hey guys,

is there a way to change the discharging cutoff voltage? The charger brings the lipos down to 6v pretty fast and would want a safer 6.4v. Is this possible?

TIA!

my silent charger would bring down 2s packs to 5.60v. I think its the same for the legend. Never really noticed, but yeah, am pretty disappointed that we can't raise the cutoff... Oh well...

Have any of you used both the Orion Pro Spec charger and the MM Legend? Which do you think is a better charger?

Just received my cell master today,and what a piece of equipment it is!just a quick question about the fans.when I turn the charger on they start spinning but they stop when I start charging.is it supposed to be normal?the charger gets quite warm to the touch without the fans kicking in.I'm used to an ice charger wich runs cooler (no pun intended)

I just got my new Legend charger today, and I test charged a few packs to see how it works.

When I turned on the charger, it says firmware version 1.16. Have you seen firmware version newer than 1.16?

No, 1.16 is the latest version of the software.

One of the bigger disappointments is that there are no storable profiles.
I keep having to change charging parameters every time I plug in a different battery.
