iCharger 208B Balance Charger
iCharger 208B is our mid level battery charger and conditioner. Outputting 20amp and 350 (true) watts. Charging 1-8 cell lithium batteries (lip, Life etc), 1-25 cell NiMh and NiCD and 2-36v Lead Acid Batteries.
Features At A Glance:
Built In Resistance Meter: Determines which battery pack is the best, on its last legs etc.
PC USB Connectivity: Works with PC to plot discharge & charge curves. This allows very accurate analysis of battery power, voltage, condition and more.
Firmware Upgradable: All iChargers are firmware upgradable.
Far Better Accuracy: No more frustration with your charger giving you one reading and your battery pack doing something else.
On The Fly Parameter Settings: Change charge current, end voltage and safety cut-offs during a cycle. No more stopping and starting a cycle to make changes.
10 Memories: Store ALL settings for a battery. Memories can carry long names.
Monitor Function: Monitoring your batteries (from balance port) while in use or during its application. Useful to analyse the true power of the battery, running time, discharge graphs and much more!
Efficiency: iChargers have been proven to have 90% efficiency. Greater efficiency means more power for charging and no need for large heatsinks.
Noise: Built in fan only comes on when absolutely necessary and based on user set internal temperature settings.
Size: Smallest sized DC battery charger in comparison to its power rating.
Faster Charge Time: The more power (watts) a charger has, the more power it can supply to the battery. This charges the battery faster, also allowing for advanced charging techniques, such as parallel charging.
Regenerative Discharge: During a discharge cycle the charger will send the wasted energy back to the power source and charge this at the same time! The power source needs to be rechargeable, such as a 12v automotive battery. During regenerative discharge mode, the charger can discharge a battery at the chargers maximum discharge amps and watt rating.
All iChargers are DC powered chargers. For best options on powering the iCharger, please check our Bench Top Power Supplies.
