I think the 1010C and 210 balancer would be a better option.

It states it only does 1 to 6 cells. You want to charge 7 cells! It will limit your options for your trex600 if you ever want to increase the voltage beyond 6s lipo or go to 10s1p a123.

EDIT: It states 10 amps but it is limited to 80watts total. This will remove the big advantage of A123 i.e fast charge time.

If it can do 7cells a123 then:

7cells A123 = 25.55 volts

watts = volts X amps

80/25.55= 3.13amps charge current.

7s2p = 4600mAh so 4.6 amps charge current will take 1 hour (1C). 3.13 amps will take 88 minutes or so to charge your pack!

I think that maths is correct.

Sorry I was editing my post as you replied to it. With the built in balancer I doubt it will acept a 6s lipo setting as the balance lead will show 7 cells to the charger.

it can do 6 cells lipo and 6 cells A123 so I can charge it as 7 cells A123 in 6 cells lipo settings , but my question is : since its built in balancer , can I adjust the cells number manually ??

Firstly, I have not used this charger. But your balance lead for the A123 cells will have eight active wires (1 negative and seven positive) the balancer reads the voltage of each cell by measuring the voltage across each positive wire to the negative. the first red wire will read voltage of cell1 the second cell1 + cell2 etc it can then compare these values to measure the voltage of each cell. The advantage of the balancer communicating with the charger is it prevents any cell being overcharged.

If you use a 6s lipo setting then the charger will 'see' seven cells and likely give an incorrect cell count error if you try to charge at 6s.

no problem Digikas. I really don't think it is powerfull enough at 80watts even if it could do 7cells A123. It would just take too long to charge them.
