- After having a couple of the inexpensive charger fail, I appreciate the power, speed, and solid feel. Already found a failing cell in a pack, with increased IR in that cell. The pack had seem to run a little short, but cell voltage was normal. Probably saved a repair, making the expense worthwhile.
- I really like my PowerLab8 units...had them paired up but found that I get more versatility with them as stand alone units as I am charging lots of different chemistry...A123's rx packs, 5S and 6S Lipos, Nicads in my fueling station, LiFe in my transmitter, ect. I need to find an adaptor for my Shori LiFe fieldbox battery. Awesome charger...haven't seen a better one yet...and ProgressiveRC is second to no one for great customer service.
- The Powerlab 8 is the best charger made for my needs. Coupled with a 24vPS, I can quickly and easily parallel charge 6, 5S, 2700 mAh batteries. Discharging and storage charging are a snap when I return from the field with unused packs. A great investment for anyone in the hobby.
This the 2sd unit, to have two stations attached together, like a real powerfull station and IT DOES THE JOB, perfectly !
One of my old batteries APEX Plus 6.000 - 6S had one bad cell and PL8-V2 unit recovery it !!! I am very happy with the purchase.
- Thank you very much. Good service.
I bought a Power Lab 8 with parallel board and in 30 days it did not work. I contacted FMA USA and they wanted $125 + shipping to fix it. It did not seem right that it would cost 70% the price of the new charger to fix it. The FMA USA representative was extremely hostile. I have never experienced that type of customer service or product support. Personally my advice would be check out the iCharger 308 Duo.
ProgressiveRC Comment: We make every effort to provide the highest level of support at ProgressiveRC and apologize that the manufacturer's level of support did not meet the customer's expectations.
- Really fast delivery, well packed, all in working condition.
- Awesome charger. Definitely more than I currently need, but that is why I ordered it. I can definitely grow into this charger and will not have to buy another one for a very long time.
- great charger got it quick
- Very reliable charger, probably the best charger right now. I was also very happy with the fast international shipping of Progressive RC.
