The cooling fan by default is set to automatic and only comes on when needed. You can set it to manual and have it running all the time but I see o need to do so.

Yup, just leave it on auto. If it gets hot, the fan will come on.

Unbalanced balancing question

I have a balancing question regarding a 1010B (non-plus) using 3.13f, with balancing only in CV phase.

When charging an unbalanced 6S 5000mAh pack (2x unbalanced 3S) I had cell voltages ranging from 4.08 to 4.20 as the charger was balancing in the CV phase. For simplicity let's say the voltages were as follows:
4.08, 4.12, 4.14, 4.16, 4.18, 4.20

When balancing the charger first bleeds from the highest cell (#6) - seen by the voltage flashing in the per-cell display. Next balancing cycle it bleeds the two highest (#5 and #6). Next cycle the three highest (#4,#5, and #6). Then the two highest. Then the highest. And so on. Cells below a certain level (4.15?) seem to never bleed.

Is it really optimal to bleed the non-full cells?

Or will relatively slowing the charge of the middle cells by bleeding, allow an overall higher charge current as the balancer circuit only has a single cell at 4.20 as long as possible?

Slowing the middle cells charge this way will leave you with a less unbalanced pack should you decide to stop the charge before all reach 4.20 - which is a big plus.

Read the manual and then if you have questions, come back.

Basic steps:

1) Select the NiMH mode
2) Select the charge/discharge program
3) Set the parameters (eg charge current)
4) Press Start

I got mine last thursday and was able to test it first time yesterday. Just believe me: it's much better - you'll love it!
And you'll love it even more when you combine it with logview either to track live data during charge/discharge or to visualize logged charge data - logged with the 208Bs internal data logger.

Thank..you
i have some Questions
i set 2A for charge NI-MH, i pressed start
the Icharger said .15A charging and 11.53V 00050mA, so then i charge for 8 cells Ni-MH

Question is what's gonna on? Is the Icharger have some problem? or my batteries have problem? or my batteries still have alots power?



Thank...

A year or so behind schedule I have finally completed my review of the 208B. Please feel free to leave comments regarding it under my blog post.
