Default Victor

If anyone has a Victor charger ( IQ, IQ2, IQ3, IQ 3000) and discharges at 30 amps you would know how hot it gets and you would need to run some fans. Which fans did you use ( 5" fans, CPU fans, etc.)? How many did you use? Where did you mount the fans on the charger? How did you mount the fans on the charger? How many times do you cycle/discharge/charge your batteries in a row? Any pictures would be cool.

If have a pretty good idea, thanks to Bradley, but I would just like to hear from other people and which methods made their chargers run cooler.


Thanks


Michael Ignacio

You can probably ask the webmaster of this site. http://www3.telus.net/capris/

Thanks, Kenshin, but there is no e-mail address on the website. Do you know Sam's Workbench's e-mail address?

M Ignacio - Here you go. His new website. There are some plans on how to build a discharger that uses a large resistor and a small fan. It takes the heat away from the Victor. Hope this helps
