The HPI Reactor 500 can charge popular batteries like LiPo, Li-Ion, LiFe, NiMH, NiCd and Pb, making it perfect for RC cars, airplanes and boats. A microprocessor precisely delivers optimal charging, balancing, discharging, and prevents overcharging the batteries. Just plug it into the wall and it automatically senses AC voltage from 100V to 240V, and it can also be powered by a 12V auto battery. It's small and lightweight to save space on your pit bench and the rugged aluminum heatsink case makes it tough enough for travel. For accurate and safe charging, the HPI Reactor 500 charger is the way to go.
LiPo & Li-Ion Charger and Balancer
Safe charging of lithium polymer (LiPo) or Lithium-Ion (Li-Ion) batteries from 1S up to 6S. Maximum charge voltage of 4.2V/cell for LiPo, 4.1V/cell for Li-Ion; up to 1C fast charge per cell.
Charge the latest LiFe batteries (up to 6S) with complete confidence. Maximum charge voltage of 3.6V/cell up to 4C fast charge per cell.
NiMH & NiCd Battery Charging
Charge NiMH or NiCd cells at up to 5 amps for safe and fast charging, from 1 to 15 cells.
Pb Battery Charging
Pb (lead-acid) batteries from 2-20V can be easily charged fro engine starters, etc.
Discharge cells at a safe rate to maximize capacity and lengthen life. NiMH and NiCd discharging from 0.1 to 1 amp. Individual lithium battery cell discharging fro maximum safety.
Lithium Battery Balancing
The internal lithium battery balancer eliminates the need for a separate cell balancer, allowing you to balance your LiPo, Li-Ion or LiFe batteries at any time.
Choose this easy storage charge mode for confident long-term lithium battery storage.
Safety limits include: voltage, current, capacity, time and input power. Delta-peak sensitivity provides automatic cutoff when the battery reaches maximum capacity. Maximum charge time can be set. The microprocessor shuts off the charging and sounds an alarm if there is a malfunction.
Multiple Charging Profiles
Simplify charging by storing up to 5 different charging profiles. Handy for charging different types of car/plane batteries, transmitter packs, receiver packs and more.
Easy Cycling of Battery Packs
Revive battery packs for periodic maintenance or after a long storage period. The charger safely charges the battery to full capacity, then slowly discharges it to a safe level up to 5 times. Ideal if you don't use your batteries frequently.
