IMAX B6AC+ 50W/5A Computer Battery Balancer Charger (NiCd NiMh Lipoly LiMn)

1 Customer Review

"I've been involved in RC hobbies for years now and if there's one thing that will keep your models running their best, as well as save you money, is a state of the art, programmable battery charger. Having the ability to properly charge, discharge, balance and store your batteries will insure their long term peak performance and protect them against needless damage.
I recently got into electric helicopters and like my cars, I've jumped in with all feet. I had very little exposure to LiPo battery technology and needed to research their science and charging needs. It was obvious I needed a charger that was state of the art for this new battery technology. I settled on the B6AC because of It's versatility, known quality and state of the art features.
This specific model can plug into an AC outlet, connect to your car battery, power supply, etc. It's programming can be as automatic or as customizable as you choose. It's flexible enough to do just about any battery you're going to run into and is small enough to throw into your RC tool bag. The build quality, connectorization, LCD and 4 button program panel are plainly marked and extremely logical to use. The pricing, here at Amazon, is excellent and the included instruction manual is very well written. You will receive with the charger cables to accommodate all of the most common battery connectors as well as a panel to plug in the a LiPo's balancing connector for 2-6 cell (2S-6S) batteries.

There are a lot of very capable charges available, but for the money, you will have a difficult time finding one that has the reliability, flexibility or quality you get with a genuine SkyRC charger.
In a hobby where you have so many opportunities to spend money, getting the best charger seems to be a small price to pay for the benefits you will receive.
