I’ve got the CTX .. still the best charger for nimh, imho.
Very frustrating that it couldn’t and still cannot charge lipo (based on this platinum ed) within reasonable time limit.

And one of the reasons they came out with the Silent Charger was to handle lipo better. It can charge 1-5 cells up to 5amps.

Since it's just software I'm going to inquire about upgrading my pair of blue chargers to the latest rev.
The original CM has V1 software. The only difference between the Platinum Charger and CM appears to be the black LCD.

Great charger for NiMH...not very useful for Li-Po. The Li-Ion charge function only goes up to 1 amp, and the CC/CV charge is 4.1v/cell (suitable for Li-Ion) instead of 4.2v/cell (Li-Po standard). It will not fully charge any Li-Po.

If you want to have a inverted lcd screen just flip the polarizing filter over and it will be the display will be inverted.

Walleymonds,

Sounds easy, but........

The LCD panel is made of glass and placed just on it is a transperent plastic sheet. That is usually the polarizing filter. I have done this before on digital watches, clocks etc but I dont have a cell master. However, the idea is the should be the same.

In order to flip this filter, the LCD screen has to be taken apart. Just be carefull ome LCD screen connects to the circuit board by a strip of rubber like stuff with carbonised lines. Just be careful not to disconnect it or remove it at all.

OM

Default PT-CTXC

Just to clarify, the Platinum Edition Charger uses the same improved LCD screen hardware as the Blue/Purple Limited Edition CTX-C chargers and will replace the black version of the CTX-C which has been available for a few years now.

The software/menu features on the CTX-C, Blue/Purple Limited Editions and the Platinum Edition is the same.

Hope this helps.

Thanks,

Keith.
