Do not use a standard USB cable with the B.
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. If you’re the kind of person that likes to save all of the plots of each charge then this is an essential feature. And here is Trug ‘s blog: When you use other equipment to charge or discharge a.
My iCharger B was one of the earliest released so it has firmware version 3. See detail information about logview in the following website: The voltage range for cells are all shown and they can be ichargee individually or as a group. Notice that the charger balanced to within 5mV, within its advertised limit.

Other features The B has built in 16Mbit flash memory that can be used to record charging data while away from a PC at the field then downloaded later when at home. Mar 27, Note that the regenerative discharge feature is shown in this newer version of the manual even though it isn’t available in my older firmware. Lithium pack, you can use the iCharger to monitor the per-cell voltages, battery temperature and process time. The B manual states that it balances cells to within 10mV, but offers no other indication of how accurate it should be.
For me this was my first charger with this kind of menu so I had to refer to the manual a lot and I felt like the information was very disconnected and I would often have to reference 2 or 3 sections of the manual just to figure out how to change a specific setting. Below and on the left is the default view you’ll see when you load new data into LogView.
If there is a way to combine then to a single scale I don’t know how and don’t believe there is a way to do so. All measurements were performed using a charge scenario chosen to minimize that rate of change of the parameter being measured.
I’d hate to support two languages in my software so I don’t begrudge the software authors, but make sure you know how to find the meaning of words like “Ja”, “Nein”, and “Abbrechen” as you won’t get very far into using LogView before encountering them. For this review I will be using version 3. The firmware updating utility is created and maintained by Junsi, but for plotting the data they use a third party application called LogView that is free to use.
Looks like it limits LIPO up to 1C although it certainly appears to have the power to charge many packs at a much higher rate.
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.
The charger may say it just charged my cells to 3. Overall it works fairly well though and Junsi always has the final say on everything, as you would expect. If any individual cell appears over-charged or over-discharged or the pack is too hot or the process has gone on for too long, the iCharger will generate an alarm sound and the related information will blink.
If the balance tap is required to be connected then the balancer is active while in the other modes the balancer is not active and connecting the balance tap simply allows you to monitor cell voltages.
ProgressiveRC 208B iCharger User Manual
Connect iCharger’s input power supply, and turn on it. The following lists are their main specifications: Firmware updates The manual includes a set of directions on updating the firmware on page 29 or page 28 in older versions of the manual.
Images View all Images in thread. Each of those boxes in the right four columns is repeated in the following pages 20b8 the manual with directions on what can be changed and what ichargre it will have. Even if your power supply would normally require you to limit the B input current or set an input watt limit we can safely ignore that for now simply by choosing a very low charge current that won’t stress the power source.
Return to Batteries and Chargers. But once you start to connect an 8S LiPo to your charger you may be startled by the loud pop and spark that result.

The B has access to several safety features but does not always enforce them, so you’ve got plenty of rope to hang yourself with it if you so choose.
You’ll want to become familiar with the differences between the various LiPo charge modes as there are no less than 8 variations.
The only major addition since 3. The iCharger brand of chargers by Junsi aka HillRC is a relatively new kid on the block that has been getting a lot of attention for their high powered chargers combined with a small physical size and aggressive pricing. The USB connector is on the other end of the charger near the input cables. I do manua, the white though.
Icharger B Manuals
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.
The second example assumes the last battery charged is mwnual and all of the parameters are correct so nothing needs changed. The charge current is very accurate, even beating out the Watt’s Up meter. Posting Quick Reply – Please Wait. I am told some native English speakers have helped clean it up a bit and it does show as it is a lot better than some manuals I 208v read eg.
NiCd ocharger NiMH packs of up to 25 cells and lead-acid of up to 18 cells can be charged in unbalanced mode. The battery pack to be charged is connected via 16 AWG output cables with banana plugs on one end and little alligator clips on the other.
Graphing The Logview software enables plotting various information depending on the charge type.
