I had read about the good qualities of the iCharger 306B and now I see why. Excellent built qualities and straightforward menus.
Very good customer support from Progressive and the charger was in Spain in less than a week.
Highly recommended. (Posted on 7/9/2012)

this thing does the job flawlessly and i am completely happy with it, bang for the buck is great too. most of us helicopter pilots here use these chargers and some of the air plane pilots i know also use these. well all love them

not sure how its rated at 1000 watts though, it can only charge at 30 amps if you do the math its not going to pull 1000 watts at 30 amps. . but still for the money i can charge 6 big 6 cell packs quickly and it performs great...

ProgressiveRC Comment: Thanks for the review and we are glad to hear you are enjoying your powerful charger set-up. To use a 1000W is possible for unbalanced LiPo charging, high cell count NiXX charging, or 36V lead acid charging. For example, to charge a 36V lead acid to full is 40.8V. With 1000W available that leaves a charge rate of right at 25A (25A x 40V = 1000W).

After recomendation from the folks at PRC,I decided to purchase the Icharger 306b.
It is my first Lipo charger and it is amazing!
I have four 2s 5000mah batteries that I charge in parallel with the cables also purchased from PRC and it only take about 18 minutes to charge all 4 at once.
I would highly recomend this charger for the novice or the pro. (Posted on 4/16/2012)

This was one of my most pleasant online buying experiences.
Thanks Progressive RC and thank you David.
The is an excellent charger, easy to use and with a wide range of input voltage. I don't need the high charging current capability, but I like the higher discharge current compared to my 106B. The change that I like to see in the next firmware revision is to ability to scroll the memory content, before selecting one, because it is difficult to remember what is stored in every memory location.

This is a really nice charger! Charging at high rates is no problem for this beast! I charged my 12S 3300mAh pack for my Trex 600 in 25 minutes! And thats only a 2C charge rate. I could easily double that with this charger if I wanted to. I highly recommend this charger.. and dont forget a nice power supply to go with it! (Posted on 2/21/2012)

The best charger for the money.. wish I had gotten the 3010b though as it seems 14s is the way of the future for large helis so that would mean charging 7s packs, but still, this is a awesome charger. (Posted on 2/15/2012)

This is a great charger and will do more that i can put it through. I have charged 3, 6 cell 5000 packs at 25 amps and the icharger handled that with no problem.

I would recommend this as a first charger because it will be one of the last chargers you will need.

Progressive RC is tops in customer service and quality products. The shipping was very fast, included accessories are a plus. They throw in a couple of balance boards to boot.
I will always buy from Progressive RC for my charger and power supply related items. (Posted on 1/23/2012)
