Align Balance charger
Hi there

Can anybody tell me whether there is a problem using the Align balance charger, I have heard on the grapevine there is a problem with this charger.

The model I have got is the rcc 4cx and is cased in grey plastic, and has a cooling fan. The charger appears to work well but somewhere I heard that the charger will make my packs balloon.

Any help is great

i use the same charger and the first pack i charged on it did balloon, now since then i have had another 3 packs, 1 was the same as the first pack and 2 cheaper ones that came with the rex, the cheapies seem to be holding up well and both the more expensive ones have ballooned.

I wasnt aware of this problem but it sure explains what is happening, the first pack i had got discarded yesterday because out of maybe 20 charges it was only lasting 30-60 seconds in the rex, really disappointed as the pack cost me fifty quid or thereabouts

hope this helps, hopefully someone will give us another opinion

If it doesn't have NEW on the label it will charge cells up to 4.3V (sometimes more). I have used the OLD charger on 3 different packs (<12C) and none have balloned as a result (like your experience) with over 400+ charges between them.

Align released a statement when it brought out the NEW verison saying that higher C packs can be damaged by the OLD charger.

The NEW verison only charges up to 4.2V max.

Has anybody got a pic of the new label, then I can compare the labels with my charger ?

Thanks
