Default CE Turbo 35 GFX Help Needed for Setup

Ok just got a Turbo 35 GFX Charger I am charging the following packs:
3500mAh 6 Cell Packs
4200mAh 4 Cell Packs
4300mAh 4 Cell Packs
1600mAh 4cell Spec Packs

Can some one help me with optimum settings for charging screen discharge screen and cycle screens for each of these packs. I figure a 6 amp charge and 30 amp discharge would suffice however would be interested in what other setting need to be.

Cool I figured it out also downloaded and printed 62 page manual. Do you think it is worth sending it in to get firmware upgraded from the 1.4 to 1.6 ?

I did not see in your original message what type of battery you are chaarging. NiMH take a lower pesk detect than NiCD. Refer to the manual for help. I have different setup on my GFX for the different types of batteries.

On your Spec packs, if you are running outside, charge at 5 amps with a .03 peak detect. For carpet, charge at 7 amps with a .03 peak detect. Discharge at 15 amps with a .90 per cell cutoff (3.60 volts.)

You also need to get a single 1157 automotive bulb, and discharge the battery with that after discharging it on the GFX. Take the bulb off as soon as it starts to go out, and go straight to charging.

Hope this helps!

Jack
