Hello Bill,

Thank you for your appreciation. But sorry to say that now we do not have any plan for the pc connection to control the charger.

Thank for the reply Junsi, pc control is not that big of a deal when it comes to just charging batteries

Ding ding ding!
I re-wired my A123 pack with 10 gage wire, and it'll now charge up to 10 Amps.


Thanks!

It happens too in the storage or discharge modes, balance chg, fast charge, etc.

I f i go for Monitor mode I can see that the input Voltage switches between 13,957 and 13,963 volts normally each 6 seconds, but not always each 6 seconds. It is a Ripmax Pro-Peak regulated power supply 13.8 volt 0-20 Amps.
Hello gonzalix,

Would you pls change a steady input power supply and have a try? Or you can use a Lead-acid accumulator. Pls tell us the result after you test it.

Can I take this twin 2x3S->6S cable
http://www.hobbycity.com/hobbycity/...ead_(2_x_3S)6S_
to charge two 3S batteries with 106B+ charger?

Is there any reason not to do it?

Thanks. Is it much slower then a single battery current? What current can I use for a single battery?

Up to 10A. The rate at which you charge a battery depends on many factors including the chemistry, capacity, quality, rating and your preferences to trade off speed of charging for battery lifetime.

Oh, sorry
I was talking about 2200 mah 3S LiPo 20C battery. Really don't know what is recommended current for it.

Sorry for a stupid question. Read a lot in past few days. But not everything.
Thank you for pointing in a right direction.

With the wire cutter feature, it seems we could use this basically as a variable power supply. For example I have some LEDs that need a very specific current. I should be able to use the 1010B+ to drive at a specific current.

I wouldn't be damaging the charger doing this would I?

Just tried with a lead-acid accumulator and the problem persists.

Gonzalix, is there any possibility that the main charge leads (from the banana jacks at the charger) have an intermittent/poor connection somewhere? Perhaps this charger is more sensitive to alarm for this then other chargers.

Hi!

I tried this too, but it did not work. Before switching on, the charger produces a small voltage like 0.5V. When it senses current then, it ramps up the voltage.
But .5V is not enough to power any LEDs, so no current.


Anyhow, I was at the field today and charged a couple of A123 Packs, and I like the 3.09 update a lot. The fan is quieter now, and I did not get any errors, too.

Thanks, Junsi!

Cheers,

Julez

Yes, I have noticed as well that the fan speed is GREATLY reduced or turned off completely now with v3.09 during all of the different charges I have performed. Internal temp. is still kept well under control. Excellent job Jun-Si!
