistors (under the display).

    Other: You can put M3 studs to mount the bottom plate instead of the screws, they will keep distance to the table (for better cooling).
    You can also replace the stock power input jack with two 4mm sockets, now you are glad there are two holes side by side ;-)
    The input appears protected against reverse polarity (mine survived anyway).

  • Great multifunctional charger... my 2nd unit

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: The first unit was so useful that I decided to get a second unit which arrived just yesterday and today my buddy took it off me when he knew that I bought a second unit. Now I am going to place an order for the third unit after I have made this post.

    Cons: Its an exact copy of the iMax B6 but this does not come with the USB function.

    Other: I'm making an order for my third unit and now I wished that I had just ordered three units in Bulkrate which should have saved me a little instead of making three separate orders.
