The all new Bantam e-Station BC8DP sets the standard for AC Powered chargers with features, functions and an ease of use that Bantam e-Station chargers are known for. The Bantam e-Station BC8DP charger is one of the most functional chargers available on the market today.
The e-Station BC8DP is a TRUE dual power (AC and DC Power) LiPo balance charger. A huge 128x64 backlit LCD display that will not only show you your battery statistics but also allow you to view the charge and discharge graph's right on the chargers display! Included with the Bantam e-Station BC8DP is the EAC300 software graphing kit as well as 1 EAC110 temperature probe.
NOTE: Bantam chargers no longer include software. Software updates can be found here:
- Lithium battery charging: The Bantam e-Station BC8DP supports the 3 lithium battery types used in RC applications. Lithium Polymer, Lithium Ion, and Lithium Iron Nanophosphate (A123 Systems). Each lithium type has its own low voltage and high voltage parameters and the Bantam e-Station BC8DP has these pre-programmed for you. Just select the lithium type and you are ready to go. The Bantam e-Station BC8DP supports several charging/discharging programs for all lithium battery types including Normal, Balance, Storage, Fast, and Discharge.
- NiCd/NiMH battery charging: The Bantam e-Station BC8DP supports both charging, discharging, cycling, and formation charging of NiCd and NiMH batteries, up to 22 cells. The Bantam e-Station BC8DP supports 3 types of NiCd and NiMH charging. Normal charging, Linear charging, and Reflex charging. Each treat the NiCd and NiMH cells differently. For batteries with high internal resistance the Bantam e-Station BC8DP has the ability to delay the peak detection from 1 minute up to 15 minutes. The Delta Peak sensitivity is also has 3 parameters, Default, Disable, and Delicate. The Delicate setting allows the charger to detect very minor variations in the delta peak voltage which some NiMH batteries may require.
- Screen Display While Charging: During the battery charge or discharge program, battery information is viewable on the LCD display, including graphing of the battery charge or discharge curves, individual cell
voltages, as well as temperature, capacity, time, and mAh input.
