maybe, just and idea, i know it looks confusing, basically just posts at each end of the cell, and wires connecting to each one.

YOU SHOULD BUY TEAMWAVE STOCK. You are talking about that dam tray every thread i see.

sorry to bring this back up again, but i was just wondering, If i were to want a discharge cutoff of say .7 volts on my tray, what diodes would I buy?

on everypost? hardly. if someone ask what is the best equillizer then i will say teamwave. simple but otherwise i dont bring it up.

in anycase, if you have ever tried it them you too would recommend it. i am sure of it. i didnt buy one myself untill i saw it in action and my friend let me use his. he got angry coz i wouldnt use my smart tray anymore and kept on using his teamwave. i ordered one and got 1 week later. never looked back.

when i set it to the lowest setting, i can take out about 700mah more juice than a conventional equilizer, coz of its ability to lower the discharge amps (all the way down to 0.1amps) as it reaches its cut off point.

Almost all silicon diodes have a forward voltage drop of 0.7v.

so any silicon diode will do? Do you think you can recomend me specific ones? And I would mount them as you mentioned earlier? The positive end of the diode to the negative of the cell? Btw, that would make my tray into a polarized tray correct?

Yes, it will be polarized. Get one that is at least 3A.

Would it be easy to raise the discharge rate to, say, 5 or 6A? Is it simply a case of increasing the load? or would I need a diode rated to a higher current?

Thanks

Think aboput wutchu already know, If U pull 5 to 6 amps thru a 3 amp diode....
I would like to know if U kin use zenier diodes ( say rated at .9v)?

Current = Volt/Resistance so the lower the resistance the higher the current. Then you also need a higher wattage resistor because it needs to be able to handle the increased power.

So if I used a 5W 0.33ohm resistor what sort of discharge rate could I expect? could anyone suggest a diode that would work? I looked but wasn't sure what factors about the diode i needed (P600J ok?).

Discharge current would be around 3.5A and the cells would equalize around 2.1A. A diode that can handle the current would work.
