THE ONE TO BUY! – $60 ToolKitRC M6D Dual Port Charger – FULL REVIEW & COMPARISON
This is the m6d. This is the one you should buy. Why is it the one? You should buy? Well, it's, dual port. It has two XD 60 inputs here, it's 500 watt, it's 30 amp. You can dual charge on it. You can synchronous charge just like on the p30. I showed you guys the p30 last week on the channel and it's kind of like the the mega mega charger. If you want don't mind spending a little bit of extra money, but you want something: dual port with magnesium alloy metal casing around it. It'S super nice, very, very nice charger. I think that the wheel and the navigation on this one is a little bit easier, but this one's half the price and it's also less than half the way this one's around 300 grams. The p30 is around seven hundred and twenty five grams. I believe that one's around 1500 watt and it also charges around 60 amp continuous parallel charging, synchronous, charging or it'll do 30 amp on each side. Well, this one will do 30, amp total either a 15 amp on each side or 30 amp total. If your synchronous parallel charging right here, so you have to tell this one in the interface that you're going to do some sync charging with both ports, but once you do that you can also do parallel charging with this charger. Now it also has a built in fan on the side and this side it has honeycomb venting as well.
It has a jog wheel for the display moving around on this little believe it's around a 2.5 inch screen. It is an LCD screen, but what I like about this one also is the fact that known as a jog wheel, pretty intuitive – it has a push button here as well, and it has an exit button on the very top. I, like that extra button on there it's, really pretty slick and it's it's, really easy to use, but either way you want to charge with this one. You can take this one out in the field you can charge with an external battery. This can be your main battery source. If you're charging some smaller batteries, you can do from 2 to 6s on this charger. If you use a breakout board on here from one of either one of these ports, you can also charge a 1s battery, so your pH 2.0 batteries can also be charged on here. It also has rubber feet on the bottom, and you'll also have the option to charge from a DC adapter, so you can get the xt60 DC adapter plug it into the wall and then you've got a bench charger as well. So I think this one is a great price, it's half the weight, and it still does most of the things that the larger is DT. P 30 does let's, go ahead and put this on the bench now and let me show you some examples of how to set it up, how to get it charging and some of the cool presets that they have inside this charger.
Here we go. So let me just walk you through a simple charge process with this charger. It is pretty simple, like I said before, you can choose two different types of power options on the very back you can plug in a lipo to it up to about a 6s lipo. It has a voltage range from 7 to 28 volt here for this power input, and I like that, it's on the back, not on the side confusing the user, which is pretty intuitive you're, not gon na mess this up and plug in your power supply over here. But you can go ahead and plug in a lipo. A my go to lipo is usually like a 3s 5000 for a lot of my general charging, and now you can see the interface here loads up pretty quick and we're. Just gon na get that in focus for you, so you can see that there now we have 2 sides here and the way to navigate both sides. Channel 1 channel 2 is to simply select this button right here. You can see it highlights blue. If I press it again, it goes back to orange on that side, so meaning that port is active and I'm going to go ahead and take a battery plug in the battery on this side. This is a 4s 1300 from rdq, so my black wire is gon na, go all the way on the outside there, and this will charge up to a 6 s battery and now I can go ahead and tap once and it puts me into the battery selection Menu – and the neat thing about this – is that I have another preset made down here for a 3s lipo that I have sitting to the side over here and when we do that, it will save this preset on Bo channels, which is pretty cool so I'm, ready To go to set up another battery on this side once I get this one going so we're gon na go ahead and go into here, and I have it set to auto, which is really nice.
