    TURNIGY ACCUCEL 6

    Does anyone have ANY experience with this charger/balancer? I could not believe how cheap it is and had to order 1 to check it out. Any info would be great.

    RE: TURNIGY ACCUCEL 6

    We have the 6 and the 8. They work amazingly well. Have used them on Lipo, Life, Nicad, Nimh and lead acid batteries. Have not had a problem at all.

    RE: TURNIGY ACCUCEL 6

    I'm pretty new to all of this but thought they would be a good buy. I bought one and gave it a try on some LiPo's and it worked so well I bought another one. They are well worth the price.

    RE: TURNIGY ACCUCEL 6

    Thanks guys... is there a rule of thumb for how fast or slow you should charge a battery pack? I am using 2700mah 4.8v nimh packs. What would be a good rate for fast or slow charges and how should i set up the safety timer/peak charge settings?

    RE: TURNIGY ACCUCEL 6

    I too am looking at this charger to replace my DDVC ACE charger. My battery backs are Nicads and NimH from 250-2000 mah. Which power supply would you buy for AC power ? The price is definitely right !!!

    Was looking at the Triton EQ also. Which would you buy.

    Thanks for the help

    RE: TURNIGY ACCUCEL 6

    I have one, Fantastic piece of kit. Mines 6 months old, no issues yet.

    Theres also a new 4 channel charger out for $100-00. Will get that instead. so I can charger multiple planes and my Tx LiFe battery at once. Ithink it s 60W per channel charger. Accucell 6 is 50W per channel.

    One thing you may not like about it is the noisey cooling fan. My dogs hate the thing.

    RE: TURNIGY ACCUCEL 6

    I am very happy with it... just wish i could get specific charge rates for the batteries that i am using... the charger has worked flawlessly and is easy to program.

    RE: TURNIGY ACCUCEL 6

    What do you mean by "specific charge rates for the batteries you use". Are the readings from the charger not consistent with the end results ?

    RE: TURNIGY ACCUCEL 6

    If you want to do a quick top off at the field you set it to 2 amps for an hour... if you want to charge it over night and get a good deep charge you charge it at .5 amps for 8 hours... i am not well versed in battery maint. and charging... very old school.

    RE: TURNIGY ACCUCEL 6

    I just found it the Accucel 6 today. I was looking up info on the Venom and came across a pic of the accucel 6. I'd hate to pay $100 more for the exact same charger!


    I'm thinking about getting four chargers so at $150-$250 each would be pretty pricey. At $40 each I could get more batteries! Now if these Turnigy battiers I looked at are safe I'd be set for a lot cheaper than I thought! 22.4 V 6s 5000 mHa for $70 when the name brand ones go for $250?

    You could try the new $19 chargers at HC also. They seem to work. Smaller and fan blows out the bottom.
