Dynamite Passport Ultra Duo Charger

Just an FYI to anyone using the Dynamite Passport Ultra Duo battery charger with V1.0 Firmware:

Horizon Hobby has a V1.5 Firmware Update. Attached PDF files are English Manual and V1.5 Firmware Update Instructions. The Update Instructions have a link to the required ".exe" file. You can also go to Horizon's "Manual & Support" product page to download. You will need a computer and a MicroUSB-to-USB cable. Don't forget to update both sides. Happy charging!

If Horizon folks are perusing these forums, I'd like to request a feature in the next Dynamite Passport Ultra Duo charger firmware update:

1. The ability to adjust volume level on the audible 'Charge Complete' indicator. It's pretty low right now and barely heard over other noises.

Hi,

Thanks for the info.
I have just update the firmware on my charger.
But do you know what is does/changes?
And do you know how to do a cycle charge with it, for a 6S LiPo?

Oh, and good point indeed, it may be a little bit louder.

What do you mean by "cycle charge?" There's no need to cycle LiPo batteries.

Ah, I thought that was good for a LiPo after longer storage?
Or is that for NiMh and NiCd batteries?

Yes please Horizon, give us the ability to increase the volume. I love the charger but can't hear the beeps if I'm 10 feet from the charger.

Not sure where you are located? But if you are in USA, call Horizon Hobby Product Support at 1-888-959-2305. Those guys are good. Hope you get it figured out.
