Special Features

Optimized Operating Software:

The X1 "auto" function sets the charge and discharge current for you automatically, preventing overcharging which can damage your battery. In the event of an error, the X1 instantly disconnects the circuit and sounds an alarm once. This feature can be set by the user and controlled through the two-way link for maximum safety and minimizes these type of problems.

Internal Independent Lithium Battery Balancer:

The X1 features a built-in a cell voltage balancer so you don’t need to fuss with external balancers while charging.

Balancing Individual Cells Battery Discharging:

The X1 also monitors and balances each cell in the pack individually while discharging. If the voltage of any single cell is abnormal, the X1 will display an error message and the process will end automatically.

Adaptable To Various Types Of Lithium Batteries:

The X1 will charge and discharge a variety of Lithium batteries, such as Li-ion, LiPo and the new LiFe series of batteries.

Fast and Storage Mode Of Lithium Batteries:

The X1 features two styles of charging. "Fast" charge reduces the charge duration while "Store" controls the final voltage of your battery, to optimize your packs for long term storage and maximum lifespan.

Maximum Safety:

Our delta-peak voltage detection program ends the charge cycle whenever a battery's voltage exceeds the set threshold.

Automatic Charging Current Limit:

Charging current can set by the user when charging NiCd or NiMH batteries. The 'AUTO' charging mode, however, is recommended when charging NiMH batteries with low impedance and capacity.

Capacity and Temperature Limits:

The charge process will terminate if either the charging capacity or battery temperature exceeds the limit set by the user. Temperature function requires an optional temperature probe, which is not included with the X1.

Processing Time Limit:

Protect your battery by setting a maximum time limit for charging and discharging.

Input Power Monitoring:

The X1's input voltage is monitored to protect the battery from becoming damaged. The process ends automatically if it drops below the limit.

Data Store/Load:

A maximum of five setting profiles can be stored for your convenience. The X1 will store the data pertaining to a program's settings and you can call up data at anytime.

Cyclic Charging/Discharging:

A battery can be cycled 1 to 5 times. This process is good for refreshing and balancing your battery.

Fantastic Review by Slash 4x4
Great charger and easy to use. Love how small and compact it is. (Posted on 10/24/14)
Works well , instruction book poorly done !! Review by Charlie T.
No description of what buttons or combination of buttons to push to get programs to work . Found out how to turn unit on by accident . Am in process of writing my own addendum sheets to fill in blanks . (Posted on 2/10/13)
amazing Review by j-money
This is the best charger I have ever had. I have a zippy 3s 3000mah and it charges in about 25min. (Posted on 5/29/12)
Great value Review by Andy D
A nice little charger for the price, especially for having AC/ DC and 6S lipo charge. I've put it though many cycles out in the sun with no problems. The manual is not very clear and its not supremely easy to figure out on your own, but once you get it its actually very easy to set up for any kind of battery. (Posted on 3/15/12)
Charger maybe great, if I ever get it setup. Review by RC planes
I was told it is a great charger and manual is easy to understand. The manual is poorly written in my opinion. I want to fly my planes not learn about batteries. I have yet to see it work. If you have minimal experience setting up chargers, like I do, then take the instructions out and see if they make sense to you before you purchase the X! (Posted on 2/29/12)
