Default opinion on 16x8v6

I have 1 and here is my opinion of it: It charges and discharges well, does lipos, and also has motor break in. It would be a complete charger but for a couple of misses:
1) the stock fans are LOUD
2) no battery memories, so if you have different types of packs, you have to constantly reset the charge settings
3) you have to get the 6.2 update, or you will have low voltage errors
4) the cost is too high if bought at retail

If you can buy one used at a good price, I think it will serve you well.

My 2 cents, with change coming back.

Default 6.2

Make sure it has the 6.2 upgrade and it should work fine it does.

It has charged my 4200 pretty well.

I had problems with the Low voltage error when i was running version 6.0 and 6.1 but all good now.

switching charge settings does take a little getting use to but it becomes second nature after a few weekends.

i do like the step charging with the seperate temperature monitoring per step very nice touch.
