1216-C2 Dual AC/DC Competition LiPo/NiMH Battery Charger (6S/12A/120Wx2) by Reedy
This product was added to our catalog on February 8, 2016.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.
The 1216-C2 is capable of charging LiPo, LiFe, LiIo, NiMH, NiCd, and lead-acid (Pb) batteries.
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.

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.)
