The Reedy 1216-C2 Dual AC/DC Competition Battery Charger features a high-performance microprocessor and specialized operating software that make it both versatile and easy to use. The 1216-C2 incorporates many advanced features, making it a great charging solution for casual hobbyists and hardcore racers alike.

Simultaneous charging of two LiPo/LiFe/LiIo/NiMH/NiCd/Pb batteries at up to 12A is possible thanks to a powerful integrated power supply. Storage of up to 10 different charge profiles (per channel) allows for easy access to your most commonly used settings. Terminal Voltage Control (TVC) gives racers an added option to regulate power output and calibrate voltage while 1S Balance Mode results in accurate voltage readings when charging 1S batteries. In addition to the list of powerful features, the 1216-C2 features an attractive exterior with a compact footprint and front-facing outputs to maximize pit space.

Charging Versatility
The 1216-C2 is capable of charging LiPo, LiFe, LiIo, NiMH, NiCd, and lead-acid (Pb) batteries.

10-Profile Memory
Save and recall up to 10 different charge/discharge profiles for your convenience.

Terminal Voltage Control (TVC)
Adjust the LiPo charge voltage between 4.00V and 4.23V per cell. Modified racers can take advantage of charging to a lower voltage while stock racers have the opportunity to fine tune their charge voltage to the maximum value allowed by race organizers.

1S Balance Mode
With an appropriate 1S balance charge lead, you can connect your 1S battery to your charger using the balance board. This method will allow the charger to read the battery's voltage more accurately, resulting a better quality charge and reduced charge times.

Lithium Battery Meter
View total voltage, individual cell voltages, and highest/lowest cell voltages to determine the battery's condition and state of charge.

Fast and Storage Modes
Alternate lithium charge modes add versatility to the charging process. Fast Charge mode reduces charge times by shortening the secondary charge process while Storage mode ensures that the battery's state of charge is at a level suitable for long-term storage.

Charge Time and Capacity Limits

To prevent overcharging due to a malfunctioning battery, the charging process will automatically stop if the charge time and/or the capacity limit exceeds the value determined by the user.

Reedy 1216-C2 Dual AC/DC Competition LiPo/NiMH Battery Charger (6S/12A/120Wx2)
I love this charger! works great, charges great and is a lot more compact than expected. In my opinion this is the best charger for the price, and have recommended it to many people.

However i do have a few minor complaints. The bigger of the 2 is the discharge rate. The charger rating states 5A discharge but on 2S batteries the highest i have ever seen is 1.3A. At this rate with a fully charged 7400MAH stick pack it takes about 2 hours to bring it down to storage voltage, and to make it worse the auto shut off timer is about 90 mins.Second is the audible tone volume is at an absolute minimum, and very rarely will you ever even hear it.

Hopefully with a software/firmware update this charger will be spot on and earn my 5 stars.)

Was actually leaning more towards the Orion charger, but saw this one, the deal and it was hard to pass up. Had the pulsar 3, which took over an hr to charge. This charger is amazing, easy to use and took only 15mins to charge a 5200 Lipo. Can either a power supply or the included plug to be ac/doc. I'm using the power supply option. Glad I made the choice I did and would recommend this to anyone. Very satisfied)

@mj MJ, The maximum charging rate is 12A, not 5A. You are thinking of the discharge rate at 5A.)

its working well, the female power plug in the charger seems a little loose with a wiggle so i just leave the power cord plugged in.. My buddy also bought the same charger, one of his charge ports stopped working)
