iCharger 306B Synchronous Balance Charger/Discharger IC306B
The 306B charger is designed for charging 1S-6S packs up to a 30 amp charge rate, while also giving you useful tools such as measuring the internal resistance of your batteries, or safely and easily discharging packs for storage. With a JST-XH & ThunderPower balance board thrown in for free, you're ready for just about anything.
- iCharger 306B is rated at 1000w and 30amps. Capable of charging up to 6 cell lithium batteries, 25 cell NiMh/NiCd batteries, and 2-36v lead acid automotive or marine batteries.
- With its rated 1000w of power and proven 90% efficiency, iCharger 306B will deliver true 30 amps in a charge cycle, regardless of the size of the battery (or batteries) being charged.
- iCharger 306B is also the smallest 30 amp 1000 watt charger available today.
iCharger 306B is designed with safety as the number one priority. Numerous cutoff and safety features are offered to the user:
- Capacity Cut Off – User can set a capacity limit for a charge cycle. The charger will stop once this limit is reached, avoiding overcharging of a battery. This is particularly useful for batteries that don't display normal characteristics during normal use or charge, normally as a result of poor quality or previous damage.
iCharger 306B can charge any type of battery chemistry. Including all popular Lithium battery chemistries (Lipo, LiFe, LiLo), Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMh), Nickel Cadmium (NiCd), Sealed Lead Acid, Deep Cycle Lead Acid, Starter Lead Acid batteries and much more.
Balance Charge Options
The iCharger 306B has a built in integrated cell balancer and can be used with three types of lithium batteries (LiPo, Lilo, LiFe). iChargers design uses accurate balancing techniques to ensure that the voltage of each individual cell is the same during charge. Other battery chargers evaluate batteries charge state based on the total voltage of the pack, not each individual cell.
Greater control over balance charge setting. Ability to either set to start balance charging when voltage reaches a user set value, or start balancing from beginning or part way through the (Lithium) charge cycle. Feature set balance settings offers greater user control of the charge cycle.
Unique battery monitor function. Allowing user to monitor battery voltage (per cell), temperature, power and much more while in normal use. This is a unique function that offers options to compare battery performance, check the condition of a battery, as well as establish if the battery is suitable for its intended application.
Storage charge function that charges the battery to a user set capacity. Essential for long term storage and care of the battery.
iCharger 306B is a true 20amp battery charger. Boasting 350w of power which ensures that 20amps is available no matter what size the battery is being charged. Most "amp" ratings on other charging products available are not an accurate representation. They do not have high enough voltage to deliver the rating with medium to large sized batteries.
Unique Lithium battery expanding discharge program. When an external capacity resistor is connected, iCharger 306B produces a maximum discharge power capacity of 1200W (@40V/30A).
iCharger is a compact range of chargers, proven to have the smallest size to power ratio of any charging product available today. iChargers size is achieved by innovative circuitry design features that allow the charger to operate at 90% efficiency. As well as adopting external discharging functionality, icharger does not need large heat sinks and ventilation, reducing the overall size of the product considerably.
iCharger 306B fan is only activated if the internal temperature reaches high levels or during high current discharge. This reduces noise unless it is completely necessary.
Variable Input Voltage
iCharger integrated circuitry utilises revolutionary design to use variable input voltage, producing a regulated output to match the battery being charged. For example, iCharger can charge a 12v battery using a 6v input voltage. This unique circuit design offers incomparable versatility.
iCharger 306B is firmware upgradable via its USB connection to a PC.
iCharger 306B adopts a unique functionality allowing the user to make use of depleted energy in a discharge cycle. It sends wasted energy back to the power source and in turn, recharges the power source at the same time. The power source in this instance needs to be rechargeable, such as an automotive battery or any other rechargeable battery. Regenerative discharge also offers the opportunity to achieve discharge ratings (both amps and watts) similar to the chargers output rating.
- Battery internal resistance measurement. The iCharger 306B can not only measure the internal resistance of the battery pack, it can also measure the per-cell internal resistance.
