iCharger B+, B+, B, B, B and B – RC Groups

Once you’ve got the data loaded into LogView you can save it to a file on your PC. The iCharger has protection for reversed polarity input or outputlow input voltage. Icharver View all Images in thread. Originally Posted by hall woo How Much? Basically you can use any power supply you want as long as its output voltage is 4. 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.

Depending on the preset being used the following may be displayed on the LCD screen while charging: See detail information about logview in the following website: Install the iCharger B USB driver directions for this located on the same page Run the upgrader program that came on the CD or website location given in the manual Connect the USB cable provided with 208bb charger Select the B in the device list Click the “Open” and select the new firmware file optionally follow the directions on how to download the firmware Click “Update Unique Lithium battery Monitor program.

Lithium packs of cells can be charged in balanced or unbalanced mode.

Chemistry and cell count Pack volts Charge current mAh charged into the battery or discharged Elapsed time Cell voltages Termination voltage Capacity safety cut-off point Safety timer cut-off point Temperature cut-off point Internal and external temperature Supply voltage Pressing “Start” will always cause the initial screen to display mahual contains the first five items that are listed above.

But once you start to connect an 8S LiPo ixharger your charger you may be startled by the loud pop and spark that result. Pages of the manual pages of the old version describe the basics in how to connect the B to LogView so I won’t repeat them here.


As before, the number in the parentheses is the percent error. Originally Posted by theShark if its W max does it really charge 10S at 10amp? Notice that the charger balanced to within 5mV, within its advertised limit.

The charger may say it just charged my cells to 3. This has not been without its drawbacks though 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.

Last edited by junsi; Mar 21, at Connection Sequence According to our engineer, the main charging port and the balance port has reversed polarity protection respectively. Pressing “Inc” will cycle through the cell voltages while pressing “Dec” will cycle through all the ocharger items listed.

Icharfer complaint I have is that if you have button beeps turned off you won’t get a beep acknowledging the cancel so you have to go off of the data displayed on the screen to verify that the charger halted the charge. It is a simple process: Pressing the “Enter” button causes you to move right again.

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. A typical result is shown in the table below. NiCd and NiMH packs of up to 25 cells and lead-acid of up to 18 cells can be charged in unbalanced mode.

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. 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.

This is typically individual cell voltages, pack voltage, charge current, power, charge aka capacityand temperature. The iCharger can not only measure the internal resistance of. 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. Where and when can those be purchased?

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.


iCharger B Charger Review

To help combat this spark and potential damage to connectors the B has a recommended order icharver making connections; it is: Also shown in the picture above is a 16 AWG output cable with banana plugs and a Deans style plug. The second example assumes the last battery charged is identical and all of the parameters are correct so nothing needs changed.

See details in Attachment. Posting Quick Reply – Please Wait. Prior to this the only other charger manufacturer that I knew of that openly listened to customer feedback was FMA.

Basically any cell combination of most any rechargeable chemistry with a termination voltage of 36 volts or less icnarger be charged. If the balancing connector has correct polarity, and then connect the main charging port, there is no problem; but if balancing connector has reversed polarity, and then connect the main charging port, it will burn. You’ll want to become familiar with the differences between the various LiPo charge modes as there are no less than 8 variations.

You can plot data from the B as it operates if plugged in via the USB cable or you can download saved data from the B flash memory.

Upgrading steps posted by Julez! Sep 05, I do like the white though. The B can also be set to limit the input current when using batteries or power supplies that cannot supply 25 amps. Return to Batteries and Chargers.

Once you’ve had a few moments to practice navigating it is really pretty simple to understand and get around. My compliments on the graphic design, more eye-catching than the plain blue of the original Chargery units. Since these additional measurements are error prone I use them as a basis for comparison only.
