i ALWAYS say to my friends on track, "you spend rivers of money investing on better batteries, why you dont think that the charger is not an investiment also? when your batteries get puff you will know what i´m talking"

i always had a good chager, Hyperion, CE and never had problem with my batteries

Can someone further explain what the little bar graph next to the cell voltage while the charger is balance charging a LiPO pack?

I cannot seem to figure it out...

Thanks!

Bar graph is a indication of the relative Balancing Power being used.

Hi fellows!

i need a solution/help.... reading the manual on part of extra discharger, how i can dischager up to 70A... calculating the resistance by manual i got:

7.4v/70A= 0,105
7,4v*70A= 518w

i dont have a lot of knowledge but exist a resistance with this information?

thanks for help me!

answering my question rsrs i didnt find any so doesnt exist

i will have to make a circuit of resistors.... if i made right i will need 5 resistors with 0.5ohms 100w in parallel and the total of power is 74A 547W

It seem to be a common practise to use automotive headlight bulbs as external load for discharging lipos via the iCharger, although I have not tested it myself. Have you considered this as an alternative?
If you need to discharge a 7,4 volt battery I guess you would need a higher number of 12V bulbs as they would not draw much current at that voltage, but it should still be possible.

Actual purpose-built resistors in these power ranges are probably not as easy to find as bulbs are.

Sure i have! i made one years ago and i still have it!

im planning to make with resistor because i can build in small heatsink make a project "clean"

do you think making with resistors wont work?

I think resistors would be a better solution.
