Default Integy 16x7

I just recently bought a Integy 16x7 charger. I think it is pretty nice but then again, i know nothing really about chargers.

I am just charging my first battery on it. It is a micro rs4 6 cell 1100 mah pack. I am charging it at .05 amps with a peak detection of 2mv per cell.
(was i suposed to discharge it first???)

During the charge it displays a few things that I don't understand and the instructions are junk! (is it suposed to be turning on those loud fans every 20 seconds?!! )

It says:
215mah 00:25:23
8.785V 0.50A MH

other screen:
Input 15.567
Peak 8.800V

This was during charging. How can the peak voltage be 8.800 when it is a 7.2 volt battery pack? is that what it means. and on the first screen is 215 mah the amount of amperage put into the pack. and on the other screen what is input?

If you can answer these questions it would help a lot.

Thanks

The 16X5 ac/dc and 16X9 ac/dc both have the exact same features. The 16X5 comes as a charger and seperate power supply. The 16X9 has an integrated power supply (and doesnt look as nice as the 16X5).

I'll probably pick up the 16X5 myself, why spend the $10 bucks if you dont any more features. For some the integrated power supply might be a plus, doesnt really matter for me though. Looks like they use the same 14amp supply as well.

Glad I started reading this forum and even happier I went to the Integy site to look at that info. I just bought the 16X5v6BL with the 14a power supply. It should be all that I will really ever need and it was priced fairly. It offers more than the Novak and doesnt cost a whole lot more. It basically has their Torpedo charge function built in to it as well. I'll let you know my thoughts in a couple of weeks when I recieve it (probably actually take 3 weeks to get it out here ). I previously had the Tekin chargers and loved them, shame to see them go. If their speedos were half as good as their chargers they would still be around.

The only difference, would be the black case, and the wires that go to the power supply. They are red / black wires, instead of all black.

In the past, the case was translucent blue, with black wires. You could only tell positive from negative from the wire with the ribbs on it, and the wire without the ribbs. Don't ask me which is which, as i honestly have no clue without digging out my instructions. (my Pitbull stays connected to the N-power, never disconnect )

Unhappy duratrax discharging capabilities

pls allow mi to ask some newbie question on charging batteries. was thinking of getting Duratrax Digital.but then saw on the net that the charger was not meant for charging and discharging sub-C batteries. Said that the discharging rate for the charger(min---2A) was to high for these batteries.

On another website, i saw that the discharging rate for NiMH batteries should not exceed 3C.therefore, a battery of more than
670Mah should be okay to discharge right?Could the different sizes of batteries have different max. discharge rate?

Oso, the charger says that it will stop discharge at 2.6V. If i am not mistaken, its best to discharge Nimh (sub-c size,1.2v) batteries till 0.9V.therefore, (2.6v)/0.9 ~~3 batteries!!!a 3 battery pack??????


could anyone give me some feedback.Thx alot

Thats some pretty wild prices considering CE themselves are selling the Stealth for USD 399.99!!!!

But I guess its a good indication that the GFX is not going to be toooo expensive!
