Solar & Wind EBooks

This is the IMAX B6AC,, or it is a cheap Chinese copy of it. this Multi function Charger can Charges, fast charges, balance, store and discharges batteries.
This charger is really good for charging and balancing a battery pack for RC playens/cars ect. up to 6 cells in series.

IMAX B6 is the new intelligent multifunction charger which can charge and discharge for Lion, LiPo, LiFe (A123), Pb, NiCd and NiMH batteries. It’s all-powerful in a way.
My PlayHouse is a channel where i will show, what i am working on. I have this house, it is 168 Square Meters / 1808.3ft² and it is full, of half-finished projects.

I love working with heating, insulation, Servers, computers, Datacenter, green power, alternative energy, solar, wind and more. It all costs, but I’m trying to get the most out of my money, and my time.

    Morten, I would recomend you calibrate the voltage on that Chinese version of the Imax, with an accurate voltmeter. calibration mode is: dec+start and hold for five 5sec after you plug in the power to the Imax. this will allow you to set a compensation in the unit to match the voltage in a battery that you have measured with the accurate voltmeter.

    That charger is when I fly an RC plane that was used . Remember that we used a very long time without failure .

  3. X-BASS says:

    Nice vid as always, 🙂

    Morten, could you recommend any charger/discharger for regular AA/AAA batteries? I'm in Spain so I cannot import from the USA nice online shops, which have a great amount of good brands at low prices, thank you for your work!!

  4. Roman says:

    Nice. I'm gona get me one of those.

  5. I love my imax, I just bought a power supply for mine to charge better. Nice review!

  6. Essa Dakkam says:

    I didn't find the price on the link. how did it cost you? thnx.

  7. SED71 says:

    I have a cheap Chinese copy also. mine is 2 years old and i use it all the time and it still goes well. it cost me 20 dollars. as i am an enthusiast about Radio controlled cars such as you mentioned i use this heavily and rely on it. great little gadget.
    Note; the little red connectors with the two pins are called "Deans" connectors. they can carry lots of current. I think they can do 80A constant. the little black connector with the silver tip is for charging "glow plug ignitors". a quick search on the internet will tell you more information. 🙂

  8. You can't discharge a LiPo battery under the 3 Volts, because it is gonna start a fire if they do or also explode…

  9. u know everything we have is from china(%90) 😂😂hahhhah

  10. Jeff Barton says:

    Thanks for the video it convinced me to buy one. It might be cheap and chinese but still better than my old even cheaper chinese charger. Fyi in lipo mode it wont discharge lower than 3v as it is dangerous to battery life AND YOU because lipos can explode ir catch fire below 3v

  11. Hello, does anyone figured out how to charge 18650 to 4.30V ? Chargemaster only reach 4.20. You cannot create a charging program with more than 4.20. Some 18650 wants 4.30 to be charged to max capacity.

  12. Reese Me says:

    i got the non AC version one.
    the problem with clones is the accuracy of the voltage reading, mine is off by over 0.2V which is a big deal for li-ion & lipo.
    there are forum where people trying to recalibrate the clone endup killing the charger and the really expensive lipo.
    i endup getting the genuine skyrc one which cost almost twice but its worth it in long run.

  13. DON'T BUY THIS. I got two and there were many-many problem with this. None of them is working after a year. Buy something better if you can…

  14. danio8522 says:

    Can I set the end of charging at 4 V per cell (Li-ion) ?

  15. Ralph Latham says:

    They are great – until they aren't. But I would buy another one. (Will, infact:)

  16. I bought one for less than a tenner and its working great for months now!
    I just used a cheap psu from my historic collection box of psu adaptors – being an IT contractor does have its uses – Not many but some!

    Good explanatory video with good presentation Mr Playhouse!

  17. Info you says:

    thanks ya very helpfull

  18. Yonahful says:

    The "original" Imax designed "made in germany", or what..? However, "fake" vs. original does the same work. Since nine years i'm use the "fake". (ist das gleiche Design, ihr Schwachköpfe)

  19. Johan Wagho says:

    Hello mister Hjorth, I have started to gather all information I would need to try and build my own batterypack for my Italian style electrical scooter (Brandname: Ebretti).

    And now I need, just like you a 48 volt pack.
    I've read that one needs to multiply the voltage of each cell so I started to count the ones in your string, wich looks like 16 cells but when I make the sum : 16×3,7v I get 59,2v coult you tell me why this is. like I wrote I just started with this an I,m thankfull for all info.

    Tanx, Johan.

  20. Matt Jones says:

    Does this thing work or not? I cannot get a definitive answer!

  21. Brix Chua says:

    i have a question. is it possible to replace motor cycle 12v lead acid battery to 6 pcs. or more of 18650 battery? i mean series connection of 2 sets of 3 batteries and parallel them? is it possible and safe??? thanks for your answer

  22. great video! really funny stuff man.
