Innovation has always been a hallmark of FMA's chargers, and the new Bump Controller doesn't disappoint! Using Near Field Communication technology, the Bump Controller is able to communicate with any battery equipped with a Bump Tag - a small sticker applied to the battery.
Once a Bump Tag is programmed for the battery, all you need to do is "bump" the battery against the Bump Controller and it will automatically configure your connected PowerLab charger to your preferred settings for that particular battery.
A simple and intuitive color touchscreen makes navigation a breeze, while integrated Bluetooth support promises even easier control in the future from Android and iOS devices.
Each Bump Controller includes six Bump Tags and two servo leads for connection to a pair of PowerLab chargers, or the two channels of a Dual PowerLab.

I would like to know if this Bump controller can be used with an Icharger. Does it work with ?
ProgressiveRC Comment: The bump controller only works with Revolectrix PowerLab chargers.
Wow this thing is amazing! It makes charging so easy and displays all the info you'll want to know. Plus its very easy to set up! With the App it's even better as you can control it via bluetooth from your phone or tablet! This product inspired me to build a charge case that I can hide the PSU's and chargers below a deck. I have only the bump controller and charge adapters above deck, I even mounted a tablet in the lid! The folks at ProgressiveRC are very friendly and knowledgeable, plus they have great prices!
adding this controller to your powerlab setups not only makes charging easier but gives you options with having a better user interface to control the charger. the presets could be a hassle but this bypasses those and give it more of a conventional charge interface. and with the bump tags makes it quicker to get up and charging.
