When my old charger failed I placed an order with Progressiverc for an iCharger 106B+ and sat back expecting to wail 2-3 weeks. I received the unit in 2 days and didn't bother to read the excellent manual It worked perfectly right out of the box and continues to surprise me with its features. Its switch mode power technology allows it to have a small footprint yet still run cool. The fan is not stressed in the least. This is an excellent charger and if measured in charging capacity per dollar this charger is second to none.
- The charger is very compact and runs very quietly even when the cooling fan is on. It's an accurate charger with lots of nice features such as measuring the internal resistance of batteries (you can see the battery starting to age and the resistance increase or find a bad cell). Great for charging a few 3S or 4S 2200mah batteries in parallel.
This little charger has a lot of features for it's small size and $89.99 price tag. I'm not totally familiar with every feature that it offers yet, but it is every thing I need.
Progressive RC ROCKS! They ship orders really quick and have always been most helpful with questions. The free shipping is a fantastic bonus.
Charger is still too new so I don't have too much to comment on yet. Menu system is a bit complicated but probably because the charger has so many features.
ProgressiveRC service was terrific. Charger was delivered promptly. It was missing a balance board (probably because of an ordering mistake on my part) and a quick email to ProgressiveRC resolved the problem in no time (they sent it in the mail the next day!). Great service!
- I was looking for a charger to replace my old MRC 989 charger. The old charger is not great at charging lipos and for a $100 unit has very little options. I had one lipo battery that it could not charge for some reason. Thank god I saw the icharger 106B+! I was finally able to charge the one 2s lipo that my old charger couldn't read. The icharger feels like a modern charger and has enough options and settings and upgradability to be around for a long time for me. I find the charger easy to use and have had no problems since getting it.
- I am loving this charger and I really appreciate you guys helping me find the one that was right for me. It charges so fast compared to the cheapo charger I had before, and it doesn't even cost that much more. A great value.
- I like the charger a lot. Easy to use, great features. Progressive shipped my order the same day and it arrived shortly thereafter. Recommended.
- I'm impressed by this little charger. its accurate with many features. I am also happy with ProgressiveRC.
- I fly heli's that run 1S batteries so I didn't want to spend a lot on a charger, but at the same time I wanted to prolong the life of my batteries. This charger fills the bill. It works perfectly so far. One item from my order was not in stock- ProgressiveRC shipped the rest without holing up the order. Great service!
