The X8 is capable of a full 30A rate on LiPos up to 8S. 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 X8 can charge at up to 30A, and it can also discharge at up to 30A! While similar size chargers limit their discharge capabilities, the X8 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.

Compare to my 4010Duo it is tiny but it’s function nearly the same. I living outside USA and I got the first one with a black line across the screen and ProgressiveRC replace it for me within a week. So it is very fast service. I highly recommend the product and the Shop.
X8 is being used for estate/eboard battery packs. The display is very bright good resolution and has lots of well displayed info. Capable of doing discharge for 8s which is really important for me gives feed back like total time, discharged mah, internal cell impedance and can also do regenerative discharge which back feeds into your power supply pack which is near feature. Only bad thing I would say is the the jog wheel for menu selection is a bit odd with toggle up and down and push to enter but once you get used to it , it appears to be ok.
Would recommend either the x8 or x6 if you only need 6s capability.
Progressive was also really awesome to deal with to and got a very nice big sticker
The 3 way knob only sticks some of the time if you inadvertently push it in while rotating at the same time. There are 3 actions. Push in. Turn "north". Turn "south".
I was a bit put off at 1st, but no way is this going back. Takes a little warming up to that's all.
I really like that you don't need a balance board. Just plug right in or use an extention cable if you prefer.
I haven't used it a lot at this time, it is doing a great job at charging the batteries I need it to charge.
The Junsi iCharger X8 is the latest single port charger in the X series. When I first started looking for a new charger after having used an iCharger 306B for over 5 years of service, there was the precursor X6 around; however after talking to a representative here, I found out about this charging treasure of up to 30 Amps per charge for a price I could hardly believe. Though a bit smaller, it still has all needed info on one screen without having to hit a button. Speaking of buttons, this unit has none and doesn't need anything but the side selector dial and button all-in-one on the side. Plug in your male XT60 to female banana plug charge adapter (AC-MXFB) and male XT60 to male banana plug power adapter (AC-MXMB), along with your power supply and you are good to go. Toggling through the menu, it is a very user friendly charger. I would highly recommend this charging station to anyone looking for a single port charger that can take up to 8 cells and belt out the 30 Amp fast charge. Combine all this with the awesome customer service that Progressive RC has, and you have quite a deal. Two thumbs up. :D
