What is B3 charger?
The iMax B3 Pro is a compact 2/3 cell LiPo battery balance charger. It takes 100-240V AC input. It features high precision balance circuit that can supply current up to 850mA per cell (3 x 800mA max). Double colour LED can display the status of each cell (RED: charging; GREEN: full).
How do you use a B3 compact charger?
The B3 is very easy to use, simply plug it into the mains power and the 3 LEDs will light green and then flash to red to indicate the charger is ready. Connect the balance lead of your battery to the balance port of the charger, after 2 secs the charger detects the voltage of the battery and starts charging.
How does Lipo battery work?
Just as with other lithium-ion cells, LiPos work on the principle of intercalation and de-intercalation of lithium ions from a positive electrode material and a negative electrode material, with the liquid electrolyte providing a conductive medium.
How long does it take to charge a lipo airsoft battery?
So it will take 5 hours total to charge a completely dead/new battery to its full capacity. You simply divide the mA on the charge to the mA of your battery and you will get the time it should take to fully charge a completely drained battery.
Why is balancing a battery important?
By the use of cell balancing, every non-defective cell in the battery pack should be balanced to the same relative capacity as the other non-defective cells. Other than using cell balancing, you can keep the pack cool since heat is one of the primary factors that lead to thermal runaway.
Is it OK to leave the battery in an airsoft gun?
If you want to keep the battery in/with the gun, at least unplug it. The short answer is no. There are so many reasons not to do this at there is no point and listing them all. So do not leave it connected inside that is the only answer to this question.
When should I stop charging NiMH?
Check cell temperature : If an NiMH cell becomes hot then the charging should be terminated. Consumer chargers do not always terminate the charge correctly. Remove the batteries when warm to the touch. Stop using a charger that “cooks” batteries.
What’s better 2S or 3S LiPo?
On a 2S LiPo battery, that motor will spin around 25,900 RPM. On a 3S, it will spin a whopping 38,850 RPM. So the more voltage you have, the faster you’re going to go.
