GT1000 and GT1200 charge termination


I own both and was doing some parallel charging on both this morning and it seemed different from the PL6 I also use.

The PL6 will promptly terminate the charge with C/10 even when parallel charging. I set 3a per pack for 9 packs and when the charge is below 2.7a it terminates.

The GT1000 and GT1200 didn't terminate the same. When the charge went below C/10 they both continued for five minutes more that the PL6 would. The packs being charged have been charged on all the chargers in various combinations and the behavior is the same.

Is there a setting on the GT series that needs to be changed from the default to correct this? The setting on the termination is C/10.

Did you notice at what amps the charge terminates? Is the "Require Balance Done" setting at "No"?

It may also help if you could share more details about your settings. If all settings are normal, then it's not unusual for both the Powerlabs and GT series to exhibit different behaviours since they run different firmware algorithms.

Settings are default since I haven't changed anything. I will go in and see what they are set to this evening.

I had the charger set to 3 amp charge rate x 9 parallel packs. It was charging at 27 amps and didn't terminate until below 1 amp.

All the packs are good and have been charged on the PL6 without this behavior so I assume it was a setting that is just different in the GT1000, GT1200 chargers.
