I've been using a Hobbyking Turnigy 1080W 220~240V (13.8V~18V) 60Amp power supply unit (PSU),it will be up to the job for this charger and i've been using it with my chargers for quite some time now and it's never let me down,they also do the same PSU for the USA which has a 100~120V,but as i'm not sure what country you are in so you might want to check them out yourself,go to the top of the page and look in the colum on the left and look a little ways down you will see Charges and Accessories,then click on that then click on power supply,if you have any questions on the PSU your thinking of getting just ask as i'm sure someone else will help you out if you get stuck,good luck.
Yes, you can parallel or serial charge two 2S 12.8Ah batteries: 8.4V*12.8A*2=215W. The charger gives 30A and 1000W for charging. You need a good power supply for it (24-36V, 1200W for the best result).
The guys at my local shop insist that 10s chargers dont exist bleh... anyway someone posted a link but it's cut off, and i've searched that entire section and do not see anything that seems to plug into a 10s port can someone let me know where to get a replacement board? i can't see any burnt traces but i'm one of those guys that didn't know you had to plug a certain balance port into a certain side which is still a bunch of b.s. that they don't make that CLEARLY LABELED
So this charger can handle:
two baterries for DJI s800:
to charge and balance them?
For now i will have DJI F550 and need charger for 2x (3s, 5000mAh batt.)
So i can use the same charger for now(2x5000mAh, 3s) and later(2x15000mAh, 6s).
Have been using mine happily for a couple of years now. But recently I noticed that the Balancer often doesn't work as it should and used to do. After having charged and balanced a Lipo often 1 cell is a lot lower than the other two.
I mostly separately use my old Bantam Balancer now.
Anyone got a clue.?
TIA and cheers, JeffBr.
Thanks again Molari, most helpful. Today at the club I also learned that the balancing problem I have, could be caused by a badly working balancing board. It seems that you have to attach the lipo connectors in a specific sequence. First the red lipo wire, then the balancing connector and at last the black lipo wire. Otherwise you could create a spark that over some time causes bad solder connections on the board. I will use a new board first to see if this resolves the issue.
Thanks and cheers, JeffBr.
i really need a high powered charger..ive read online that the reviews of it burning up is all fake.. and thats why no one posted a pic of it after it got burned..! what do you think , should i buy it.. its considered expensive..!!
I will receive it and test it soon. I think that the charger is grate. Just see how long is the thread for Icharger at rcgroups****. I think that the negative feedback for the charger is caused by the user mistake.
what do the aligator clips have to do with the power supply for this charger.? this charger uses bananas for the power input and the aligator clips are for the charging of batteries that you can apply clips on them, i.e. batteries that do not have a specific type of plug, rather than loose terminals.
Can I use this to charge my e-bike? It uses 4 12v 20 AH batteries in series making 48v. Could I charge them in series like they currently charge or set up a paraboard or would I have to charge them individually if it's even possible to charge them? Thanks.
Make 2x2 packs in series (each 2x12 volt, 20 ah). now you have 2x 24 volt 20 ah packs. hook them up to your parabord. select the charger to the propper Li-chemistry, number of cells: 6 (22,2 volt(for LiPo)), current output max (30 amps), press start. After 1.5 hours you are happy.
I think they're bolted together. I don't want to open up the box and rewire stuff to charge, I was hoping I could wire in connectors * 12v or 24v but I guess that will only work if the batteries are not left in series. My current 48v charger takes 8h.
When they're bolted, you have it easy, but you must open the box. That's not so difficult. 1. cut off the connection plus and negative between bat. 2 and bat. 3 2. connect the negative on bat. 2 with the negative on bat. 4 3. connect the positive on bat. 1 with the positive on bat. 3 (both with separate leads) 4. that's it. now you have a 24 volt, 40 ah batt.pack. You must find a way to connect the orig. charge leads with the charger (4mm bananas). You can charge this pack with propper settings on charger with 16-18 amps (max). about 2- 2.5 hours.
I bought two of the 3010B in 2012 with latest firmware from a US supplier and both blew up at 30 volts input, one while chrging single 6S lipo and the other wile discharging two 6S lipos. I will never buy another iCharger again. I am now a happy owner of Powerlabs PL8. Looking to buy another FMA PL8.
I know this may be a question that you’ve heard over and over but I would really like to know if I were to use two car batteries or even possibly three would that be adequate, I have two deep cycle car batterys rated at 12 V but fully charge max out at 13.2 volts, that equals to 26.4 volts three batteries 36 but technically 39.6 V on a full charge. Can I run 39.6 or stick with the two at 26.4??? Please
I would not go 3 because it's too close too the max input voltage. 2 will work great but I don't think you could charge the car batteries at the same time unless using a 24v charger. I intend to use one battery with one charger running at the same time. I'm hoping this will make the charger last forever (fingers crossed).
You can run 2 batteries quite well. With one battery, you are limited to about 500 watts charge due to 30 amp current limit. If you do not need to charge faster than 500 watts, stick with one battery and put a small battery charger on it and it will always be ready to do a quick dump charge.
Does anyone know what kind of Balance expansion board and interface cable to connect to the charger I would need to order? I would like to have a spare just in case! The part number would be super helpful so that I can find it here on Hobby King's web site. Both JST part number and the other kind, I guess that would be the one for Thunder Power ect? I see it comes with a 10s balance board, just would like to have a spare for both types of balance leads off of the battery. Thanks!
has the problem with these chargers blowing up been fixed yet? i need a new charger and i want one of these as i have the 1010b now, but im not going to buy one if its just going to blow up when i want to use it. cheers in advance
If you read the forums on rcgroups for this charger no one has actually had one blow up or catch fire. Speculation, amongst rcgroup members, seem to be someone making multiple accounts and posting fake results.
I have been using mine for months now, regularly charging a pack of 10s8p Turnigh nano Techs at 15 amps charge. This is about 630 W. Input to the charger is at 37 volt and 650W, so i cant charge at a higher current...or I would. No problem with this charger at all
What are the differences of these three explanation of discharge? - Maximum discharge power capacity: 80W - Maximum regenerative discharge power capacity:1000W - Maximum extern discharge power capacity: 1200W * 40V/30A
und fr alle germanspoken: geht mal auf ... zj-hobbyshop.de ... das ist die seite von zarko Jovesic. cooler typ mit richtig kennung.dort bekommt man alles, was man www.link u.s.w. alles auf deutsch (kann man auch ausdrucken). ist "ganz nebenbei" auch lizensierter junsi-verkufer fr deutschland. gru enzie..........
yes. your DMM will show a little different voltage. This is because the charger also accounts for the loss in the charging cables due to resistance. This is normal. However, check in the Lipo MONITOR mode, the voltages should be same. Incase there is a difference, follow the instructions to calibrate your charger.
I'm In exactly same situation, I have mailed few times, and also chattet with online-support. Online support either says they havent received the package, which is bull**, or they say its waiting for warehouse checking...
"Use the Yumo S-1200W/50A and you can run two of the iCharger 3010B on one PS."
hello nyfiken, not really.this power supply is ratet at 85 percent efficiency which means: 1.200W x 0,85 = 1.020 W divide by 24 V = 42,5 A (=output ps= input charger). 42,5 A x 24 V x 0,9(90 percent efficiency charger)= 918 W output charger. therefore the ps run at full power and the charger deliver "only" 90 percent of full performance. i dont think that this ps match two of 3010b. note: the species of the charger say 500 W at 12 V -right- but only the ps may deliver 50 A. thats the ohm"s law . i hope it is a little helpful for someone. greets to all...
Efficiency relates to the wasted power maintaining and reaching the rated wattage. 1000watt out needs 1176.471 watts in at 85% efficiency which is lost mostly in the Coil and not the finals that determine the fail rating. It is not subtracted from the rated wattage that is determined by an actual applied load testing.
I do not find a power charger for 23 volt 1000 W 30 A, which would work well with iCHARGE 3010B 1000W
Does hobbyking sells food on one site?
could you give me the link
je ne trouve pas d' Alimentation pour le chargeur 23 volts 1000 w 30 A, qui fonctionnerait bien avec la 3010B iCharger 1000W
Est ce que hobbyking vend l'alimentation sur on site ?
pourriez vous me donner le lien
hallo criss (and just like any other) 1. so far not. but who knows, hk is deeply committed... 2. to get the full performance of this charger you need more, e.g. : input by 23volt ~ 50amps or by 36volt ~ 33amps your ps must deliver min. 1200watt to get the full charge. better is 1500watt, than you have a little scope and the ps will thank you with more lifespan.
If you happen to know some electronics, you can connect power supplies in series to get 36V 1000W.
First, get three 350W powersupplies from ebay, search for "350W 15V 23.5A Regulated Switching Power Supply", you should get them around 30-50$ each. Set the voltage to same (for example 12v) on all three (there is a trimmer for adjusting voltage)
And then google for
"Connecting Power Supplies in Series acopian",
Read first link, understand, get the diodes, connect... voila 36v 1050W powersource. But be careful and dont blame me if it fails
You can not series power supplies: if the outputs share a common ground or are earth grounded through the feed or case. Also if the the shielding to the ground fails usually is not even noticed at the rated voltage because it is relative to itself. But when paralleled with 200-300% potential across the shielding diodes are probably exceeding rating = POP!.
To series some PS you need to remove the grounding to the case from the negativ pole DC part of the PS on one PS, if using more PS then leave one unmodded, did that on my HP 575W server PS and it works greate, u need to know how to solder and stuff but nothing scary.
iCharger 3010B has blown up at check. With a flame and a strong smoke. !!! , !!!

