the runtime here will vary depending on how long it is discharging at 30amp.

example, if you discharge a cell at 1amp straight you will be able to extract alot more mah out of it than at 30amp straight, because the voltage will stay above 0.9v alot longer.

anyway Dasupacat, tell us your results once u rematch....
That's why the DPD is cheaper than the muchmore CTX-D. A DPD is just only the Dyna Pulse with automatic equilizer. If something can select a matching mode like CTX-D and a pack mode like DPD, it'll be the best discharger I think.

Nothing different besides the color. The black was made for team drivers at first.

Default blue vs black

The Black version has recesses molded into they tray so packs with the solder tabs facing down will fit better.

wow .. didn't realise that ..

btw .. i use the DPD "pulse discharge" function all the time.
after the discharge & equalising stop, i notice that my batteries are consistently warm to touch.
not hot but just warm.
is this the same for everyone else?

very curious bcos when i was using my spintec to discharge the batts, the batts were *never* warm.
perhaps some differences in pulse discharge algorithm.

Dont think you can do 5 cell internal... only 4 or 6 cell. Can only do 5 cell external

Haven't tried yet, but should be possible atleast using a dummy cell with a battery bar. Don't think it would work with only 5 cells.

I got mine last week and have only used it few times. Great piece of equipment.

No it doesnt do 5 cell or 6 individual loose cells either..

To get 5 cell or in my case i wanted to dump 6 loose cells i had to lay battery bars across the appropriate terminals to get it to turn on, unfortunately the IR goes through the roof doing that so ignore your numbers if you do this

you only have to bridge across the empty slot though ? yes /no??
thus that empty slot where the 6th cell went ,which is where you bridge the gap with bar only the 5th cell goes through the roof ??(with me here ??) re IR

the problem i see with using dummy cell is that dummy cell will need to be charged, otherwise the DPD will go straight into the 1amp equilizing mode...

damm. i hope they come out with a 5 cell version....

also one that can discharge with the +ve on the bottom left in cell#1

I have 2 questions. It's apparent that this does 2 stage discharging. From what I'm reading, the second stage does do individual discharging to the desired cutoff. Does the DPD take this second stage individual discharging into account and adds the results to stage one, giving you the proper math?

Secondly, I use Trinity's R-Minus bullet connectors.

Can this accomodate for the large connectors and still establish good connections with the other cells?

yes it adds stage2 onto stage1. when stage 1 is finished, and you can tell when its done, the fans stops spinning, and if u take off the pack, the runtime/mah are all the same

i use them bulltet plugs aswell, however i use a L-bar and then put the female tube on top. Its just much easier to hold the cell in place, and get better readings
