Please check the fuse inside. one is 250V 5A and the other is 20A (car type). Hope this helps.

some power supplys had to switch from 220v to 110v
Instructions for alternating between 220V and 110V input.

"The following is for information only and should only be carried out by a qualified electrician and is NOT approved by the manufacturer or distributor

1. Unplug unit from mains supply and leave for at least 2 hours. Remove 4 screws from outer cover. Locate grey jumper lead fixed to 220V pin.


2. Take care not to touch any other components. Remove grey jumper lead from 220V pin.


3. Re-locate grey jumper lead to 110V pin."




4. Replace four screws and secure outer case.

if this products was sold under MuchMore Racing LTD(North American MuchMore) we are more then happy to take them in and try fix it if we can't fix it, we will send you new one if the product was not miss used or abused.

Power Supply sold under US branch of MuchMore is already Adjusted to 110V.

Only Version of MuchMore power supply we sold is world edition. if it is regular MM powersupply it didn't came from us.

I personally did the Quality Control for each unit of power supply sold by our branch. every single one of them were turned on and provided right voltage.


thanks

James Kim

I agree with "Guo Chean"
My charger and power supply from tfb are good!
I love them a lot.

LUCK

Step 3
2550-4200 mAh 6 amps

Peak 3mV per cell, Temp 50C, Max mAh 4200.

Temp at 50C? so I think step charging provides cooler charging process then.
Alan,

For the delta peak, it says 3mV per cell so I have to set it at 8mV for a 6 cells pack? Doesn't Much More recommand 3mV for the whole pack?

Does step charging work with stick packs? Specifically six cell spec packs.

There is no reason why it wouldn't. Depending on the type capacity of the spec cells, you'll have to adjust your profile. You have to be sure the pack will peak in step 3. If it does not, the battery will overcharge in step 1 or 2, and hurt the battery. If it is a NiCd, you could also take advantage of the flex charge feature.

All spec packs are NiCd 1600MaH,how would you set up a step charge profile for these?

It's definitely something that would need to be played with a bit, but it could also be a great action that you could take do to get an extra edge in a spec class.

I would probably start with something like this:

Step 1
1150 7amp
flex on

Step 2
1200 .3amp
flex on

Step 3
2400 4amp
flex on
delta peak cutoff .06
temp cutoff 52 (125 deg Fahrenheit)

I would recommend to use the flex feature in all stages. My experience -though limited- with NiCds has shown that they like to be flex charged. There used to be many that would flex thier 1500 packs in a spec class at my old track.
