I'm doing it as a webpage - might even make it interactive (in due course).

Maybe I could put a little Paypal button on their for racers to donate to my pocket!

OK - first section of my alternative instructions are on the web...

www.v6charger.tk

A bit wordy at present - I'll be looking at ways of breaking it up in the near future, once I've got all the content. I'll even try an interactive "virtual v6" (no guarantee it will ever work though!).

Have a look, tell us what you think.

As an aside... I hate IE6 and coding HTML.

Some of you may know about the IE6 bug where it adds a horizontal scrollbar for no reason.

I just spent the last hour chopping and changing the code to stop the unnecessary scrollbar...

...before realising (after Googling my question) that the .tk website uses a frame which is causing the bug!

My code was right all along!!!!

Anyway, for those that want to view the page without a popup and without the unwanted scrollbar, it's hosted at...

UPDATE:

Just found a quick and dirty fix...

html {
overflow-x:hidden;
overflow-y:auto;
}

For anyone else - put this in your CSS and it will force the page to stay in shape.

So www.v6charger.tk works properly now (except for the popup - but you can block them with some browsers now anyway).

Real nice work Sosidge !

I really like the sentense, where you describe the 5 modes in the beginning. Because the lack of overview is the real bad part about the original.

Maybe a "flowchart"-like overview only including these 5 modes, will clarify things a lot...

Suggestion added to the list!

Oh, and I think I've got rid of the popup too - there is actually an option to do so in the control panel!

does the BOOSTER built-in this unit really worth????

I'm planing to buy this charger due to the high discharge rate, moreover are the other features (charger, peak sensivity, etc) as good as LRP Pulsar, Pitbull, etc??????

Booster is good to wake up cells that are already charged - like if you did them the night before, you can boost them at the race meeting.

Boost won't do anything beyond what a normal charge from flat would do.

It's a very adjustable charger - more than a match for the Pulsar, more features than the Pitbull.

Not that I've tried it, but from what other guys in this forum tells:

20 amp discharge is good for stock, 30 for mod.

I've been told, that if you discharge at 10 or less amps, your packs will loose punch...

Consider this: How often do you discharge and how much? At race meetings, there will be more discharging, but during practise sessions, you often ran the car till it slows down, and this is basically a discharge

Personallt, I race stock, and I'm only at 5 bigger race events pr. year, so I'm mainly discharging the packs while racing. So I choosed to stay at 20 amps. Personally, I also find that this aint too stressing on the batts.

There's 4 ways of battery maintenance:

1) Getting most performance at the cost of life span (sponsored guys).
2) A more mid-way and conservative way, where you aim for reasonably pewrformance and good life-span.
3) Aiming for lifespan, on the cost of performance.
4) No maintenance at all, at the cost of life-span AND performance.

I'm on number 2.

I run 19T and mods.....

I think the 16x7v6 will be better for my purpose....

I was thinking about the 16x5 because it offers the TORPEDO BOOSTING SYSTEM built-in, but if this unit just repeaks your battery I can't see any advantage, the 16x5 can charge up to 7 amps against 6.5 amps charge rate on the 16x7.....the 16x7 can be powered by 110volts too....

what's the cutoff of these units when discharging??????

The 16x5 goes down to 0.8v per cell (not adjustable, but perfectly safe). I expect the x7 is the same.

Default high temps

has anyone compared the charging of the 16x5/16x9 cdc to any other chargers? I have a 16x9v6 and a pitbull and have noticed that for the same delta peak settings the packs temp is higher on the cdc than the pitbull. i judged this with the finger test so not really accurate as i dont have a temp gun. kinda worried of the effect in terms of longevity on the packs with the higher temps reached. all charging settings and conditions are the same on both chargers. I don't notice any difference in track performance either.

i have tried lowering the peak settings but this resulted in less charge put into the packs. is the charging program of the pitbull better? btw the packs are gp3300, both unmatched and matched packs.

this is I'm a little bit afraid of purchase an INDI charger.....I have a LRP Pulsar Competition and I need a better discharging unit, so now I'm thinking about buying the INDI Reactor 30, just to discharge my packs and keep charging my packs with the lrp pulsar.....
