I don't know if excessive heat will really effect the Smart Tray that much. I was discharging some batteries with a bit of charge in it and the ambient temperature was 34 degrees. It was baking, but it was all good.

ya alittle heat it fine, and if you do put a pack on that has alot of charge and the heatsink in the back gets hot you should let it cool alittle until next pack. But i have never had a problem yet.

You should tray your packs before charging so they get its full charge, I usually tray,charge,run, and then either discharge or put them away until next time and then discharge and tray before charge again.

Thanks guys!, thats what i did, i left what charge was in them after the races from the week before, then discharged the packs down to 5.4 the day before race, on my quasar pro, then an hour before each heat trayed them, and then charged them.

battery prep is the key people!

i failed to prepare my cells last race meet due to a night out the day before and didn't finish a heat without my packs dumping. i run a brushless and this never happens. discharge the night before on the novak tray down to 0.1 then get to the track early and charge the packs on the day there, then peak them 5 minutes before.... perfect packs.

No, Have a read of the instructions on the box and this thread. Either solder connectors on the pigtail to connect to a 12v power supply or pick up a 12v power pack to power the unit at home.

All the International version Smart Trays are supplied with a pigtail rather than a (useless outside the USA) 110VCD Power Pack. But thats all on the box...

Yep, I picked up the International Version (#4501) from Singapore, and the input plug attached to that pigtail wire will NOT fit into the plug on the right hand side of the tray.

Does anyone else have this problem, and what did you do to fix it ?
