How did you come up with those calculations ?

So, when I set my Pulsar peak detect to 3mv - meaning that it'd be .02 on my T35 ?

Wait a minutes, I begin to understand what you mean.
3mv on Pulsar charger - that figure covers one single cell.
.02 on T35 would cover a whole pack ?


Say that I'm charging my GP3300 - what values should I set on the T35 ? I've been charging my GPs at 5amps, .03, Peak1 with Long Lockout. With Pulsar, the figures are 5 amps, and 3 mv.

Correct me if I'm wrong.

On another note, what's a good setting for NiCd 2400's? I've been doing 6A and 24mv peak. Thanks

Ok there is 2 settings that can be confused, per cell and for the whole pack. When I say 3 mv per cell, that s 18 mv for the whole pack(6 cells).02 peak rounded for the whole pack. I use 12mv per cell for nicd's which is 72 mv perpack(.07)

3X6=18mv per whole pack(.02 rounded)
5X6=30(.03)
8X6=48(.05 rounded)

U just take the mv per cell, and multiply by the number of cells to get the whole packs peak.

Default Pulsar setting

Guys,

The threshold adj. for Lrp pulsar is 05, 10, 15 and so
on. So wen I set my 6cell pack at 05 it means I'm setting
it a a little over 48mv ? Am I right or is the setting of the
Pulsar per cel, therfore I should set it at 40 or 50?

The Pulsar gives the readings in mV per pack (not per cell), here's the difference between CE's reading and LRP's:

CE --------- LRP Pulsar
0.01 ------ 10mV
----- ------ 15mV
0.02 ------ 20mV
----- ------ 25mV
0.03 ------ 30mV

And so on... So basically the CE chargers show in 10mV steps, which is actually 0.010V (or 0.01 how they display it).

Good settings for the cells you asked for on the Pulsar are:

gp 3300's --> 5-6A / 15-25mV
sanyo 3300's --> 6A / 20-30mV
sanyo 3000's --> 6A / 25-35mV
panasonic 3000's --> 5A / 10-20mV
sanyo 2400's --> 6-7A / 60-80mV

Hope that is of some help.
