You could always use two chargers to charge the same pack so you can get a high enough current.

I just wanted to give mad props to James at Much More for the awesome Customer Service! The On/Off button on my Power Master had popped off and he immediately sent me a replacement switch.

I am a firm supporter now and keep up the good work.

I would use the same 3300 profile on the NEXUS site but change the cell setting from 6-7. The charge profile should not change for additional cells.

Nexus (or anyone),

Are there any potential problem with setting the mah high enough to charge a 4200 pack and use the same mah setting to charge a 3800 pack?

I don't think that there would be, since the pack is only going to hold what its rated for.

The reason I ask is I'd like to set a profile to charge...
1. 4200 4 cell
2. 3800/3300 6 cell
3. 4200 & 3800/3300 (4/6 cell) pack for storage at 600 mah

I just don't want to cook any battery packs.

Thanks,
E

EricF-
There isn't a problem for setting the mah high for both especially for IB3800's and IB4200's assuming you want the voltage dropback and amprage to be the same. I would recommend using the temprature probe on the pack (especially the 3800's) to make sure it doesn't get too hot.
I would be concerned about setting a charging profile for both 4cell and 6cell. You don't want to charge a 4cell pack on a 6cell setting or vice versa.

Eric,
We pretty much leave ours set to 5000 to prevent a capacity cut. Like Andrew said, this will allow you to utilize your temp and delta peak settings for peaking.
For storage charge, we set the capacity cutoff to 450-500 at 6.0amps.

Thanks guys. Actually the charger will not charge a for cell pack if its set for 6 cell. It gives a low cell error message.

Any recommendations on the temp setting? I currently have it set at 42*. I race at an indoor track with inside temps in the low 80's high 70's.

Thanks,
E

48 (~118 deg F) is a good temp cutoff for GP and IB cells for optimal power and safety. You want a little room on the peak temperature, because the cells' temp will rise a little after peaking.

hey rcmart is great for cheap stuff, but dont expect prompt warranty service. its the risk i have accpeted to take when buying from Overseas. Hopefully teammuchmore on this forum can help... otherwise here is a little trick. do you have a friend that bought his one locally? if so get your friend to take it back to the store he bought it from
