Tenergy TB6-B Balance charger discharger review
The Tenergy TB6 charger is one of the most popular chargers on the market its versatile range of battery’s it can charge makes ideal for any upgrades in power you may need in the future.
Before I start this review I want to talk about battery safety this is very important and should not in any circumstances be overlooked.
Before charging always inspect batteries for damage to the wires and the protective outer casing. Check for swelling of the battery pack.
DO NOT CHARGE if any of these faults are found.
Dispose of your batteries responsibly by taking them for recycling and do not throw them in the regular rubbish bins.
For LiPo batteries consider purchasing a charge safety bag.
