can the 16X5 charge reverse pulse like in the millenium to lower the internal resistance?

I've got a 16x5 and I'm happy with the job it's doing, but one thing bothers me. The 16x5 automatically goes into a 150mah trickle charge once the battery peaks. I've been hearing that it's not a good idea to trickle a pack, jsut peak it, and repeak right before the run.

I'd sure like to disable the trickle on the 16x5, but there's no option for it. I called Integy to ask, they told me to just unplug the pack right after it peaks if I don't want it to trickle. That would be fine, but sometimes I'm marshaling when a pack finishes, I might be on the driver's stand running another class, etc. I don't like the idea of being chained to the charger. I hope they'll come up with a software update or something to address this, cause other than this one issue I REALLY like this charger.

Has anybody heard how well the 16X9 works? I was checking out the integy website and was thinking of getting one.

I got my 16x9 once it was availble.

It's a great charger, charges up to 6000mah. built in fan and all. Also you are able to hook up additional chargers fromt he outlet from the back. And the best thing is that it doesn't have to be a Integy charger, you can hook up any charger you want to the outlet. Up to 14amp total drain from the built in power supply. The size of the charger is reasonable, too. It's a bit smaller than the turbo 35.

Does your 16x9 automatically go into a 150ma trickle charge once the battery peaks?

Thanks TRF.. I was going to ask how big it is compared to a turbo 35. But I guess you already answered my question already. One other question though... How much did you pay for it? Or do you know what the going price is now?

TRF, does your charger go into Pause mode (overheat?) when discharging packs @ 20A? I.e. From a full 2k/3k pack all the way down to 5.x volts?

Also, do you know how to set the discharge voltage level? With 6 cells it discharges all the way to 4.8 volts (i.e. 0.8v per cell) and I am thinking this is dangerous.

Regards,
Alvin

As far as I know, the charger doesn't go into trickle charge right after full charge. You can set the minutes for it to repeak again after the first full charge.

The charger come with instruction manual that tells you about the discharge voltage per-cell depend on your batteries capacity. just follow the instruction. The charger has never overheated on me. I raced one week with unbareable heat outdoor but the charger is running warm, never hot. The built in fan is a great help.

It's a great charger, even though it doesn't do any motor dyno job.

Next time you charge a pack, jsut watch the charger. Once the pack peaks, look at the charger screen and see if the amp reading is around 150ma. My 16x5 always does this and the 16x9 is supposed to be the same as the 16x5 only with an internal power supply.

Are you certain the 16x9 lets you set a time for a an automatic repeak? Again, the 16x5 doesn't do this, and they are supposed to be functionally the same. IF you're referring to the after charge delay setting, that only controls how long the charger will wait after charging to start discharging in cycle mode on the 16x5, it should be the same on the x9.

Maybe I got some wrong info and the 16x9 is different than the 16x5, but it was the owner of Integy who said they're the same on the Integy BBS.

Thanx for any info,

Trips

Trips,

I think you are right. I'm not too sure about that trickle charge thing you are talking about. I just got that charger last week. haven't had a lot of time to play around with it.


I am going to race this weekend, I will pay more attention about the charger, and give you an accurate report as to how the charger functions.
