Friends! It has been too long since we have launched a new product, and we must admit, we are pretty charged up for this one. Introducing… the H6 PRO Battery Charger!
We’ve had lots of requests for a simpler, easier to use charger than our original Lithium Battery Charger. That charger, while powerful and full of features, can be a bit intimidating for less experienced users with its many menu options and auxiliary features. At the same time, many have grown to depend on some of the more advanced features of the old charger, like charging other battery chemistries, discharging, and checking internal resistance.
We decided to address everyone’s needs and have the best of both worlds in one product – the H6 PRO Lithium Battery charger is the perfect solution for everyone with a BlueROV2 or using our battery, no matter how many or few charger features are needed! And good news for our British mates, we will now be offering a UK plug alongside a North American/Japanese, European, and Australian/Chinese plug!
Locked by default to a 10A 4S charge cycle or storage mode perfect for use with our 18 Ah Lithium-ion battery, there’s no need to worry about scrolling through multiple menus or double-checking the manual to make sure it’s set up to properly charge. Just plug it in, select full charge or battery storage, and hit start! The battery will be perfectly charged to full or storage voltage in 1-2 hours.
Want more features or feel limited by the default setting? We’ve got that covered too, with a simple firmware update over USB, it’s easy to unlock the full capability of the H6 PRO Battery Charger! Charging multiple battery chemistries and cell counts up to 25.2 V, at up to 200 W on AC power or 700 W DC are a breeze. There are a multitude of additional features too, which are described in the full manual available for download on the product page, along with instructions on how to unlock the firmware.
The H6 PRO Lithium Battery Charger is a drop-in upgrade for the original version, no matter how it’s used. Our team has already started using the new version and they are totally amped on all the new features Stock of the old version will be available through our distributors until supplies run out!
