Default cell Master Legend

I just received my cell master legend charger and it's very sweet. Can someone tell me how to save a Li-Po set up in the charger so I don't have to keep entering the same info each time I want to charge?

Thanks,
JG

The charger remembers the last known charge setting

You shouldnt have to keep setting it!

I love the form factor... Nice, clean, and it leaves you with an auxillary power port to hook up your other RC junk...

I love it... Especially the black one, that looks sleeeeeeeeeeeeek...

Rc Mart shows them in stock. RC Market says they are getting them in every 2 weeks but they are going to fill the backorders.

How is everybody getting on with there chargers? Does the charger take a time to ''ramp'' up to your preset amperage or does it start at that straight away for lipo charging?

I finally received my blue Legend charger today from RC Market, and that is the first thing I am going to test. Right now I am discharging 2 packs.

When charging does it take time to ramp up to full amperage or does it start right away at the selected amperage.

No ramp up in normal charge mode.

Not totally understanding Race charge mode (lipo only) This is what the manual says:
"This mode will make LiPO 8.4V (fully charged) condition until running. If you increase VL value, battery final voltage will keep high. *Give suitable VL value after many testing."

Also, it seems my Lipo auto balance mode does not work? I have a .05v difference between cells in one of my Reedy 5A packs. It will sit there for 20min and only drop the high cell .01v.....

The Race charge mode 1-5 with take the voltage a step higher. Normal mode is 8.40. Race mode 1 is 8.42, 2 is 8.44, 3 is 8.46, etc up to 8.50 on race mode 5.

Kinda weird they included that but at least they made it where you can charge to a "Normal" and legal voltage. One thing I have found is that the Legend is super accurate to charge voltage too. Its exactly what it says it is when checking it on a high end Fluke meter.
