Oh I see. Thanks.
I have borrowed my friend's PL8 in the past but I never really understood how to use it properly. I even downloaded and printed the manual - all 80 pages if I remember... but I could never get the Accurate charge to work, it used to always stop at 3.80 or something like that.. don't know why, so I used to just charge my batteries as normal. I can't remember which option it was that I used to use..

Received mine end of last week. Not parallel charged yet but I've been charging my 3s and 1 6s lipo.
I've just finished soldering deans to ec5 adapters last night. Will make some for XT60 as well.. for the MPA board.

How do I get the text file for PL6 unbalanced storage to read/load. Seems its a txt file and the software is asking for a Single Preset (*.PS6)

Remove the .TXT from the filename before importing. The instructions were added to the attachment during upload. But I see they are not visible in the post. I added the text to the first post.

Cheers for that, I've got a bit to learn to use this PL6 to its potential , your posts are very good and thanks for sharing your knowledge. You may also be able to advise why the help tabs in the PL6 CCS don't do anything, well at least for me. I have tried re-installing but still the same. After closing a couple of error windows the file doesn't exist it then opens the complete users guide manual. Is this normal?

Just to be clear, when you open the CCS, you see the tabs on the top row like in the tour http://www.revolectrix.com/CCS_Tour.htm

But when you click on them, there is no response?
Now you cannot even start the CCS as it gives an file doesn't exist error?

No I can use the CCS fine. Only if I click on a help for this tab button or on the help tab in the main menu I get that error. Close the error window ( twice) then the users manual launches complete. I was just using the help tab to see if I could get the info I needed when struggling to load that pre-set. Apart from that the charger control graphs etc. seem to function perfectly.

The "Help for this tab" quick link attempts to open the manual which is stored in PDF and uses Adobe Acrobat. It should take you to the section of the manual that discusses the tab you are on.

If the clicking the link gives an error, the issue may be with Acrobat. It might be work checking to see you are on the latest version of Acrobat and that its working correctly.
