Pack charger
#1
I'm looking to purchase a pack charger. Came across this old discussion...

Depending on the model/brand there are feature like regenerative discharge and external discharge which can greatly improve the discharge rates for capacity testing.  iCharger is known to do this well, I like their units for this type of work and they have various models in different price ranges that can all pretty much do the same thing.  I’m sure others can too, but I don’t have first hand experience.

Balance chargers work well regardless if you are testing a single cell or a complete module as it is balance aware.



I've been scanning the forum for recommendations for large pack chargers/testers. I came across the iCharger Duo range and liked them, but the specs and manuals do not mention Li-ion anywhere so I assumed that they don't. Can you confirm?


I'm considering an X8 if the Duos are not suitable. Compactness is not a requirement. Anything else I should consider?
