The all new Bantam e-Station BC8DX sets the standard for features and functionality with a ease of use that is well known for Bantam e-Station lipo balance chargers.
The e-Station BC8DX is a TRUE dual channel lipo balance charger. Each channel is independent of the other, essentially 2 chargers in 1 box that share a huge 128 x 64 backlit LCD display that will not just show you your battery statistics but also you can view the charge and discharge graph's right on the chargers display!

Lithium battery charging
The Bantam e-Station BC8DX 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 BC8DX has these preprogrammed for you. Just select the lithium type and you are ready to go. The Bantam e-Station BC8DX supports several charging/discharging programs for all lithium battery types including Normal, Balance, Storage, Fast, and Discharge.
Nicad / NIMH battery charging
The Bantam e-Station BC8DX supports both charging, discharging, cycling, and formation charging of Nicad and NIMH batteries, up to 22 cells. The Bantam e-Station BC8DX supports 3 types of Nicad / NIMH charging. Normal charging, Linear charging, and Reflex charging. Each treat the Nicad / NIMH differently. Batteries with high internal resistance the Bantam e-Station BC8DX 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
The Bantam e-Station BC8DX during the battery charge or discharge program will show you the battery information on the LCD display. On display graphing of the battery charge or discharge curves, individual cell voltages, as well as temperature, capacity, time, and mah input and output are all viewable.
