I received this great information from Ryan Lee a little while ago. It explains why we use lower delta peak settings on the Cell Master compared to other chargers:

it may cause "False peak" if you set low delta peak with other charger.
But, as u can see, with 3mV setting (0.5mV per cell), CM does not make False peak.
And we always recommend 3~6mV on CM's instruction. because lower delta peak value make loger life for your batteries.
We don't want to hurt our customer's battery.

But for race, the story goes different.
Every serious driver want punch.
Warm battery(43~48degree C) after charging make punch as u know.
So we increase delta peak value.(10~24mV)
Compare to other chargers, the value still seems low.

If you want to compare two kinds or chargers,
you need exact Amp(current) meter and volt meter.
Many other chargers cheating their charging amp(or their calibration is not exact)
Even if it shows 5A on the display, it may be 4.5A or so.
Cell Master charges at actual amp as it set to.

And Eagle CDC series, Integy charger, Quasar etc. has charging pattern as below.

55sec charging,
5sec stop charging
55sec charging
5sec stop charging...
...

Above charging way can decrease temperature but can't expect punch.

16bit AD and super linear current can make 3mV deltapeak cut off.

Default ib3600,s only going to 2900mah

Just wondering if any one can tell me why my 3600s only charge up to around
2900mah. they have only been used 8-10 times each and are always discharged to 5.4 arfter every run. ive tried peek charging and step charging as per manual.they seem to always cut out around 2900mah-9.3volts.
Regards:Andrew.

After charge, check the temperature of cell.
If they are not enough warm, charge them again with Peak charge mode.
After charge, temperature should be around 42~50degree.

Higher deltapeak value also will help.
Please try 10mV ~ 16mV.

And make sure keeping good contact between alligator clips and your battery.
This s very important.

Thank you,

Andrew j Do you discharge the cells individually down to zero before charging. If not that could be the reason for low mah numbers!

What is the difference between this charger and the Orion advantage? Are they one and the same? I would like to get this charger but the Orion is more accessible to me.

www.hobbyx.com in Sydney, Australia is the official distributor of much more products. Might be worth giving them a ring.

Thumbs up

I just received my today! Have read instruction manual and charged one 3700pack. All what I can say about it- that’s the best thing what you can buy for that price! Very impressive!

Default Questions on the CTX mode

Finally got a Cell Master

I am discharging my batts to 0 Volts using the DS feature of the Novak Smart tray and used solder across the terminals and store them deadshorted for days.
My question: Is it safe to connect the charging terminals on the batts while the solder is still on and leave it until a minute of charging using the cell master ? the reason I want to do this is that I dont want the cells to recover voltage right away becasue as soon as you remove the solder the volts will increase.Let me know your thoughts?

CE!

I should be ok as long as you don't start charging as you will get an error message.

Danjoy, I will start charging and plan to leave the solder there for about a minute or so so the cells won't recover.

I have done this on the GFX and remove the solder after 3 seconds of charging but on my T35 Stealth I will get an " AMP set too low " error message. And want to know if anyone have tried this method on their Cell Master.

Thanks.

CE!
