The new HPI Reactor 500 battery charger can do it all, short of making you coffee. The Reactor 500 will charge popular batteries such as LiPo (1S to 6S), NiMH (1 to 15 cells), NiCd, Li-Ion, even the new LiFe batteries – making the HPI Reactor 500 a perfect battery charger for all types of R/C’s.
A microprocessor inside of the HPI Reactor 500 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 car battery.
The HPI Reactor 500 battery charger is small and lightweight to save space on your pit bench and the rugged aluminum heatsink case makes it tough enough for travel.
