FAQ is attached, pls check it when it is useful for you. 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.

For these examples assume that the charger settings are adequate and do not need adjusted. However, the B does not require the use of the balance tap icharegr can charge the full 20A in unbalanced mode which is no better than the chargers of old.

Once you’ve had a few moments to practice navigating it is really pretty simple to understand icharget get around.

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. For a novice this could be a dangerous combination, but an experienced power user may very well enjoy freedom from being dictated what constitutes “safe” by the manufacturer.

Notice that cell 4 was lost in the noise but now we can instantly see that it is bad and needs replaced.

As shown in the picture to the right, the following come in the box: After finishing charging and discharging, pls disconnect the cell and charger, and then turn off the charger’s power supply.

When you turn on the charger you are usually in a selection in one of the right four columns of the map shown below. Error messages If there is a problem during the charge an error message will be displayed.


Start charging and discharging The PC interface is simply a USB cable which at first glance appears to be a great idea as we all have tons of them around and won’t need to store yet another specialized cable, but it turns out that this is a somewhat special USB cable so you still need to keep track of it and only use it on the iCharger.

The back of the B circuit board.

Upgrading steps posted by Julez! Mar 27, 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 cablesparallel cablesand adapter cables. You’ll want to become familiar with the differences between the various LiPo charge modes as there are no less than 8 variations.

Looks and sounds like. The charger may say it just charged my cells to 3.

Not only save the power but also make the charger size very smart, easy to use and convenient to take. This can be very useful if you are trying to “zoom” in on an area of the graph. If you’re the mahual of person that likes to save all of the plots of each charge then this is an essential feature.

Last edited by junsi; Jun 18, at 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. Last edited by junsi; Mar 21, at Not only does it look extremely ixharger, it is nearly impossible to use like this so you’ll want to uncheck the boxes at the left to remove plots that you are not currently interested in viewing. I have also included a few measurements from my Watt’s Up meter as a point of comparison.

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. Support upgrading the hardware program by USB port. The B menus and manual layout echo many of the popular chargers so there is a good chance you may already be iharger with the layout and will quickly catch on.

The other four columns are all part of the secondary menu lcharger so you press “Inc” and “Dec” to move between. The iCharger B is designed and manufactured in China which in and of its self does not dictate a low quality product, but as will be shown later there is plenty of room for improvement.


The iCharger has protection for reversed polarity input or outputlow input voltage, battery temperature, charging capacity and time overrun. Connection Sequence According to our engineer, the main charging port and the balance port has reversed polarity protection respectively. 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.

The B is advertised to balance cells to within 10mV. To help combat this spark and potential damage to connectors the B has a recommended order of making connections; it is: 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.

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.

Depending on the preset being used the following may be displayed on the LCD screen while charging: Input leads, output leads, balance port adapters, temperature probe, PC interface and software etc? Even if you only save every 10th or 20th plot this gives you the ability to record that data while in the field.

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. 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.

The charge current is very icarger, even beating out the Watt’s Up meter.

In this mode, the charger acts as a convenient power supply for a hot wire foam cutter.
