Where and when can those be purchased? 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.
I am told some native English speakers have helped clean it up a bit and it does show as it is a lot better than some manuals I have read eg. Mar 26, Basically you can use any power supply you want as long as its output voltage is 4. 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. 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.
Therefore I offer two quick start examples in order to demonstrate a typical usage.
The picture below and to the right shows what this looks like if you manyal wanted to view the six cell voltages in this pack. 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.

Complain wrong Brand wrong Model non readable. Mar 28, There is also a 9-pin plug to be used with the optional balance board. Another feature not seen in all chargers is a temperature probe that can be used to record pack temperature and even activate a safety shutdown if the pack gets to hot.
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. Pressing “Inc” or “Dec” button will then cause you to move up and down it note the blue text indicating this. In this mode, the charger acts as a convenient power supply for a hot wire foam cutter.
Connect the main charging port’s positive pole to cells’ positive pole, and then connect negative pole to cells’ negative pole this will avoid striking fire while connecting Li cells.
Remember Me Forgot Password? 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. Basically any cell combination of most any rechargeable chemistry with a termination voltage of 36 volts or less can be charged.
This is typically individual cell voltages, pack voltage, charge current, power, charge aka capacityand temperature.
A typical result is shown in the table below. Error messages If there is a problem during the charge an error message will be displayed. The iCharger has protection for reversed polarity input or outputlow input voltage, battery temperature, charging capacity and time overrun.
Gratitude to Julez and Kgfly for their hard working on upgrading instruction. 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. The B can also be set to limit the input current when using batteries or power supplies that cannot supply 25 amps. Notice that ichadger charger balanced to within 5mV, within its advertised limit. Lithium packs of cells can be charged in balanced or unbalanced mode.
It is a simple process: Last edited by junsi; Mar 21, at Posting Quick Reply – Please Wait. I ichwrger three of the TP kind and am a big fan of them as they have the bulit in ability to connect balance taps in parallel and serial.
The PC interface is simply a USB cable which at first glance appears icharget 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 manuzl track of it and only use it on the iCharger.
Start charging and discharging NiCd and NiMH packs of up to 25 cells and lead-acid of up to 18 cells can be charged in unbalanced mode. Notice that cell 4 was lost in the noise but now we can instantly see that it is bad and needs replaced.
