A good stopping point is around 48 degrees. This is not too cool for racing and not too hot.

The cells will actually raise a little in temp after charging has stopped (up to around 50-51 degrees)

yellow15..

I think.. 42~45degree C is good..

When you race, 45~48degree C is also good.

If you start charge at 25~30degree C,

your Cell Master end charge approximately about 45degree C..

Of course, Stopping temp depends on outside temp.


Sorry for my poor english..

I use the nexus racing profiles when step charging, and adust the last step charging amps for punch as needed. For the liniear charge I put it at 07 or 08 with the lock out on, with a temp cut of 48-49 deg.

1) the orion one looks a copy of this , which one is better and why ?

2) is there any new upto date profiles for the ctx charge for
5mins, 6 cells, GP 3700 ,

3) do the orion profiles work or can they be used on this ?

Higher charging rate=more power, less run-time

NiCD's also like higher delta peak settings. I would start with an 09 or 10 setting.

Additionally, a stick pack has more resistance in its connections. This can cause a false peak, especially in combination with lower delta peak settings, so you will probably want to set a long-lockout for the first 10-15 minutes of charge.
thanks nexus. . . 09 or 10 for the pack or per cell? will this be 0.009 and 0.010 respectively?

I just picked up a integy 16X8 charger. I tried step charging and it seems like my batteries are not taking the MiAh that they did when I charged with a constant amps. Has anyone noticed a drop like this?

Is anyone experiencing problems with just a normal peak charge?
Whenever I use the CTX charge it seems to work fine and my battery packs take a good charge, however if I just use the peak charge it always cuts off at between 500mah - 800mah

I have tested with 15V supply. The Li/Po charger still stop charging at half way. I don't really know what to do anymore.
