Hi All,

I'm looking to buy a Lipo Charger that can charge 2-6s of upto 5000mah at 1C.

I will be charging only one battery at a time.

Can you suggest some good models preferably within 4k and more importantly available locally.

The models I'm looking at currently are:

https://www.rcbazaar.com/products/1334-avionic-b6sac-intelligent-charger.aspx

http://www.rcbazaar.com/products/1333-imax-b6-lipo-battery-chargerdischarger-not-original.aspx

http://www.rcbazaar.com/products/1335-avionic-2b6-dual-charger.aspx

http://www.rcbazaar.com/products/1332-avionic-b6-pro-ac-intelligent-charger.aspx

http://www.rcdhamaka.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=102_96&products_id=1160

http://www.rcdhamaka.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=102_96&products_id=964

http://www.rcdhamaka.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=102_96&products_id=963

Would love to hear your views on any of them. Please pitch in if there are others that I should look at.

I strongly believe that if available, we should buy from our LHS than online stores abroad. This will help our hobby in the long run not to mention being able to get the product quickly albeit at a slight premium.

RCBazaar and RCDhamaka are the closest for me. Joy Rising Hobby is closest outside bangalore.

Looking forward to your suggestions.

Hi, i have the 'original' ImaxB6 charger. Ordered it directly from HK.
http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/__5548__IMAX_B6_Charger_Discharger_1_6_Cells_GENUINE_.html

Its a good buy considering that i charge all my LiPo batteries with it(5000mAh, 3000mAh, a couple of 2200mAh ones, and some more - all about 15 cycles each now). Not just LiPos, even Lead-acid, NiMH and NiCD batteries can be charged with it. I also do a 'storage' charge for the LiPos to 'store' them. Haven't really tried the 'copy' version though.
Hope this helps.
Cheers!

Thanks Veloci. What power supply do you use with the imax? Also how long did the shipping take? Any hassles faced?

I'll try getting a similar once I exhaust the local options.

@Tassem, I use a 60W DC power (12v, 5A) supply for the Imax B6.
Got it for Rs.200 at S.P Road.

Here is the same one with a built in power supply.

SP road is excellent to get most stuff. If only they had better parking options.

How long did the charger take to arrive from HK? I think bangalore customs are relaxed. I've ordered HID kits etc from china. All came in without any issues.

Mugen Seiki Rules



Taseem, if you have fewer batteries, the original IMAX B6 chargers are great. But buy original. Know many were selling duplicate ones saying its original. Get a good PS that works. But it will charge your lipos at 3.3amps only even if you set it at 5amps charge rate.

Practice, and only Practice will make you perfect



622A anyday, accurate balancer and with parellel charging board you can pump up the charging rate 2A / cell to a max of 10A (b6 being 5A max). you will see these small things matter

Too late! Smiley I bought an EV Peak V6AC charger from RCDhamaka. Sadly its an imax clone (With a built in PS). I read a few reviews online and felt that it should last. What do you think?

Plus Sanjeev is a great guy to deal with! I really want to promote the LHS whenever possible. It cost me Rs.3320 All Inclusive.

Currently I have all of ONE battery! lol.. Its a Wolfpack 2S 4200mah. I get full charge in a tad over one hour when balance charging at 4.2A (Displayed).

Funny thing is that it reaches 4.18/19 on one cell within 40min and drops the charge current to 200-600mA till the other cell catches up. Hence the longish time.

622A anyday, accurate balancer and with parellel charging board you can pump up the charging rate 2A / cell to a max of 10A (b6 being 5A max). you will see these small things matter

I wish you had told me earlier! However the current charger is holding up well so far. What's your opinion on this charger? Will it die out on me?
