I am really enjoying my i306b charger from Progressive RC. I came from using a small 50w charger that suddenly refused to charge 6s batteries anymore. I couldn't be happier with the steady, clean, power that the iCharger 306b supplies @24v and 1000w. Incredible! (Posted on 3/11/2013)

I bought this charger primarily so I could charge multiple batteries at rates higher than 1C, but I have since discovered that even if it wasn't a 1kw charger, it would still have been a bargain.The features and functionality of this charger are amazing! It was designed with users in mind. (Posted on 3/3/2013)

This Charger Rocks!Review by Helicam702

I was skeptical about purchasing this charger because I wasn't 100% sold on spending the dollars for it. After careful consideration I decided to purchase because for me it came down to the quality of products and the customer service of Progressive RC. There were other factors but those two reasons were high on my list.

I have had the Turnigy chargers for a couple of years now but in my opinion they never seemed to get my lipos balanced properly and it was kind of a chore to cycle new lipos prior to putting them in service.

The iCharger 306B knocked it out of the park! Cycling new lipos was super easy and the charger balanced my batteries perfectly. I couldn't be happier. The charger also allowed me to check the internal resistance of each battery. Solid!

I am extremely happy with the charger and plan to purchase another. (Posted on 2/2/2013)

I purchased this to supplement my i106B. The i206B will charge 3 3000mAh batteries in about 25 minutes! I'm only supplying 12V so I have some capacity left to go!

I asked ProgressiveRC a bunch of pre-sales questions which were answered quickly and clearly.

This has been use CONSTANTLY at 30 amps for about 6 months now. ZERO problems , it's excellent value and even though the interface and functions are similar to many of the other cheap chargers this i-charger is worlds above in the functions , features, and programming. It is definitely my favorite charger and my most powerful one. I think when I need another I will buy i-charger again from Progressive.

Thanks for excellent product, price, and service. (Posted on 12/17/2012)

I was looking for a charger to replace a larger unit, and having adjustable voltage cut off was a must. This fit the bill and is working perfectly. The menu could be a little easier, but it does what it needed to and more.

I'm looking at getting a second, as I like it that much.

Great product! The only problem I had was the balance board that came with the unit would not work with my TP packs. I finally had to clip the extra balance lead on my TP packs to get it to work with them. (Posted on 9/21/2012)

Old charger died (50w ac/dc). Read on forums about progressive and Icharger.

Got new 306B, along with parallel board. Using a computer server supply for power. I was able to charge my 2 3s batteries in 15 minutes. Before it would take 1 hour to do both.

Fantastic charger and board. Great service from David who I spoke to on the phone before buying. Will definitely use Progressive again for future equipment. (Posted on 7/30/2012)

This charger replaced a hyperion 720i Super DUO3. At the same 20A Setting Parralel charging 2 5000ma batteries the 306B was 10min faster. fairly easy to use but hyperion menu's were easier to use especially for presets. 306B makes up for it in charge times.
