Re: LiFe Battery Charger

I've got the same batteries you posted in your other thread(just ordered some more last week actually)
I've used the HobbyKing chargers with great success. The little entry level one Ec6 or something, does just fine, within tolerances.

Re: LiFe Battery Charger

The accucel 6 series from hobbyking are great. I have ordered a 400w new charger to deal with my 6 cell 5000 packs and I might put one of my accucel 6 chargers up for sale later this winter,

Re: LiFe Battery Charger

Yup, as stated above, the HK Accucel 6 for the price is a great charger. I have 2 in use and they both work great.

You can fly Hitec or use the other "low tech" stuff!!

Re: LiFe Battery Charger

Yes the TP 610 charger is a grat little charger . I run the bigger 1010c and the new TP820CD which is fantastic. Also Thunder Power has 2 years warrantee on their chargers.

Re: LiFe Battery Charger

A few other quality charger brands to check out. These are not much more expensive than some of the cheap clone chargers from HK, but have a solid reputation and customer support.

Note: These are all multi chemistry (Ni-mh, Ni-cd, Li-Po, Li-Fe, and Pb).

iCharger 106B+:
Also available at HK:

FMA Cellpro Multi4:

I personally like the Hyperion series, namely the 1420iNET3. But this is a more expensive charger at $135 (on sale):
