Below is a list of buying guides.
Compare iCharger features, price and power rating with other popular brands such as; Hyperion, e-Station and Rc-Power.
OK OK this all sounds pretty good. Talk me into buying one of these iChargers.
In short, more power (watts) traditionally equals more current at higher volts, resulting in a faster charge time.
Your old charger might boast a maximum current of 10 amps or even 20 amps, but if it doesn’t have the adequate power potential, it will never be able to provide that current to your battery during the whole battery charging process.
Charging Lithium Polymer or LiPo batteries have very specific charging requirements and MUST only be changed by specific chargers designed to charge lithium polymer batteries. Mishandling of these batteries can lead to fire or explosions.
What are LiPo batteries and why are they so popular in the RC world? Here you will find all the things you need to know about "C" ratings, Capacity (mah), Charging Current and Cell Count or "S" Rating.
Instructions on how to calibrate the voltage reading of an iCharger. All electronic devices wonder with time. This article takes you through the steps of re-calibrating your icharger.
Parallel LiPo charging allows you to charge more than one battery at the same time (with a computerised RC battery charger). The big advantage of parallel LiPo charging is it saves time.
