Hello everyone,

Thank you for your threads. We have read them carefully, and here I will answer your questions.

When one increases the biggest current, the display starts at the smallest current, and vice versa, like:
9.8A+9.9A+10A+0.05A+0.1A
or
0.1A-0.05A-10A-9.9A-9.8A
We will implemented in 1010B+ and 106B+ in the near future.

There's no need to reinvent the wheel!
Our engineer thought the current changes in larger steps 0.5A is better, later, we will take it into consideration.

Initial reading on two different LiPolys 4 / 4 / 8 and 4 / 4 / 10. Both of these have consistently measured between 2.8 and 4.3 depending of charge rate and temperature so I tend to believe that cell # 1 & 2 are displaying correct IR and Cell #3 is way off. Note I tried not only my homemade balancing leads but also the OEM one and reading were the same.
We found there are some bugs in the programme, and we will modify it. Thank you for your suggestion.

Note: Our engineer has just modified the software. The longer time you press the button, the stepping speed is more faster than before. We have tested the current changes from 0.5A to 20A, now it only needs 10 seconds instead of 20 seconds originally.

As for the Cell IR readings, we also modified it. See the attached upgrading file below.

Regards,
Junsi
