iCharger X12

X12
The first iCharger with 12S capability, the X12 is truly ready for anything!
$179.99

The first iCharger to offer 12S capability, the X12 is a step forward for operations that require high-voltage input.

With a balance current of a full 2A, charges will finish faster than ever. The full color IPS display provides a wealth of information at a glance, using the operating system perfected on the larger Duo iChargers.

The X12 can charge at up to 30A, and it can also discharge at up to 30A! While similar size chargers limit their discharge capabilities, the X12 offers iCharger's trademark support for regenerative discharge, allowing the charger to provide a full 1100W of discharge capability when powered from a suitable battery bank.

Despite its small size and low price, this is still a full featured iCharger, with multi-chemistry support and all the depth of settings you've come to expect, including an improved software interface for recording battery data and upgrading firmware.

Runs off 48v just fine

The x12 allows higher input voltage than x8, and it works fine with 48v input for me. The balancing seems pretty clever and holds the cells quite close. Fast storage program is nice. Not hard to configure once you know the secret long-hold stuff, though the menu tree is slightly non-obvious; fine once you've figured it out once. I've run it up to 18A output so far; no issues. Check out LRS-350-48 for up to 350W at 48v, or _maybe_ 2 LRS-350-24 in series if you really know what you're doing and know about protection diodes and how to ground both supplies (YMMV). For external dump loads for the faster external discharge feature, might be worth considering 24v wind power dump loads, like a 300W 2.9 ohm which are reasonably priced, maybe in series depending on voltage, to keep well below max dump power per. Or regen discharge is awesome if you've got an input battery that can handle it. Seems simpler than dealing with teaming dual channels, especially if your model has dual packs that'll get charged in parallel anyway. Dual channels might be nice for field charging for models that finish off one pack at a time. 2 completely separate chargers with a screen per "channel" is even better, but...

The electronic function of i12 is great!
I agree with others that the small roller/toggle switch on the side is somewhat difficult to use. Double the present size would probably be good.

Awesome features but a bit fidgity

Great power and versatility. Took me several hours to figure out how to navigate to all the menus and make changes but there's a lot more options than in previous ichargers. The color screen with many lines of data is a big upgrade from the LCD 2 data line older chargers but the print is pretty small.. Not a problem for most I'm sure but could be for some people. Several button pushes are needed to initiate a charge and the little scroll wheel must be pushed in which requires one hand to push the combined scroll wheel/button and the other hand to keep the charger from sliding on your workbench, picnic table or whatever surface it's on. This is the price to pay for such a compact unit. Overall I'm very happy with it and have pretty much ditched my older ichargers. I do fly some 10s packs so of course it's great for that and the ability to charge 12s is there. Real time IR data is available with a 0.00 format for greater accuracy instead of single numbers and many other big improvements from the older ichargers. 2amp balance current is a big step up and of course there's the ever popular regenerative discharge feature . Fan is quiet and I've had no gltches or issues with my x12 whatsoever

A little tedious to learn but outstanding features

Navigating the menus takes some time to learn and is a little confusing due to the scroll wheel as the only control on the charger. Comes with two male XT-60 male connectors with bare wires on the ends so either order input female banana plug splitter and out put cables ending in male xt 60 or be prepared to do some soldering. No alligator clips included so you'll need some of those too. The charger itself is fantastic and it's so much easier to see information on the color LED screen with multiple data lines as opposed to the old two line black and white LCD display of previous ichargers. Much better balancing power, IR info in tenths instead of single numbers. The list of improvements over the old ichargers goes on forever. Also don't forget to order the 12s balance board as the charger doesn't come with one of those either.
