You’ll want to become familiar with the differences between the various LiPo charge modes as there are no less than 8 variations. Since these additional measurements are error prone I use them as a basis for comparison only. Some don’t like how easy it is to bump this button and accidentally terminate the charge, but from a safety standpoint it is refreshingly quick and easy. In th, is mode, the charger acts as a convenient power supply for a hot wire foam cutter. A similar cable with a JST style plug is also available and if you order from ProgressiveRC you can choose from a large range of output cables , parallel cables , and adapter cables. Turnigy , but be prepared for some very unusual choices of words. Also shown in the picture above is a 16 AWG output cable with banana plugs and a Deans style plug.

Current drain for balancing: Depending on the preset being used the following may be displayed on the LCD screen ichagger charging: There is also a 9-pin plug to be used with the optional balance board. Having identical scales shown to the left and the right for each of the six cells is a bit annoying as you would probably never want to view them on different scales.

The B is advertised to balance cells to within 10mV.

Error messages If there is a problem during the charge an error message will be displayed. Over all I rate the manual a “B” as all the information seems to be there and is fairly understandable, but it still has room for improvement. As you can see by the picture immediately below, the iCharger B is only slightly larger than the FMA Multi4 yet boasts seven times the power and twice the output cell count. Connect the power source to the B and turn it on if applicable Connect the balance tap if applicable Connect the positive connector of the battery to the charger then the negative lead you can do this with the banana plugs Perform charge or discharge operation Disconnect balance tap and main lead from the battery then power down the charger Quick Start The B manual does not provide a “quick start” guide in the manual which often leaves new users asking the most basic question of how one goes about initiating a charge.


In th, is mode, the charger acts as a convenient power supply for a hot wire foam cutter. Pressing “Inc” will cycle through the cell voltages while pressing “Dec” will cycle through all the other items listed. All measurements were performed using a charge scenario chosen to minimize that rate of change of the parameter being measured.

If you don’t care to plot your data then you may very well not use any software unless you decided to update the firmware to get a new feature or bug fix such as the new regenerative discharge feature. It is a simple process: Prior to this the only other charger manufacturer that I knew of that openly listened to customer feedback was FMA. Overall it works fairly well though and Junsi always has the final say on everything, as you would expect.

As before, the number in the parentheses is the percent error. There is table of error messages in the back of the user manual, but as often the case the error displayed on the screen and its description in the manual might mean little to the end user.

iCharger B Charger Review

Some require the balance tap to be connected while in others it is optional. But once you start to connect an 8S LiPo to your charger you may be startled by the loud pop and spark that result.

ocharger See detail information about logview in the following website: This not only saves power and reduces heat build up but also makes the charger more compact and conveniently mobile. This has not been without its drawbacks ichrager as opinions vary on how the charger should behave so sometimes you get someone requesting a modification and someone else asking for it to not be changed.


The second example assumes the last battery charged is identical and all of the parameters are correct so nothing needs changed. Lithium packs of cells can be charged in balanced or unbalanced mode.

When you use other equipment to charge or discharge a Lithium pack, you can use the iCharger to monitor the per-cell voltages, battery temperature and process time. Below and on the left is the default view you’ll see when you load new data into LogView.

DC power input cables and USB connector. Note that the regenerative discharge feature is shown in this newer version of the manual even though it isn’t available in ifharger older firmware.

Connectors Power is supplied to the B via 14 AWG wire with banana plugs and removable battery clamps that are ideal for clipping onto a deep cycle lead-acid battery. Maximum discharge power capacity: The first example assumes that the last battery charged was not a LiPo icahrger none ujnsi the charge parameters are correct and they will all need changed.

I have seen a laptop get fried by current through the ground wire of a USB cable so this is not an unnecessary precaution. This is the drawback of having a generic plotting utility that does not know how the data is associated with each other.

Basically you can use any power supply you want as long as its output voltage is 4. Measuring power and charge with the Fluke V is not a direct process and requires the product of two measurements, voltage and current for power, and current and time for charge.

A typical result is shown in the table below.
