Default NEW Much-More Silent Charger



Source: http://rcforum.co.kr/news/entry/Muc...erComing-in-Feb

The Silent Charger(referred to as the SC)is a state of the art microprocessor based charger/discharger system for rechargeable batteries for R/C use. With the technology developed by our team of R&D, factory team drivers and world champions, Muchmore introduces the next generation of charger for all R/C drivers. The SC is switching type and can fully charge Ni-MH and Ni-Cd 1 to 14 cells at a digitally presettable amperage up to a maximum 6.0amps using peak detection and temperature limit methods. The SC can charge Litheum battery up to 5 cells. The following features give the SC superior benefits to the other chargers:

Orange back lit LCD with 16x2 characters
An IC controlled cooling fan
Multi protection system
3-3 charge discharge memories
Minimized setup procedure
Automatic saved charge-discharge profile
Capability of charging high voltage batteries by new switching type charge
Temperature probe(Thermo sensor)

Dimensions........................................ ....................124x114x47mm
Weight............................................ .......................................520g
Number of cells(Ni-MH/Ni-Cd)..........................1~14cells ( 1.2~16.8V)
Number of cells(Li-Po)...................1~5cells (3.7/7.4/11.1/14.8/18.5V)
Max charge current........................................... ..................0.1~ 6A
Max discharge current........................................... ..............0.1~ 6A
Dicharge cuttoff voltage..................................Automatic ally selected
Input voltage........................................... ...............................9~15V
Charging mode.............................................. .....Ni-MH, Ni-Cd, Li-Po
Discharging mode.............................................. .Ni-MH, Ni-Cd, Li-Po
Trickle charge rate(after charge)..............................0.1A(Ni-Cd mode)
Voltage threshold/Delta peak...........3mV/cell(Ni-MH), 6mV/cell(Ni-Cd)
Max charge watts............................................. ..................120watts
Max dishcharge watts............................................. .............40watts
Temperature probe...............................Magnetic sensor(35~65deg.C)
Keys.............................................. ..............................................4
Cooling........................................... ...............IC controlled single fan


Muchmore's own false-peak detection algorithm. Temperature probe is equipped.(35~65deg.C selectable)
3user adjustable charge modes: Ni-MH, Ni-Cd, Li-Po up to 6amperes(120watts)
3user adjustable discharge modes:Ni-MH, Ni-Cd, Li-Po up to 6amperes(40watts)
Discharge-Charge mode.

Provides total charged time, peak voltage, capacity(mAh), elapsed time after charge is cutoff.
Total discharged time, elapsed time after discharge is cutoff.
Orange back lit display. Laser state indicator.
Trickle charge after chare Ni-Cd is terminated.

The design is interesting, espicially that option part.

This does not replace Cell Master?

I think it is different charger. Not replacing Cell Master.

It's kind of ironic, really, the Cell Master may be the loudest charger ever created. Looks good though, I dig the docking station thing.

Yeah....
I could do without the docking station if it means getting rid of those banana clips

It looks wierd at the front where they have left the plastic o-ring type thing where the leads come out in the cellmaster. Looks like they are just using the cellmaster case with a few changes. No ctx though

Louder than the CM? Crazy.

The balancer and proper LiPo charging is really nice. Is this MM's final LiPo offering for a while, or is there something else in the works still?

The dock is a neat idea. I wonder if could have been done with a single (proprietary?) plug on the front or side rather than an additional piece that connects to the unit? Not sure you'd need all those connections at once, but being able to buy different kinds of harnesses with different connections would be sort of neat.

The removable temp probe is a nice update.

Yes, but with the temperature probe on the side, where you used to plug in the battery wamer/cooler means that you cannot use those now.

What's the giant green thing poking out of the docking station thing? Did someone sink my battleship?
