Not literally but, for a review. I've had my iCharger 208B since mid-2012 and I have not found a single fault in the listed capabilities or it's ability to live up to them. My FWB's kitten knocked it off my workbench to the hardwood floor where it landed flat on it's face. Result, just like a Timex watch ...
As for PRC, the quality of the Customer Service is all that you hear it is. Twice I have lost track of which USB cable came with my iCharger and since the pin-outs are different than a standard cable with the same connectors, I have contacted them wanting to buy another cable and both times they sent me the cable free including shipping. No big deal for them but it was to me. (Posted on 5/21/2016)

This little thing can push power anywhere. That's kind of a broad statement, but it's fairly true! It can do practically anything I want - even charging and balancing huge 100Ah LiFePO4 battery arrays used in electric vehicles (up to 8 at a time, at least). I'm even setting it up now to use an E-bike as a generator, and the flexibility of this charger means it's fine taking in 5 to 30 volts depending on how I'm pedalling, and output a constant voltage to charge batteries and run an inverter. I don't even do R/C stuff with this charger - I do everything it wasn't meant for, and it STILL never lets me down.

Intuitive and well-designed interface, even on its 16x2 character LCD. Tons of options to allow me to tune it for any application I need. If anything, the only thing I'd want is a more powerful version of this same thing! (Posted on 9/11/2015)

Great little charger. Does a great job. The folks at Progressive are wonderful to work with. I had ordered the wrong power supply to go with this charger. I called and explained the problem....they put a new one in the mail that day with the agreement that I would send back the first one. Very knowledgeable and friendly.

I really like this little charger. It has everything that I need right now for just getting started. So far I have charged, storage charged and discharged my 3s packs without any problems. The only complaint I have is I didn't receive an 8s balance board cable with it, instead it had a 6s cable in an 8s labeled pack. Did not try to exchange since I have no 8s packs.

ProgressiveRC Comment: The balance boards included with these chargers only support up to 6S, so the accompanying cable only goes to 6S. One end of the cable is 8S to plug into the 208B charger and the other is 6S to plug into the balance board. (Posted on 2/21/2014)

Just received, 1 charge completed and tested internal batt resistance. on several battery.s. Takes a little time to learn button push sequence to get what you want, but a few practice runs and you pick it up with no problem. Great charger and service so far. I would recommend this charger to any one needing their first charger or stepping up. (Posted on 2/25/2013)

I recently had trouble with my 208B that I've been using hard for probably 3 years. Without a second thought I immediately ordered another 208B because I've been so happy with the charger and the support that I get from Progressive. So then I e-mail David and ask him if I can send in my old 208B to see if it can be fixed. His reply is "sure, send it back to us with a check for $20 and we'll service it". So I'm thinking, well, it's certainly worth $20 to see if they can fix it. I'm thinking they are going to contact me and let me know how much more it will be to fix the unit. WRONG ! No kidding, about 10 days later I get a box in the mail. Gues what, A BRAND NEW 208B FROM PROGRESSIVE RC. Now I have 2 :) Now THAT is customer service and standing behind their product. I love Progressive RC and I will use their chargers as long as I can get them there!

Thanks,

David Minnich (Posted on 1/29/2013)
