    PZ charger replacement

    The charger that came with my Corsair died. What would be a good replacement for it? I'd like to be able to charge more than 1 pack at once. I'll probably just be charging 3 cell lipos in the 2000 to 3000mah range. Thanks.

    RE: PZ charger replacement

    This Turnigy charger works great:

    http://www.hobbycity.com/hobbycity/s.../Charger_2S~4S

    It charges and balances though the balancing plugs, and it is cheap. It also displays the charge level of each cell so you know how much you have. They sell adapters to go from this charger over to the PZ types. You should also look at the Rhino or Turnigy batteries for a low cost alternative at the above listed website. I have about 10 LIPO chargers (some high end) and these work great.

    RE: PZ charger replacement

    My PZ charger is a bit bummed as well. I purchased the Accucel 6 and never looked back. Charges everything, details follow the URL

    http://www.hobbycity.com/hobbycity/s...lancer/Charger



    The Turnigy Accucel 6 is an entry level balancing charger and discharger which can handle up to 6 cells and 5A.
    The Accucel-6 will handle LiPo/LiFe up to 6S and NiMH/NiCd up to 15S and shows individual cell voltage during charge with realtime updates throughout the charge cycle.
    Bundled with the Accucel-6 is a bunch of input and output wires which should satisfy any charging requirement.


    Features;

    Microprocessor controlled
    Delta-peak sensitivity (NiMH/NiCd)
    Individual cell balancing
    Li-ion, LiPo and LiFe capable
    Ni-Cd and NiMH capable
    Large range of charge currents
    Store function, allows safe storage current
    Time limit function
    Input voltage monitoring. (Protects car batteries at the field)
    Data storage (Store up to 5 packs in memory)
    Battery break in and cycling.



    Spec.
    Input Voltage: 11~17v
    Circuit power: Max Charge: 50W / Max Discharge: 5W
    Charge Current Range: .1~5.0A
    Ni-MH/NiCd cells: 1~15
    Li-ion/Poly cells: 1~6
    Pb battery voltage: 2~20v
    Weight: 355g



    This charger has a JST-XH charge plug, which makes it compatible with Zippy, HXT,TURNIGY and any pack with a JST adapter.
    *This unit has the same functions (except PC-USB) and features as the iMAX B6, except that it comes with an internal cooling fan.


    Don\'\'t be divided from the truth by what you would like to believe.

    RE: PZ charger replacement

    Thanks for the replies. Is it worth the extra 10 bucks to go with the accucel 6?

    Yes it is. I also have the Accucel-6 and I love it.
    If it\'\'\'\'\'\'\'\'s not broke, fix it until it is

    bute56,

    If you are buying just one charger, then I would spend the extra money for the AC6 or something similar. If you are doing a lot of flying, charging a bunch of batteries at the field, I would buy 4 or 5 of the cheaper ones. I have 6 of them and two Triton2s. I use the Turngiys at the field all of the time.
