Concerned About Safety & Function of Unit Review by Zig

I am meticulous about the balance nature of charging LIPOs. Recently bought an Activator and have not been happy with it. For example, just charged a 3200 mAh E-Flite pack that is new and of course good quality. Haven't had any problems with it on other CHARGERS. It signaled that the pack was charged. When I checked it the cells were 4.08, 4.12, and 4.07. NOT GOOD. I have used it for different capacities of 3 cell LIPOs's from 1500 - 3300 mAh. Seems slow in that it takes hours, and I mean hours, to charge batteries. It also has intermittently declared an error when everything was okay. I don't abuse my LIPOs's and I buy good quality LIPOs's. Not comfortable with this one. (Posted on 2/15/14)
Wow! Convenient & Easy! Review by kyle

Used to a 4hr charge and having to feel the battery. The Activator allows you to press a button and will inform you when complete! This is a huge step up from the ac adapter that the Traxxas came with! Worth it! (Posted on 2/5/14)

Works for me Review by Jason

I'm brand new to this hobby. This charger charged my two Ni-MH, 2100 mAh, 7.2 V, 6 cell battery packs in 50 minutes each. I wasn't sure how long it should take so I did some research and found a formula which estimated the time it should take at 66 minutes.

I left the charger running in my garage and checked back on it every 10 minutes or so. The battery and charger gradually got hot but not hotter than I read it should get. I was able to hold my hand on it the battery for several seconds and, while it was pretty hot, it wasn't so hot that it burned. I don't have a temp gun, so I wasn't able to measure it.

With the first battery pack, on one of the return trips to the garage, a total of 55 minutes had passed and the green indicator light was on indicating that the battery was fully charged.

With the second battery pack, I returned to the garage after about 40 minutes and stayed close so I could hear the beeping when the green light came on.

I think it worked fine. The only thing I wish it had was adjustable charge rate. (Posted on 12/24/13)
Would not Buy, poor quality Review by ji

Ji, please return charger to store so we can research. Thank you. Matt

NOT worth a star. NOT so good,

Bought the charger for my son (9yo) Liked the one button idea for his car charging needs.

Plugged it into a wall outlet. After about 20 mins started noticing that warm / hot electronics odor coming from it. Touched it, okay it seams to be too hot. Let it go another 10 mins. Yep smells pretty bad like its way too hot. Went to get my thermal temp gun. Now about 40 mins into the charge, it is almost too hot to touch and the thermal Temp gun is showing over 200 degrees...... Waste of $50. No charger should operate at that temp. around lipos. Typical HP quality. The Harbor Freight of the RC world. Maybe I got a bum one, but my house and my safety is worth a charger that does NOT bear the Global Distributors Hobby People name.

NOT RECOMMENDED. SAVE your money, gas, and time. (Posted on 11/26/13)
