If you’re the kind of person that likes to save all of the plots of each charge then this is an essential feature.
Basically any cell combination of most any rechargeable chemistry with a termination voltage of 36 volts or less can be charged.
Notice that cell 4 was lost in the noise but now we can instantly see that it is bad and needs replaced. The firmware updating utility is created and maintained by Junsi, but for plotting the data they use a third party application called LogView that is free to use.
Turnigybut be prepared for some very unusual choices of words. Each of those boxes in the right four columns is repeated in the following pages in the manual with directions on what can be changed and what effect it will have.

It is an inferior but less expensive solution to the problem. To test this claim I charged a 3S LiPo pack in balance mode and measured the voltage shortly after the termination of the charge.

Another feature not seen in all chargers is a temperature probe that can be used to record pack temperature and even activate a safety shutdown if the pack gets to hot. If the balancing connector has correct polarity, and then connect the main charging port, there is no problem; but if balancing connector has reversed polarity, and then connect the main charging port, it will 20b.
When you use other equipment to charge or discharge a. Lithium pack, you can use the iCharger to monitor the per-cell voltages, battery temperature and process time. See detail information about logview in the following website: Looks like it limits LIPO up to 1C although it certainly appears to have the power to charge many packs at a much higher rate.
