I hope this is not a silly question but if I'm looking for 3mv peak detect per cell do I set the charger value to 18mv for a six cell pack

There is currently no v2.0...

The input value for delta peak on the CM is for the entire pack. For value per cell, divide the input value by the # of cells (06=6mV per pack=1mV per cell).

Keep in mind that the CM utilizes lower delta peak values than other chargers. If you set a .03 on a Turbo 35, you will probably set around a .006 (06 setting) on the CM. For a detailed explanation of why this is true, see our article here:
Delta Peak and Super Linear Current on the Cell Master

Any time you tray/dead-short a battery, or if it has been stored for an extended period, it is more likely to false peak.
The CTX mode is locked against delta peak in its first two phases, so no long lockout is neccessary. If you use the regular peak charge mode, set the long lockout up to 10-20 minutes. Any false peak after 20 minutes would be due to a bad connection or bad cell.

Im having problems charging with the Cell Master I can charge 1-2 packs (3300s) then with the next pack I put on to charge it stops half way through, I get an error message "low vol". Im using a 12v car battery as my powersupply, maybe the car battery is stuffed?? Are other people using 12v car batteries?? This even happens after the car battery has been charged over night. Thanks in advance for the input.

yah.. sounds like your car battery is running out of juice. pick up a power supply. Much more, radio shack and pyramid has some that do 20amps at 13.5v more than enough to power two chargers.

if you can afford it.. get the much more racing one. it comes in 3 different trick colors. LOTS OF BLING!

here's a thread where different supplies are discussed and where to shop for them: http://www.rctech.net/forum/showthread.php?t=62995

No, the fan IS necessary, without it the charger will overheat. I believe it is temperature controlled anyway.

hi was wondering what the muchmore battery heatsink is for? is it used for charging? coz i thought a warm battery was good for batteries when it is charging, hence we have battery warmers?

Heat is only good up to point. You will usually use the battery heatsink on very HOT days in order to anticipate the heat

Another reason is because it looks cool
