iMax B6AC charger

| | Comments (0)
I just bought a used iMax B6AC charger (LiPo/Li-Ion/NiMH) to complement my previous Turnigy Accucel-8 charger. I had trouble finding the user manual but finally located it. I'm posting a copy here just in case anyone wants it: And here's a little comparison table that I drew up comparing the iMax with the Turnigy units:
iMax B6ACAccucel-6 Accucel-8
Max Power50 watts50 W150 W
Max Current5.0A5.0A7.0A
Max LiPo Cells668
Max NiCD/NiMH Cells151527
Max Pb20v20v36v
Power Input100-240 VAC
11-18 VDC
10-18 VDC10-18 VDC
Interestingly, I found a way to calibrate the Accucel-6 on the HobbyCity website:
Hold on "ENTER" and "-" button at while powering on the charger. The charger display something like this : +00 VOL: x.xxV SAVE(ENTER) Then plug in a battery in the charging plug and you can see the voltage detected by the charger. Now you can adjust it by pressing + or - I just have to find a good voltmeter because i don't trust my voltmeter more than the accucel !
I'll have to give it a go. It should work on the iMax since they share the same software.
