It's basically useless for LiPo. It only charges LiPo at 1AMP (max) which will take like 82 years to charge your batteries. Get the Orion Avionics charger, or something that'll do around 5A for cheaper.

I love that my $200 charger would overlook such a useful feature. It's already got the LiPo programming in there, why not bump the charge rate to something useful? Hopefully it's not a marketing ploy, they do have a LiPo charger in the works.

i'd love to know how to do that!

does the CM cut off automatically when charging lipos,
or do we have to wait....and turn them off until capacity is reached?

could be dangerous with such a long wait....distractions etc
then....kapow!

I don't think so. Why, what's wrong with celsius?

The US people over here do not understand the C scale as well. The F scale means more to us.

These formulas might help you guys to convert from C to F there in the US.

Below is the formula to convert a Celsius scale temperature into degrees on the Fahrenheit scale.

Tf = (9/5)*Tc+32; Tc = temperature in degrees Celsius, Tf = temperature in degrees Fahrenheit

Assume that you have a Celsius scale temperature of 100 degrees and you wish to convert it into degrees on the Fahrenheit scale. Using the stated formula, you first multiply the Celsius scale temperature reading by nine-fifths and get a result of 180. Then add 32 to 180 and get the final converted result of 212 degrees on the Fahrenheit scale.

or

To convert from C to F, try these calculations manually.
37 + 40 = 77, and 77 * 9/5 = 138.6. For the final calculation, remove the 40. 138.6 - 40 = 98.6

In summary, add 40, (F to C) multiply by Fraction...(C to F) multiply by the other, subtract 40.

The Celsius temperature scale is still sometimes referred to as the "centigrade" scale. Centigrade means "consisting of or divided into 100 degrees;" the Celsius scale, devised by Swedish Astronomer Andres Celsius (1701-1744) for scientific purposes, has 100 degrees between the freezing point (0 C) and boiling point (100 C) of pure water at sea level air pressure. The term Celsius was adopted in 1948 by an international conference on weights and measures.

Thanks. It would be nice if the charger did that for us though!

Im with Casper, The Metric measuring system me be better when it comes to tools, nuts and bolts, But not temperature!

1.8 X Celcius + 32 = Farinheit

OK, another one....

Do you guys just set your delta peack up and let the temp cutoff take care of stoping the pack? And is the temp prob magnetic? so yo stick it in the crack between 2 of the center cells?

I set my peak to 03, and temp cut to 50. You really don't want the charge to stop on temp. The temp prob is magnetic; just stick it in between two cells. I normally use the middle of the pacfk.
