Bought the combo, but after 7 or so uses the power switch failed on the power supply, leaving it on constantly even when off.
When I notified Progressive RC, they immediately offered a solution to try, and when that did not work, went into the exchange process. A little too much "paperwork", but the complete process went real fast and I am happy with the new unit so far.
Being someone who was getting back into RC after several decades, I needed to get a simple Lipo charging setup. I was referred by a friend to Progressive and have been very happy with everything.
Prior to my purchase I had one last question which was thoroughly answered over the phone by the customer service person. I ordered the 220W combo kit with the iCharger 106B+ and 220 Watt power supply as well as other accessories that I needed to complete it. The website is well laid out and makes it easy to navigate and get everything that I have needed.
I will certainly be passing on my recommendation for Progressive to others friends of mine that need charging supplies.
I ordered from Israel the starter and received it in 7 working days!!!! Amazing.
The charger is great the power supply is a bit noisy but the combination is just perfect for my 130x 2s batteries and should be fine even for the 300x.
So only one word : perfect.
Keep up the great work.
Very happy with product and service, quick shipping and well packaged out to New Zealand. Just remember to switch power supply over to 220V and change the US plug - easy. Have only charged a couple of lipo's so far and it worked well. Must admit the charger's manual is quite convoluted and confusing if you're new to RC and battery charging but I'm sure there's a load of info on the net somewhere... I just haven't found it.
ProgressiveRC Comment: Thanks for the tip and your support. For all the info your could ever want on the iChargers, check out the main thread on RCGroups:
- Great products and the stand behind their warranty. Don't waste your time or money anywhere else!
- The charger and power supply have been working great. It was such a good upgrade from my cheap 50watt charger. I have already been using the hotwire foam cutting function. I would definately buy from progressive rc again if I was in the market for another charger
- So far the charger seems perfect. It charges fast and has actually fixed a lipo with a bad cell. If it last a while I would say you cant go wrong with this set up
- Seems a little pricey for what it is, but everything works, and the charger seems to be accurate. Both the charger and PSU feel a tad cheap in hand, but I have had no problems yet. Charger has enough features for what I need.
This charger is awesome. I got this to replace my old Thunder AC and Onyx 230
chargers.I parallel charge all my batteries using the boards that they sell here. I didn't realize how out of date my older chargers were until I got my hands on the icharger 106b. I will sticking with this brand.
Progressive rc = excellent customer service and advice!!!
Charger, harness, and power supply were EXACTLY what I needed for my current requirements and I have enough of a rig to grow into larger capacities.
