Accu-Cycle Elite

Programmable Charger, Discharger and Analyzer for Radio System Batteries


As easy as you want — as versatile as you need!
Accu-Cycle Elite

It's more than the newest Accu-Cycle: it's the best thing to happen to radio batteries in years. It's so well designed that it practically guarantees that NiCd, NiMH — even Lithium-based packs — will receive a full, deep charge and a safe, accurate discharge. At the same time, the Accu-Cycle Elite offers users unprecedented freedom of choice. Modelers can enjoy perfect charging by letting the Auto Smart Set feature calculate many settings automatically, or by creating custom routines for up to 10 packs and storing them in memory.

Accu-Cycle Elite charging a received batter and a transmitter battery

A perfect match for radio batteries, but ideal for single glow-starter cells and lithium-type park flyer batteries, too.

Auto Smart Set feature

Enter the cell chemistry, voltage and capacity from the battery label, and the Auto Smart Set will automatically set the safety time-out period, charge current and discharge voltage cut-off for LiPo packs — and all three plus trickle charge rate for NiCd and NiMH packs!

Accu-Cycle Elite banana plugs and alligator plugs

Banana plug inputs connect directly to the AC power supply, or for at-the-field convenience to a 12V power panel's starter jacks or to the unique alligator clips which are included.

Accu-Cycle Elite readout examples

No mystery numbers or cryptic messages! The Elite's expanded text messages and labels spell everything out, from pack data to warning messages.
