Hitec X4 Plus AC/DC


I have just started using this charger....just getting the programming where i understand it...which is a totally another subject...soooooooo

I have only charged different packs 3 times...separately....the cooling fan has NOT come on...other chargers I have are ON when you start the charge...does this charger have a heat sensor for turning on/off the fan?

thanks

The short answer is yes. You can see the internal temp of the charger by pressing the down arrow while charging. It'll cycle through several settings and parameters one of which is internal and external temp. Internal will always show current temp but external requires the thermocouple attachment. The fan generally won't come on until it's either already warm (using it outdoors for instance) or you have a pretty heavy charge load on it.

Thanks Tsymonds!


...and while I'm at it....
I have some batteries...couple years old.....
BUT
They are 3s, but the balancing plug on them is a 4S....I have several like this...and i can look, but I don't believe they are from "no name" manufacturers..I think one is a polyquest in fact...

My first go around with one of those batteries with a 4S balance plug and this Hitec X4 AC is as I suspected...not working....soooo..
Anyone else run into this?....or an easy work around?

thanks

OK..charged a few packs...just one at a time....things seem just great...
The instructions...well...maybe I'm not of "at least average intelligence" like i have stated soooo many times.....

Thankfully some help from the "rc group" got me thru the setup...its still not an "automatic" event when i go to charge...but with some practice it will be.

I do like the charger so far......I'm sure there are things I'd like to see improved, but for the packs I use...it is a great charging solution....

So, at the very beginning of using this..HIGH marks so far....as time goes on...we'll see!
