AC/DC Advanced Balancing Charger
Balances each cell for maximum voltage and longer life!
There are a lot of chargers out there. But there are few that offer modelers as much for as little as the Onyx 235.
There's peak charging for nickel-based packs…balanced charging for lithium packs…three output adapters…two balancing boards for 2S-6S packs…even a USB jack for charging personal electronics and a mini USB jack for downloading firmware updates. Versatile and value-packed: two great reasons to buy an Onyx 235.
- Balances and charges up to 4 LiPo, LiIon and LiFe cells — and peak charges up to 10 cell NiCd and NiMH cells.
- Charges all packs at up to 8A — and lithium packs at up to 4C!
- Includes the 5 output adapters drivers use most: standard, Traxxas® and Star Plug* connectors, plus JST XH and Thunder Power™ 6S balancing boards.
- Detachable AC and DC cords reduce tabletop clutter, but leave power options open.
- Balances lithium cells with +/- 5mV accuracy — maximizes the voltage charge of each cell and simultaneously conditions them for longer life and solid performance.
- Features push buttons and audible cues for simple setup — and 10 battery memories for instant recall and customized results.
- Protects packs with an automatic safety timer — and itself with reverse polarity and current overload circuitry.
- Built-in fan kicks in automatically, to keep heat down and performance high.