My Junsi iCharger 3010B went in flames while charging 3x12V (36V) Pb battery at 1,5A (input: lab PSU set to 30V 5A). It actually caught open fire and continued to burn with ~15cm big flames, until I disconnected everything. Before that I have been successfully charging 3S LiPO pack at 2A with balancing, also discharged and charged 24V Pb battery (the same kind as this one).
I currently don't know what to do, it is heavy and expensive to return.

We had our first iCharger burst into flames as others have described within a week of use. Hobbyking sent a warranty replacement, and that one lasted about 2 weeks before it just stopped working or powering on at all (but no flames). That was also sent back, and now we've been given credits instead of a 3rd unit. Sure it's and awesome device when it works, but totally unstable design and with dangerous failure modes. Better engineering required.

Not up to saleable standard! charging 8s packs for electric modified Hirobo Scedeau and 6S lipo for the Logo 500. Been using it successfully every weekend for the past two months until the other day where it stopped recognising batteries correctly and needed to plug in/out several, several times. Decided to not use it. As a Electronics Engineer decided to investigate and On opening the unit and checking it found several issues in quality

This charger is insane for parallel chargers : ) really thats a lot of watts youre putting in and taking out form your outlets Balancer is really accurate, within plus-0.02V and the internal resistance feature is awesome. Also there is a lot of customization you can do to get it to charge the exact way that you want, its really got some great software in it. Only problem is my usb port doesnt work, but Im really not to upset about
