ISDT Pocket Charger..SC-608...150W / 8amp
« on: May 16, 2017, 10:54:25 AM »

Arrived Today from the Bangood EU Warehouse.

ISDT Pocket Charger.


    After 7 months use, my Accucel 6 Charger decided it wasn't going to charge much above a 1amp rate, so I needed a new one. It also never balanced cell voltage very well either.

  The colour display is easy to see, even in direct sunlight, with rotary selector wheel and push action combined. Onboard thermal manager with internal temp display. Just plug in your balance lead and it detects the cell count for you.
  Select battery type and what action you want, real easy and pocket sized, perfect on the field if you want to charge small Lipos etc.

I've had one of these for over a year now and they are a great little charger for the field.
I have sold well over 50 of them and only had one returned with reports of a sticky button. It seemed fine when I tested it and is actually the one I still have.

I also have its big brother, the SC-620 for charging the 'big stuff' at home :)

9-32V DC on an XT60

You should be looking at around 45 from a UK supplier

I nearly picked one of these up on a recent order but decided against it.
Guess I should order one now

/edit

For field charging what battery do you recommend as a power source? I charge 4s cells mostly

I quite like the look of these isdt chargers but although only taking an xt60 supply is a little awkward. I know you can make an adaptor, but it's a shame they don't supply banana plugs or something. A couple of guys I know use the smaller charger and really like it. If I got one I'd get the bigger one although I have a 300W reaktor that's working well.

My other issue with all chargers is finding a half decent but not overly expensive power supply. What's the best value 500W power supply you guys know of?

It all depends on what you class as overly expensive :)

I use a hoofing great Digimess bench supply for mine but I also use that for other things, so the 350 I payed for it seems reasonable to me.

Prior to that I was using a converted PC power supply for chargers, which worked great and was free out of a mates old gaming PC when he upgraded ;)

 This little pocket charger cost me 39.30 delivered from the Bangood EU Warehouse...

 8amps max output is plenty for me, charge one and fly with one, its enough....I have some 10 amp 4S Lipos, but we have a pair of Heavy duty lead acids in our flight hut to use.. (24vdc)
  These are kept topped up using a Solar Panel...We are Green...:)
