You can use these cables to charge an 808 cam on a 306B. You just need a female servo lead adapter to a Banana lead or whatever you use on your paraboard.

The + and ground lines on the cables will work with any key cam -- it doesn't have to be an FPV version.

It's clearly labelled "5V input"! The camera. like most gadgets, have a built in charger that needs 5V input (USB port etc.). Connecting it to a charger will destroy the camera.
.
The USB charge port on 308 duo is just a 5V 1A output.

I don't know what a “308 Duo" is -- I don't know why you're telling me about them.

The 306B that I do mention feeds 4.2V to 1S lipos. While YMMV, the 306B won't fry your 808 camera unless, as with any lipo charge configuration, you set it up wrong.

That being said -- I haven't tried it. It seems to me like it would work, but I don't know enough about the tech to be sure.

If the camera has its own charge circuit, then you need to feed it 5V, and it will take care of the rest. Don't give it anything else besides just a 5V source.

If it can charge via a simple USB cable, then it is likely intended to simply take 5V.

The power source would give it 5V, and the internal charge circuit will take care of charging the LiPo.

You would not be able to read the LiPo voltage via the 5V-in port, so best case, the charge would not work. Worst case, you would damage the internal charge circuit.

My TX is like this. It needs just a 12V power source. It's internal charger will charge the battery. Connect your charger to the 12V-in port, however, and you will damage the TX. Even if you set it to the type of battery the TX uses.

If the charger was external, and you could read the LiPo voltage via the port, then that would be different. But then they would be providing a specific external charger, and you could not simply use any USB cable.

The 308Duo is another iCharger, which has a USB port that can be used to charge any device that can charge via USB.

That's great, I'm glad you got it working again, and thank you for posting the results. Maybe that will help someone else in the future.

with this power supply:
http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbycity/s...dProduct=17424

When i try to discharge one of my 4S batteries it will not DSCG over 1A, it keeps holding it at 0.99A and wotn go higher. The charger can do much more than this, why is that? trying this on a Zippy Compact 4S pack.

Look in Settings, there will be a page where you can set Discharge power. I think it defaults to 15W. You can increase this to 20W, the maximum that the charger can dissipate during a discharge.

But with a 4S (16.8V-max) battery, you still won't get much over 1A.

Initially, you'd get 20W/16.8V = 1.2A. This will increase a bit as the battery voltage decreases during the discharge.

Quite simply, you're most likely hitting the 20 watt maximum internal discharge capability of your charger. To understand maximum discharge current, divide 20 by battery voltage. Suspect that you have a 4 cell lipoly that you're attempting to discharge?
