You will get an error on your GFX as well,I think CE has an update that let's you charge from zero.

Peak charging from 0 volts might false peak as the voltage is too low and does not have the locked out function the step charging has.

If you're suggesting that you want to start charging a battery pack that is wired permanaently into a short circuit, that is not something I would recommend at all. In fact it could be very dangerous.

This profile is from Ryan Lee. He set this for a couple people in 19T class at the Reedy 2005. And I found out this was very good for 19T class at the Reedy.
Question, IS this for GP3300 or GP3700

We where using this profile for 3300's. Once you use it you will be impressed the way the batteries run.

Hi Cell Master Owners!!!!

I will be charging my first Lipo pack soon on the Cell Master, its a 3 cell, is there anything special I should know or setup on the charger before I charge the Lipo?

Now that I will be charging Lipos it makes me love this thing even more, actually I wouldnt have tried Lipos if I didnt a have the Cell Master

Thanks!!

Default Zero delta peak

CTX CHG mode has Long Locked Out function.
You will see double key marks on the screen if you push the start button and hold for few second.

20minutes LLO works fine always,
According to my test,
Most false peak after 20minutes are caused by bad contact or in case some shock interrupted.(dropping you wrench etc.)

Zero-delta peak has algorithm which terminates charging if batteries' voltage stay for 7 seconds.
It will prevent overcharging, would not hurt your expensive batteries.

Low charging amp or cell no. may cause false peak.

Thanks,

Ryan

Capacity compared with other chargers

I am new to CTX cell master.While testing ,I found the charger seems to have lower charging capacity compared with my Lrp pulser competition.
Guys,what about your cell master charger?Will you have the same situation?

Gallagher, the Cell Master is actually more precise on the amount of capacity your cells are taking.The LRPs dont calculate the mahs the same way and are not as acurate, its normal to see a 200\400mah difference depending on the chargers...

So dont worry its normal, actually will soon realize how much the Cell Master is better compared to the LRP, I know I had both
The LRP isnt a real super linear charger like the Much more

One thing you need to know when you use lipo.

USE THE LIPO MODE TO CHARGE LIPO

Well said, Master Lee

I wonder what will happened if someone try to CTX charge the LiPo

Hi,

Thanks for the reply, I got the PCM guard to charge my Polyquest 1800 but it doesnt work when I use it with the Cell Master, is it normal?

I can charge the pack fine without the PCM guard though.BTW, the PCM is a little device thats in between the charger and the pack, it balances the voltage of eatch pack to avoid an unmatched pack, it prevents from over charging too

Thanks!

As tbevofreak said these chargers are accurate. On my Lrp's I would get anywhere from 3800 to 4100 mahs charged into the batteries. Mind you I dead short. With the cell master in ctx mode I'll get just about the same on the lower side. 3800 to 3900.
Though when I charge four cell packs on regular peak charge(none ctx) I'll get 3300 to 3700 mah in. I discharge the cells on a zero discharger before charging. Thus the batteries will have more punch and have longer run time. Dont think your batteries are falling off. The chargers and power supply have the cleanest voltage you'll ever use. This truely is linear.
The performance shows on the track.

Default repeak??

Thanks for the replies. I will try more times.
Guys, do you have easier way to repeak a charged battery?
I reset long lock out time to 0 min and enter an uncertin battery capacity every time.It's annoying.
I wonder is there any bettery way to repeak(not to repeak right after the battery is charged )?
Thanks.
