Default Q's for those with Integy 16x9 v6 Charger

When I charge it in turbo mode, it'll finish and it'll sound the alarm after the charge... But if I just charge it in regular mode, on the screen it has a C then a few spaced then DL but the pack is hot and it doesn't sound the alarm... Is it something I need to configure? I'm really lost with this thing, the instructions are pretty lame as far as helping you with the read-outs on the screen.

Thanks!

go to the program set up & in there you will find the `delay time repeak`, there is not a delay repeak in boosting mode(turbo)
charge mode there is 4 setups
1)normal
2)fuzzy logic (don`t use)
3)partial charge(for storing cells with partly charge)
4)boosting (which i use for racing applications only)

At this stage, the pack has peaked and are waiting for the repeak. As Jolly said, you can go to the user program mode and set the repeak delay time to 0 minutes. Then the pack will just charge normally and the alarm will sound.

Only use Boosting/Turbo on charged packs, which have cooled totally down. That is, at least one hour, better with two.

If your packs are burning hot, you should set it to a lower delta cut off. For GP3300 5-8 mV pr. cell usually is good (with a charge rate of 5-6 amps).

Never ever charge a warm pack.

So do you all know what the Boosting mode actually does to the battery pack? I use it most of the time if I have a cold pack and just charge it that way. Just curious what it actually does to the cells.


Thanks,
J

Boosting mode discharge the pack partial, and afterwards it do a normal peak charge.

I dont know how much it discharge (havent watched it), but I believe it's a certain percentage of the typed in capasity. It charges and sicharges at the set parameters.

So if the pack is almost discharged, it'll be the same as a fuzzy logic charge.

Boosting mode is only intended for cold packs, which already is fully charged.
