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. 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. These suggestions and bug reports have been accepted with amazing open mindedness by the manufacturer, including adding the foam cutting feature as suggested by one of the forum members. 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. 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.

To test this claim I charged a 3S LiPo pack in balance mode and measured the voltage shortly after the termination of the charge. Since these additional measurements are error prone I use them as a basis for comparison only. Prior to this the only other charger manufacturer that I knew of that openly listened to customer feedback was FMA.
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 which contains the first five items that are listed above. If you’re the kind of person that likes to save all of the plots of each charge then this is an essential feature.
The voltage range for cells are all shown and they can be scaled individually or as a group. 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.
Overall it works fairly well though and Junsi always has the final say on everything, as you would expect. It is a simple process: 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 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.
Before I show pictures of B charging plots displayed in LogView I should mention that while LogView has a English language setting, much of the German that the software writers use leaks through all over the place. The B menus and manual layout echo many of the popular chargers so there is a good chance you may already be familiar with the layout and will quickly catch on. The back of the B circuit board. The charger may say it just charged my cells to 3.

Depending on the preset being used the following may be displayed on the LCD screen while charging: 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. In the case that the message doesn’t help you find the cause of the problem it is useful for asking others what could cause that message to pop up or in determining if repairs need to junai made.
To help combat this spark and potential damage to connectors the B has a recommended order of making connections; it is: I have seen a laptop get fried by current through the ground wire of a USB cable so this is not an unnecessary precaution. However, the B does not require the use of the icharged tap and can charge the full 20A in unbalanced mode which ichqrger no better than the chargers of old.

See detail information about logview in the following website: My reference for checking voltage and current accuracy is a Fluke V which has a DC voltage base accuracy of 0. 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 users can transfer these data to logview for analyzing and plotting when it is necessary. 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.
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. Notice that cell 4 was lost in the noise but now we can instantly see that it is bad and needs replaced. This isn’t an advertisement for ProgressiveRC, but since my experience with the B includes my purchase and accessories available from that retailer I would be ichafger not to at least mention where I got everything shown.
My iCharger B was one of the earliest released so it has firmware version 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.
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.
Not to worry, there is a nice table that describes it all in detail.
