This is a perfect charging package for LiPo, LiOn, LiFe, NiMh, NiCd, Pb Batteries!
If you have been searching for just one RC battery charger to handle all of your charging needs, look no further than the iMAX B6AC w/ Built in Power Supply. This charger is AC/DC compatible so it can be plugged into a wall outlet or powered from your power supply or car battery out in the field. This machine can handle charging, discharging, balancing (LiPO/LiON/LiFE cells), cycling and much more. And your charge options are remembered by the charger so it is quick and easy to plug it in and start charging right away.

Optimized operating software
When charging or discharging, the B6AC has an `Auto` function that sets the current automatically. This prevents overcharging of Lithium batteries. Every charging program in the B6AC is controlled with mutual links and communication to eliminate possible errors, introducing maximum charging safety.

High-power and high-performance circuitry
The B6AC employs a circuit that has a maximum output power of 50W.

Cell Balancing
It has an individual-cell-voltage balancer inside. This does not require any extra balancer when charging Lithium batteries (Lilo/LiPO/LiFe) for proper cell voltage balancing.

Lithium Battery `Fast` and `Storage` Modes
Fast charge reduces the charging time of Lithium batteries. Storage mode will charge or discharge the battery to the proper voltage level for when you plan to shelve the battery for an extended period of time.

Features:

  • Charges LiPo, LiON, LiFe (1S-6S cells)
  • Charges NiMh, NiCd (1-15 cells)
  • Charges Lead-Acid (2V-20V)
  • Charging, Discharging, Cycling, Balancing (LiPO/LiION/LiFE cells) (1-5 cycles)
  • User definable charge rates from 0.1 amps to 5.0 Amps
  • 50 Watt max output. Charge Amperage auto adjusts depending on battery voltage. (i.e. Charge rate for 3S LiPo: 50W/11.1V = 4.5A max charge rate)
  • Balance Port Built In (Balances 2S-6S Batteries) (Uses Align/E-Flite/CSRC style Balance Plug Port) (Thunder Power adapter available separately, GTP1005)
  • Comes with 5 different charging plugs
    1. Dean’s Plug
    2. Futaba / Receiver

    This is a great charger and I haven’t had any problems. Don’t be fooled, it is a dual input power charger not a dual output charger.

    It never worked from the get go. You plug it in and it just beeps. So I called and I spoke to Customer Service. He wanted me to fix it by checking the main cord. There was nothing wrong with the cord. I started a 120 volt fan with it. Then I hooked it to DC volts with the DC cord and I could get it to work if I held the cord just right. I tried another cord and it did the same. So I called back and told them what I did and asked to return the item. They told me the only way to return it was to buy another and send the old one back for a credit. I ended up chucking it into the recycle bin. I’m sorry to say that I’m not impressed with the unit or the service.

    Hi Richard. I am sorry for your poor experience. Sometimes manufacturing defects occur and we have no problem providing a warranty for items that are not functioning. We even offered to pay for the cost of shipping the faulty unit back to us since it never even worked for you. We have 2 ways of performing a warranty replacement. The first way is that you would ship the item back to us. Once received, we would ship a tested replacement to you. The second way we can perform a warranty replacement is called a rapid replacement. We authorize your card for the cost of the product and ship you a replacement immediately. Once the faulty unit is returned to us by, the authorization on your credit card is dropped. Both of these return methods were proposed to you from what our records indicate. Since you had an immediate need for the charger and refused to allow us to authorize your card, both of these methods were declined by you. As we said, we have no problem performing a warranty replacement as we only want to see our customers happy. If you choose not to accept a replacement under our very simple terms, then it’s unfortunate that we cannot make you ‘happy’. But please do know that we certainly do want to send you a warranty replacement still. So if you can retrieve the charger from your recycling bin, we’re here to help!

    This is very good. It works very well with LiPo packs.

    I would have given this charger 5 stars as it works perfectly well. It is actually a great charger and I’ve had no problems with it. The only reason I didn’t give it 5 stars is that it does only 5 Amps. This means that charging larger than 5,000 mAh LiPo batteries causes it to end charging early due to it thinking it has reached capacity of the battery when it gets to 5,000 mAh, or the 2 hour time limit being hit. Then you have to start the charge again, and it finishes just fine. A small annoyance only. I have two 6500 mAh LiPo batteries. If it could charge at 6.5 Amps, that would be correct for those batteries and there would be no problems of any kind.

    Admin Reply,
    Hi Darren, This charger can charge batteries much higher than 5000mAh. It can be adjusted to match the mAh rating of your battery in the settings menu. Or, the mAh and time safety functions can be turned off completely.

    This charger works great! It’s nicely made out of metal that doesn’t feel cheap. It even times and has an alarm to tell you when the battery is full. It’s completely programmable and you can adjust how many mah you want in your battery. You can also have a safety temperature and time cut off set. If you want a charger that will not disappoint, get this one. This charger only has a deans connector so you will have to buy some more adapters.
