That is correct. The Cell master only does per pack so you may want to turn down the delta peak for 4 cell charging.

Could be the is that the only one? What size power supply are you using? Has it been dropped or damaged at all?

If it is still under warranty I would send it in for repair, hard to say what the problem is and why it is only the C and D, try getting a hold of someone at MMR through their website

Yes all much more LCD's are the same 16x2.

The connectors you will have to unsolder from the old LCD and put on the new LCD....it's really easy to do...

Here is what I use, I dont set any value the capacity (reason, most batts peak alot higher than the # on the side, by setting it at 0 they have a natural peak instead of stopping a at certain #) I set the amps between 5 and 7, Delta peak I set at 14, this setup works really well, I have never had a faulse peak with it.

I set my CTXC at:

6-8 A charge
47-51 temp cut - depends on ambient temp
5000mah capacity
21 peak detect - inside
14 peak detect - outside w/ heatsink

As for step, most tend to stay away from step charging with the new IB's, not 100% sure how it will work with EP cells. When I did use the step feature, I would use it a linear (all three steps the same) which allows the charger to use a very long lock out.

I think he means outdoors (that one caught me offguard too). As for the Punch, it is great.
