Charger iSDT AIR 8 (500W)
Miniature quick charger with balancer for 1–16 cells. NiCd / NiMH, 1–8 cells Li-Po / Li-ion / Li-Fe / LiHV / ULiHV, 2–24V Pb current 0.1–20 A (max. 500 W); discharge 0.1–1.5 A (max. 15 W). Power supply 10–34 V. Internal resistance measurement, microUSB port for update, Bluetooth for setting / control within the BattAir system with Smart modules for batteries and BattAir application.
The ISDT Air 8 500W miniature charger is a powerful intelligent charger powered by a car battery or a stabilized mains power supply and very simple and clear operation. Air 8 allows you to charge and discharge common types of cells (NiCd, NiMH, LiPo, LiHV, ULiHV, Li-ion, LiFe, Pb), in addition, it is equipped with a built-in eight-channel balancer, which ensures safe charging of lithium batteries. The charger is equipped with a color LCD display and touch programming buttons, which will provide you with the possibility of comfortable and very clear parameter setting, control and monitoring of the charging / discharging process.
In addition to the miniature dimensions with high performance and intuitive operation, it is worth mentioning:
program for new types of "high-voltage" lithium batteries LiHV with terminal voltage for charging up to 4.35 V and ULiHV with terminal voltage 4.45 V
powerful balancer with current up to 1.5 A
adjustable end voltage for charging and discharging for lithium batteries (allows more gentle charging, which pilots like, or, conversely, brutal overcharging, which is enjoyed by "toy cars")
adjustable terminal voltage for charging for lead-acid batteries (2.00-2.45 V; allows charging of all types of lead-acid batteries)
possibility of communication and start of charging / discharging without the need to set the charger in cooperation with iSDT Smart modules for batteries (they store battery data and preset parameters for charging with the help of the BattAir application) connected via Bluetooth; the charger can work independently with the battery with a preset Smart module or under the "supervision" of the smartphone with the BattAir application (Android and iOS)
Overview of basic functions and parameters
10-34 V DC power supply (XT60 socket)
For charging and discharging 1 - 16 NiCd / NiMH cells, 1 - 8 Li-ion / Li-poly / Li-Fe / LiHV / ULiHV cells or 2- 24 V lead-acid batteries
Adjustable charging current 0.1 A - 20.0 A (max. 500 W) - to fully utilize the power of the charger, the power supply must have a voltage of at least 30 V
Adjustable discharge current 0.1 A - 1.5 A (max. 15 W)
End of charging using delta-peak automation for NiCd and NiMH batteries
Lithium and Pb batteries are charged using the "constant current / constant voltage" method
Adjustable delta-peak detection sensitivity for NiCd and NiMH batteries
Adjustable charging and discharging voltage for lithium and lead batteries
Three modes for lithium batteries - charging, discharging and storage charging / discharging; all with or without a balancer. In addition, a disposal discharge mode for safe discharge of a discarded battery before it is handed over for recycling
The charger can operate as a stabilized power supply with an adjustable voltage of 2-30 V and a current of 0.5-10.0 A
Easy firmware update via micro USB port
Backlit color LCD display with simple and clear menu and display of parameters during charging / discharging
Programming touch buttons for easy and clear setting and control of the charger
A number of warning messages contribute to safe operation - incorrect input voltage, incorrect connection, unsuitable battery or its condition, incorrect polarity at the output, etc.
Forced cooling fan.
Compact plastic case, miniature dimensions
The charger is equipped with an XT60 output socket and a universal socket for JST-XH service connectors allowing direct connection of battery power cables and JST-XH service connectors of 2-8S kits - if you use kits with XT60 and JST-XH connectors, you can do without charging cables and adapters. You can use standard Sky RC or RC System adapters to connect the service connectors of other systems.
The charger set includes: ISDT Air 8 charger, display protector, instructions and, as a bonus, a Smart module BAP4 for 3-4S LiPo and BAP6 for 5-6S LiPo.
