The USB connector is on the other end of the charger near the input cables. Depending on the preset being used the following may be displayed on the LCD screen while charging: The B manual states that it balances cells to within 10mV, but offers no other indication of how accurate it should be. As before, the number in the parentheses is the percent error. It is an inferior but less expensive solution to the problem. The picture below and to the right shows what this looks like if you just wanted to view the six cell voltages in this pack.

Canceling a charge If at any time you wish to cancel the charge simply press the “Stop” button. Depending on the preset being used junsii following may be displayed on the LCD screen while charging: The back of the B circuit board.
The users can transfer ixharger data to logview for analyzing and plotting when it is necessary. With the exception of the low indication of power and temperature junnsi results are very good. The charger may say it just charged my cells to 3. DC power input cables and USB connector.
Not to worry, there is a nice table that describes it all in detail. The B can also be set to limit the input current when using batteries or power supplies that cannot supply 25 amps. Notice that cell 4 was lost in the noise but now we can instantly see that it is bad and needs replaced.
The correct solution to 20b this loop is the use of opto-isolators, but the B breaks the loop by disconnecting the ground wire of the USB cable. Pressing ichargef or “Dec” button will then cause you to move up and down it note the blue text indicating this. 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.

Output banana jacks, temperature probe jacks, and balance port. When you turn on the charger you icyarger usually in a selection in one of the right four columns of the map shown below.
Each of those boxes in the right four columns is repeated in the following pages in the manual with directions on what can be changed and what effect it will have. 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.
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. The iCharger has protection for reversed polarity input or outputlow input voltage, battery temperature, charging capacity and time overrun.
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. Pressing “Inc” will cycle through the cell voltages while pressing “Dec” will cycle through all the other items listed. Some require the balance tap to be connected while in others it is optional. 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.
Basically you can use any power supply you want as long as its output voltage is 4.
As you ichatger see by the picture immediately below, the iCharger Junnsi is only slightly larger than the FMA Multi4 yet boasts seven times the power and twice the output cell count.
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. 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.
iCharger B Charger Review
This is typically individual cell icharged, pack voltage, charge current, power, charge aka capacityand temperature. But once you start to connect an 8S LiPo to your charger you may be startled by the loud pop and spark that result. To test this claim I charged a 3S LiPo pack in balance mode and measured the voltage shortly after the termination of the charge. Pressing the “Enter” button causes you to move right again. To help combat this spark and potential damage to connectors the B has a recommended order of making connections; it is: It is an inferior but less expensive solution to the problem.
The USB connector is on the other end of the charger near the input cables. The charge current is very accurate, even beating out the Watt’s Up meter.
