Hi Gary

Be very careful what questions you ask..... This type of question would lead to some saying read the manual in a very condescending way

Its is very easy to check IR. plug in your balance plug into the charger, then your main power lead from the battery. While the charger is on press and hold for 3sec the stop button. the screen will change, now press the DEC button and you will get the IR for each cell. Press the DEC again and you will get the Pack total IR.

Good Luck

Thanks for your reply, here in australia there are a range of books, "the dummies guide to windows" etc so my comments were reffering to myself and no one else.

Well at least I learn something new every day.

Watch it the next time you charge.
It starts at zero and will climb.
That is what you are putting back into your pack.

This is the number you should watch to never have to put in more than 80% of the packs advertised size (mAh).
It you do, you discharged it too far.

Or do they just use math based on the volt/cell before and after they charge?
The charger tells you what it put into the battery on the display. Of course, if you are parallel charging, this is not so straightforward.

3010B Display Problem


My icharger 3010B has stopped outputting to the display.
The backlight is on with row of blocks in the first row of the display.
Buttons sound like they work, but I cannot get the display to change.
I have tried an update, but that doesnt make any difference (update shows as succesful)
Could any of you advise on what to try next.
Thanks

I'm thinking of buying a 306B and using this: https://sites.google.com/site/tjingu...projects/HP47A as a power supply. Right now for little 2s but soon for 2s 4000. Will this work well?

The 600 watt ps? It will be plenty for any 2s jobs you do. Probably anything over 300-400 watts will be enough for 8.5 volts output.

I wonder to know if Icharger 206B gives, the internal resistance of each cell, or just all pack?

It'll do both.

To check internal resistance of each cell, simply connect both the main leads and the balance lead and perform measurement. To check the pack internal resistance including lead, connector, and charge lead, do the same with the balance lead disconnected.

Re: Regenerative discharge. Does this effectively charge the Pb source? What if it's already fully charged? What's the smallest source I can use and dump say 4ah into it?
I just bought 2 206b's, for my 2S packs and will be using a 12v-575w supply to power them. But I'd be interested in the higher discharge rate that regenerative offers.
I did search, but after the first 10 results, it doesn't seem to be a question that's been asked very often.

edit: Apparently I just need to read more. Found another high-discharge solution too, using a Celllog monitor and a relay. I remember building something similar about 10 years ago for my NiCd packs.

From what I read about regenerative discharge your Pb source has to be low on charge or things don't work.

If what you are looking for is to discharge at a faster rate you will have to build a discharger.

Several types are in thread, here on RC Groups.
