I've just acquired 3 packs of Orion's IB4200s WCe ....

I was wondering how you guys charge them? Is step charging good for long life of the cells or just charge with linear?

Thanks in advance

Also, keep your temp cut around 48-49 deg C, as your batteries will be gaining heat even after charge.
Got it , I assume I then want the temperature of the battery to sit at around 48-49? Also do you have in mind what settings I should run on the GP4300's?

I have heard that it is just a cosmetic change, however I have heard some people say that they have done an upgrade to the charging software. I stand corrected.

Got the standard, I have placed an order for 2x MR Cell Masters, you looking at around $140 for the standard edition, $180 for the limited.

Here in South Africa, everybody swears by the Supernova Competition. I have had one, and thought it was the biggest load of junk this side of the equator. I love the Cell Master, it has so much functionality and is worth every cent. Not to sound like a wannabe, but if most of the top 10 in the world use the Cell Master, it has to say something about the product and quality.

thats b'cause companies like duratrax and supernova dont sponser racers. anyway what was wrong with the supernova? i dont think the celmaster has anything over the supernova other than its smaller footprint.

Screen would hang on mode change, it would shut down from overheating even though it was outdoor (not direct sunlight) and was about 26 degrees. Temperature sensor was out by +-10 degrees.

I took it in for repair/exchange only to get a report from the distributor saying that unit was in perfect condition!

anyone try using their cell master to "condition" their cells (using 1A discharge to .9V on each cell individually)? seems to be more accurate than using the CTX-D, though a bit tedious to do.

Why do you think the cell master is more accuate then the CTX-D? It should have the same cutoff accuracy if not better then the cell master. Also that would take forever to discharge each cell down at 1A. If you think 5 amps is too high then get a smart tray. It equalizes at 2.7amps.
