Default Much More Cell Master and Li-Po charging

I picked up a Cell Master to do Li-Po and although I haven't got the Carbon pack yet, when I go to the program for Li-Po, I can't get the charge # above 1.0 amp in the 2 cell setting. I can't see any change for one or three cells either, so I don't think it's a preset per cell count. But what do I know !!

Is this how it is or am I missing something ?

Help please.

Jacko

Default cell master

Unfortunately, the cell master is not a good lipo charger for any lipo over 1000ma. It will charge any lipo, but at 1.0A max, you will be waiting a long time to recharge your battery (the 3200 orion lipo will take 2 hours after a touring sedan, stock motor run.)

If you race lipo and want a cheap charger, get the orion avionics advantage lipo charger. It costs $30 new and will charge lipo's at 3.0 amps.

If you want to buy a charger that will do everything, get a used ice charger for about $80. It will do lipo up to 8.0 amps.

Good luck.

Thanks Bill, I bought a pup (even though it's a great charger)
