Bantam has finally delivered: true AC/DC power capability with the internal wattage to back up the amps - AC/DC chargers simply don't get any better than this! If you're looking for the convenience & versatility of AC (wall unit power source) power that can dish out high amperage, the new BC8-DP Balance Charger is the only charger to have.

Building on the awesome success of the AC/DC Bantam BC6, Bantam has packed the new BC8-DP with everything a high end charger could ever need. No cumbersome & expensive power supply is needed with this unit; with a built in power supply, the Bantam can deliver 120 watts of internal power  on AC power, and a blistering 180A via DC current, which results in high amperage charge rates via high voltage batteries. Flexible enough to charge at home and at the field, the Bantam BC8DX has everything you'll need for your charging needs.

Rated at a max of 10A of power and capable of 8S (29.6V) LiPo charging, The Bantam BC8-DP delivers in spades, relaying all necessary battery/charging info via a bright, backlit graphic LCD screen. Also able to balance charge many types of batteries, such as LiPo, LiLo, and LiFe, this balance charger will not only charge your batteries at rapid rates, but will also carefully balance the individual cells, which are critical for modern day batteries.

If you're looking for the bestin AC/DC balance charging performance, you've just found it - The Bantam BC8-DP!

Note: The Bantam BC8-DP does not come with "Balance Boards" that are necessary to charge & balance LiPo batteries. Please check below for a list of Individual Balance Boards and Multi Balance Boards, and choose the correct Balance Boards that will work with your batteries on hand.

Note: For Multi Balance Adapters capable of charging more than (1) battery at a time, a "Series" type connector must be used, which doubles the voltage of (2) batteries, while the mah stays the same. In this configuration, (2) 3S 11.1V 2200mah batteries will be joined in "Series," and they will equal (1) 22.2V 6S 2200mah battery. Using the appropriate Series connector and Multi Balance Board, you can safely charge (2) 3S 11.1V batteries, or (3) 2S 7.4V batteries via the Bantam BC8-DP - see instructions for detail and safety notes.

Operating software

The operating program in this charger is executed with mutual links and communications with every component to prevent any possible error, so it introduces the maximum safety. Especially, the charging algorithm is so multifarious that you can select the best program to suit your requirement. And BC8DP has a large LCD for showing various information including charge/discharge graphs during the process.

- Dual input power

BC8DP employs the circuit that can be operated at AC(Alternating Current) or DC(Direct Current) input power. For AC input, the charger contains a AC-DC switching power supplier inside, which has 10A of power capacity and maximum output power of 120watts for charging. As a result, it can charge up to 22 cells of NiCd/NiMH and 8 series of Lithium batteries. When you use DC input power, the circuit power will be increased to 180watts. But there might be the limit of feeding current to a higher voltage of battery. Please refer 'Maximum circuit power chart'.

-  Individual voltage balancer for Lithium batteries inside

BC8DP has an individual-cell-voltage balancer inside. So it does not need any balancer separately when charging Lithium batteries (LiIo/LiPo/LiFe) for individual voltage balancing.

-  Monitor the individual voltages on discharge

BC8DP will monitor the individual voltages of the Lithium battery pack during discharge process as well as ‘FAST’ and ‘STORAGE’ mode. If the voltage of any one cell varies abnormally, the process will be stopped with the error message.

- Maximum safety

Delta-peak sensitivity : The automatic charge termination program works on the principle of the Delta-peak voltage detection. (NiCd/NiMH)

Auto-charge current limit: When charging NiCd or NiMH at 'AUTO' current mode, you can set the upper limit of charge current to avoid from feeding high current to the battery. This is very useful when charging the low impedance and small capacity NiMH battery in 'AUTO' mode.

Capacity limit: The charging capacity always calculated by multiple of the charging current and time. If the charging capacity exceeds the limit the process will be terminated automatically when you set the maximum value.

Temperature limit: The temperature of the battery on charging or discharging will be raised by its internal chemical reaction. If you set the limit of temperature the process will be expired forcibly when the limit has been reached.

Processing time limit: You can also restrain the maximum processing time to prevent any possible defect.

-  Cyclic charging/discharging

Perform 1 to 10 cycles of charge>discharge or discharge>charge continually for battery refreshing and balancing.

-  PC based analysis using USB communication

For technical expert, BC8DP offers PC based program can analysis the characteristic of the battery via USB port. It shows a graph of voltage, current, capacity and temperature curves. It also shows the individual voltage of each cell in the Lithium battery pack.