So, whatever battery I plug in here, it's gon na auto, detect the cell count and it's gon na give me sort of a charged current and normally I start out with around 1.3 M. This is a little larger battery than the 3 s 450, so I'm gon na put this at 1.5 amp. If you charge at that rate a lot of year for us 1300s will last you five years or more. I swear to god. This is the way I've been doing it for a long time, so you also have the option to change it from the battery type up top lipo that's, the high voltage lipo. We have la fe ly on batteries, which is awesome. Nickel, metal, PV power and UAV bet we're gon na go back up here to lipo, because this is a standard lipo, not an hv one I'm gon na go down to mode here and I can charge this charge or storage charge press the exit button again super Easy to use, which I love now the charge current seems to have jumped a to amp we're gon na break that back down to about 1.5 here and when we're ready. We just scroll down here, and you see channel 1 here and let me show you a trick if you press on that button right there that will, if you press and hold it, it should change it from there we go. You can go back and forth to see that, so, if you want to make some quick changes on the fly or go all the way over to make this synchronize charging parallel charging, you can go to dual, which is also really cool.
So I'm gon na go back to channel 1 and then I'm going to scroll over to the start button. You can see it's sort of kind of slightly highlight there hit start, and now we hit OK, it's gon na charge. Up to sixteen point, eight volt that's. What I want and now it's charging, so you can also use the jog wheel at this point to see more information on the battery right. Now you see the status is charging lipo, 4s it's gon na charge at point. One point five amp and you can see up here: it is doing that it's a time elapsed, how much we're putting into the battery and the current voltage up at the top. Also, my source battery voltage is not super high right now, so you don't want to run that down too much before you recharge it and we have the 2.1 amp there, the actual charger in Celsius so we're gon na. Maybe hopefully we can change that to Fahrenheit and now we're going to can also change the current on the fly, which is cool. So, if want to speed that up or I want to slow it down, you can do that and we're gon na stop right now and actually let's. Just so let's go ahead and set that other battery up real, quick and just for fun, I'm gon na leave that other one charging. Okay, all the way back down now, all the way over to start and okay, so yeah let's leave that one going, and I have an adapter here for this one, because this one has an XT 30 and if you have an XT 30, you need to have Some type of adapter to xt60 here to fit this port and just like that and now I'm gon na plug in my negative side over here.
My ground side just make sure that's plugged in like that. If you make a mistake, it'll, let you know, and now we have the voltage on that battery, so I'm gon na go ahead and select the other side there. Now it's blue, highlighted in blue, go ahead and click on that, and I already have that preset ready for that battery and I'm gon na charge it at 0.8. We can all go all the way down and now we're going so made a balanced port error there. So let's look at this again the negative sides on that side. I remember how I told you guys it would tell you that was an example. So it will tell you if you have your balance port plugged in wrong now we'll go back down to that. Let'S. Go all the way down to start, and what what I like about this charger is is that this touch wheel is not super sensitive I'm, just going kind of fast there to get this going for you, so you can see both sides in action at and there It is guys pretty simple to use very simple interface and really quite into it. If I love it really awesome so let's go ahead and get some final thoughts guys on this m6d. Alright guys welcome back from that quick overview. You can do a lot more with this charger, but I wanted to kind of keep this brief. So I don't keep you here forever it's showing you charge are details, but honestly again, this is the one that is probably the best price right now for around.
They get sixty to sixty four dollars for something that can charge on the fly out in the field with dual ports, pretty much all the bells and whistles that you can possibly want. So the m6d, in my opinion, is like a giant home run from toolkit RC and I, I think, it's one of the less talked about Chargers so I'm happy to be able to show you guys this charger on the channel today, because it is a game changer. As far as price and economy, value and it's it's, definitely one that you, you want to pick up and just just buy if you're, if you're new to the Hobby or you're somebody that's on a budget or if you just don't, want to spend 200 on a Charger you don't have to these days and that's what's awesome about it. So charges many batteries as you want at once with this charger and take it anywhere. You go it's awesome and I highly recommend this one guys. You can pick this one up at the link down below and I will get a kickback they'll be awesome thanks for helping me on the channel. As always, the new review, the m60 buy toolkit RC I'm Justin Davis, guys take care and I'll see you on the next one. Please subscribe. Please subscribe.
