Well I get the Dumb a$$ award for the month. I just got a couple of server power supplies and decided to go the 24v route for parallel charging with both of my IChargers that I have.
I have the 3010 and the 106b+, well 24v is fine on the 3010 but not the 106.
I somehow forgot that little fact, when I powered them up I got an over voltage message on the 106 and now when I try to charge a battery I keep getting a message that says something like broken connection.

My question is, did I fry the 106B+ or is there some sort of a reset that can be done?
Do I need to send it back to EPBuddy, can they or someone else check and/or repair it?
Is there something that I can do? I haven't taken it apart yet to check inside for anything obvious yet.
Can't believe I did that, I'm usually pretty anal about things like that.
Too many different chargers to keep track of.
Think I'll just sell off all the other ones and get another 3010 to keep things simple.

Any tips or help greatly appreciated

I would just email or call Dale and tell him what happened and get his advice.

The 206b is rated for up to 28v, so i assume you have a 106b+?

You can't hurt a 206B with 24V input.
Here is the manufacturer specs.

A 106B is another story.

My mistake, it is the 106b+ charger, not the 206.
Tried everything I know to do, just keep getting the error message when it goes to charge.
Something like connection break.

Sounds like you fried something.

Never had an iCharger open, don't know if they have a fuse or not.

first off, fuses protect against over current, not over voltage. secondly, the charger powers on but gives an error, so it is getting power and that means it is not a fuse.

dude sorry but you probably just toasted the charger. talk to epbuddy and see what he will do. maybe he will give a good deal on a used 206b?

Yes I sent them an email. Haven't heard back yet will see what happens.
At least I have a couple more chargers I can use in the meantime.
