Default GFX Question

I just picked up a used GFX, it did not come with instruction so I down loaded off of CE's web site. 12 1/2 pages?? 3 of the pages are legal and service info, they are a waste of paper!

Note to CE: Just stick a piece of paper in the box

" You just paid $400, figure it out for yourself"

My question:
I went to the "set up" mode and loaded several charge profiles, example "PROMATCH6" for my promatch 6 cell 3300's. How do I recall those profiles and select them?

under the "Set Mode"
dial the one you want to load and hit "start/stop"

Another question: A guy at our local track sodered the "volt" leads
to the charger clips. Is there any reason why that cannot be done?

It will not be as accurate...

It will have the voltage drop across the clips....

That would still be about the same..

Most guys ONLY use the small clips when cycling the cells....
They never use them when doing normal charging.

Thanks Tres, with all your help I just may get a
" Lastplace Motorsports" face plate.

The "Tony Williams" checkered flag and flames.

You should only use the small clips when discharging. This allows for a more accurate voltage and Mah readings.
