Two independent outputs — identical features & functions! 

The Onyx 255 can peak charge a 15-cell NiCd at the same time it's balance charging a 6S LiPo—and do both anytime and anywhere there's AC or DC power. Push-buttons let you program up to 10 battery charging routines for easy reuse, and a reverse-backlit LCD lets you easily view eight types of pack/cell data and safety alerts even when lighting conditions are at their worst. And, since it's an Onyx charger, it also offers the extra value and long-lasting protection of an industry-leading 5-year limited manufacturer warranty. 



  • Each output charges single lithium cells, balance charges 2-6S lithium cells and peaks 1-15 NiCd/NiMH cells.
  • Convenient charge jack for 4-, 5- and 8-cell radio packs.
  • Simple, push-button setup with confirming visual and audio cues.
  • Safety timer and solid-state reverse polarity and current overload protection.
  • Memory for storing up to 10 battery charging routines per output - 20 in all.
  • Includes 110V AC lead, plus a DC power lead with alligator clips for easy connection to many 12V power sources.
  • Standard and Star Plug/T-Style adapters.
  • Built-in, 60W AC power supply for each output.
  • Charge rates of up to 6A for faster recharging
