  • Overview
Hitec X4-Eighty Four-Channel Multi-Charger

The X4-Eighty Multi-Charger features four identical and independent 80-watt power outputs for a total output of 320 Watts. Each microprocessor-controlled port is capable of charging all types of rechargeable batteries at up to 6 amps. Four individual balancing ports eliminate the need for a separate balancer when charging Lithium batteries. Equipped with a twin fan cooling system and an internal sensor for controlling fan speed, the X4-Eighty delivers the reliability and safety required to charge your LiPo, LiFe, LiIon, NiCd, NiMh or Lead Acid batteries. Its powerful capability combined with its reliable, safety functions make it the perfect choice for all electric and nitro modelers. Whether you are a weekend flier, an aerobatic master, a heli pilot or a mid-level to pro basher or racer, this is the charger for you.

SPECIAL FEATURES

Optimized Operating Software
The software in X4 Eighty automatically controls the current rate during the charging or discharging process. This feature can prevent the user from overcharging their batteries which could lead to damage or injury. If the charger detects a malfunction, the circuit automatically disconnects and an alarm will sound, The operating functions of the X4 Eighty are controlled through a two-way communication link in order to maintain maximum safety with minimal errors. All of these functions and settings are easily configured by the user.

Internal Independent Lithium Battery Balancers
Each channel of the X4 Eighty employs an individual-cell voltage balancer eliminating the need for an external balancer for balance charging.

Charges Most Popular Lithium Batteries
The X4 Eighty is compatible with the three most common Lithium chemistry batteries, Li-Ion, LiPo and LiFe

Multiple Lithium Battery Charge Modes
The X4 Eighty's programming allows for Fast Charge, Balance Charge or Storage Charge Modes for LiPo, Li-Ion, and LiFe batteries.

  • Fast Charge Mode: Reduces charging time, but does not balance the cells, this mode only charges the battery to approximately 90% capacity.
  • Balance Charge Mode: Monitors individual cell voltage, keeping the cells within an acceptable voltage range and charges the pack to peak capacity.
  • Storage Charge Mode: Used for long-term battery storage. Adjusts the voltage level so the battery will not be damaged during long term storage.

Delta Peak Technology for Maximum Safety
The automatic charge termination program utilizes Delta-Peak voltage detection. When the battery's voltage exceeds the threshold, the charge process is terminated automatically.

Automatic Charging Current Limit
The maximum charge rate can be manually set when charging NiCd or NiMH batteries. The X4 Eighty will auto-detect when the batteries are fully charged and shut off, even with low impedance NiMH packs.

Capacity and Processing Time Limit
The charging capacity is calculated as the charging current multiplied by time. If the charging capacity exceeds the maximum limit set by the user, the process will terminate automatically. Additionally the user can set the maximum amount of charging time. If the charging time exceeds this limit, the process will terminate automatically.

Temperature Threshold
The battery's internal chemical reaction causes the temperature of the battery to rise during the charging process. If the temperature exceeds the limit, the charging process will automatically terminate.
* This function is available by connecting an optional temperature probe, which is not included in our package.

5 User Customizable Presets Per Channel
The X4 Eighty features 5 individually customizable presets so the user can store the charge and discharge parameters for any particular battery type. These presets can be recalled for the desired battery type without the need for any additional programming.

Cyclic Charging / Discharging
Batteries can be set to automatically Charge/Discharge or Discharge/Charge up to a maximum of 5 cycles.

PC Based Analysis Using USB Communication*
The Hitec X4 Eighty offers a PC-based program which can analyze the characteristics of the battery via a USB port. It shows a graph of voltage, current and capacity curves. It also displays the individual voltage of each cell in the lithium battery pack.


* A PC-LINK USB adaptor can be purchased separately.

WARNING - Gasoline and Turbine powered R/C model aircraft are not manufactured to withstand unlimited G's. Any R/C model aircraft can fail, be it a wing folding up or a fuselage breaking in half under too high of a load. Just as any full size aircraft, model R/C aircraft have a maximum G rating. Because you are not in the plane flying it and experiencing the G's and reading the G-meter, it is more difficult to judge the G's on the aircraft, and it is very easy to exceed the limits of the aircraft. Understand that if you perform a snap roll, parachute, wall, blender, knife edge loop, or pull hard on the elevator at almost any speed, you can be putting in excess of 15 G's, even in excess of 30 G's, and most aircraft can only designed to take 10-12 G's. If you perform any violent maneuver, you can break your plane. When I perform hard maneuvers, especially for the first time on an airframe, I am prepared for a failure and am prepared for it as best I can be. This mainly includes performing the maneuver far enough away from spectators that in event of a failure that I am not endangering others. In addition, be prepared for the manufacturer to not pay for a new airframe which is broken during flight. It is common practice for any manufacturer to not replace an airframe which breaks in the air or upon landing. I have only seen manufacturers replace airframes when they have received many of the same failures and the manufacturer determines that there was a design or manufacturing error. If you break an airframe, and you are the only one to do so, then it is probably not the fault of the manufacturer. Please fly safely, and avoid full throttle operation other than at low airspeeds.

R/C model jets, warbirds, aerobatic planes, DJI S1000 Octocopter, and UAV Unmanned Aerial Vehicles to name a few are not a toy! If misused, it can cause serious bodily harm and property damage. Fly only in open areas, and AMA (Academy of Model Aeronautics) approved flying sites. Follow all manufacturer instructions included with your plane, radio, servo's, batteries and engine. Aircraft manufacturers guarantees each kit to be free from defects in both material and workmanship at the date of purchase. This warranty does not cover any component assembled by the customer. All parts of high stress must be inspected and reinforced if necessary by a competent builder. Some parts should be glued again. High stress areas such as firewalls, motor boxes, wing mounts, landing gear mounts, etc., are areas of high concern. Seek help if necessary. In not case shall TBM be liable for the cost of any product it offers which is not manufactured by TBM. The liability to the manufacturer cannot exceed the original cost of the purchased item. Further, TBM reserves the right to change or modify this warranty without notice. In that TBM has no control over the final assembly or materials used for final assembly, no liability shall be assumed nor accepted for any damage resulting from the use by the user of the final user-assembled product. By the act of using the user assembled product, the user accepts all resulting liability. The kit manufacturers have provided you with a top quality, thoroughly tested kit and instructions, but ultimately the quality and fly ability of your finished model depends on how you build it; therefore, we cannot in any way guarantee the performance of your completed model, and no representations are expressed or implied as to the performance or safety of your completed model. It is the user's responsibility to inspect each component for worthiness.
