NiMH Delta-peak voltage sensitivity 5 to 20mV

Battery temperature cut-off 20 to 80C or OFF

Waste time between charge/discharge 1 to 60 min.

Trickle charge mode ON/OFF, up to 200mA

Integral timer limit for safety 10 to 720 min.or OFF

Maximum charging capacity limit for safety 10 to 9990mAh or OFF

Key beep and buzzer sound ON/OFF

Input power low alert 10 to 11V

High-power and high-performance circuit
The smart charger employs a circuit that has maximum output power of 50W. As a result, the smart charger can charge or discharge up to 15 cells of NiCd/NiMH and 6 series of Lithium batteries with maximum current of 5.0A.

Individual voltage balancer for Lithium batteries inside
Built into the smart charger is an individual-cell-voltage balancer. No external balancer is needed when charging Lithium batteries (LiIo/LiPo/LiFe) for balance charging.

Balance individual cells on discharge
The smart charger also can monitor and balance individual cells of the Lithium battery pack during the discharge process, as well as the charge process. If the voltage of any one cell varies abnormally, the process will be stopped with the error message.

Accept various types of Lithium battery
The smart charger can accept three types of Lithium batteries - LiIo, LiPo and LiFe. They have different characteristics by their chemistry, such as minimum, maximum, and charge termination voltages.

Lithium battery Fast and Storage mode
The smart charger offers additional Lithium programming. Fast charge reduces the charging time of the Lithium battery and the Storage mode controls the final voltage of the battery to be suit for long time storage.

Data store/load
5 data of different batteries programs can be stored and retrieved. These data files can be receptive at any time you need them without reprogramming.

Cyclic charging/discharging
The smart charger can perform 1 to 5 cycles of charge>discharge or discharge>charge for battery break in/refreshing and balancing.

PC based analysis using USB communication
For the advanced user, the smart charger INCLUDES a PC based program that can analyze the characteristic of the battery through the computers USB port. The software will graph voltage, current, capacity and temperature curves. It also shows the individual voltages of each cell in the Lithium battery pack.

Back-light LCD screen
Include LCD display

Robust outer aluminum case
High-quality aluminum case is durable and very efficient to cool out the internal heat

Advanced temperature sensor cable port (sensor cable included)
An optional temperature probe contacting the surface of the battery to monitor the battery temperature during charging can be used

This unit comes with cables shown as well as CD & Manual




Retails Price US$59.99

Looks like a GREAT charger at an AMAZING price... The only negative thing that I see with the charger is that the discharge rate is a little low, but at this price point, that is easily overlooked. I think this will be seen in many pitboxes in the next few months... I love the USB interface, I feel that is a big selling point. But the low discharge rate, makes it harder to compare batteries. A 3A discharge would have been ideal.

I use this charger past couple time PNWC regional race, I run TRP 900 battery charging at 2.5AMP, Delta-peak voltage sensitivity 5mv, with PN charger tray, I can charge my TRP 900 every time over 850mah, and my power really good and good run time too.

- Operating software
Every operating program in the unit is controlled with mutual links and communications to prevent every possible error, so it introduces the maximum safety, such as input voltage warning, reverse polarity protection and Lithium cell-count input error warning.

- Individual voltage balancer for Lithium batteries
S6 Charger has an individual cell voltage balancer inside. So it does not need any balancer separately when charging Lithium batteries (LiIo/LiPo/LiFe) for voltage balancing.

- Accept various types of Lithium battery
S6 Charger can accept three types of Lithium batteries - LiIo, LiPo and LiFe. They have different characteristics by their chemistry. You can select any one of them that you are going to process before the job. For their specifications, refer 'Warnings and safety notes' section.

- Lithium battery 'Fast' and 'Storage' mode
You can charge Lithium battery for special purposes. 'Fast' charge reduces the charging time of Lithium battery and 'Storage' mode controls the final voltage of the battery to be suit for long time storage.

- Maximum safety
Delta-peak sensitivity : The automatic charge termination program works on the principle of the Delta-peak voltage detection. (NiCd/NiMH)

Auto-charge current limit : When charging NiCd or NiMH at 'AUTO' current mode, you can set the upper limit of charge current to avoid from feeding high current to the battery. This is very useful when charging the low impedance and small capacity NiMH battery in 'AUTO' mode.

Capacity limit : The charging capacity always calculated by multiple of the charging current and time. If the charging capacity exceeds the limit the process will be terminated automatically when you set the maximum value.

- Data store/load
For users convenience it can store maximum 5 data of different batteries. You can establish the data contains program setting of the battery to charge or discharge continually. These data can be called out at any time you need and the process can be executed without program setting.

- Cyclic charging/discharging
Perform 1 to 5 cycles of charge>discharge or discharge>charge continually for battery refreshing and balancing.

- PC based analysis using USB communication
For technical expert, S6 Charger offers PC based program can analysis the characteristic of the battery by USB port. It shows a graph of voltage, current, capacity and temperature curves. It also shows the individual voltage of each cell in the Lithium battery pack.

- Robust outer aluminum case
High-quality aluminum case is durable and very efficient to cool out the internal heat
