Do have a question though. WOuld be hard to take a MM charger that has the older style non magnetic temp wire and put on a magnetic version? I imagine it can't be hard at all as long as I can buy the wire leads with the magnetic ends. I can easily open it up and solder it on if that is the way they are connected now?

Everyone have a nice Thanksgiving.

I just put the sensor under the pack when charging or if peaking when it's in the car, I just wedge it between the battery holder and the battery but like the idea of shrinkwrapping a magnet on it...

Jason,

I had this done on my old normal version chargers that I had used for about a year without any problems. I don't think the length have anything to do with it, the wires I use are not even from the Muchmore ones. Go ahead and do it on your chargers, they looked dialed with the black wires!

How do you guys go about oiling the bearings in the fans? The ones on my charger started making this vibrating sound, and it definitely needs some oil.

Has anyone had a problem with the fans staying on all the time? Also how do you program "charge 1" When I try to program the charger it always resets!

It's not a problem, it's a feature

1st speed scale of fans is always on during charge. 2nd speed scale will start when disharging

The fans are running all the time from as soon as I turn the unit on untill I turn the unit off. I am not even charging or hooked up to a battery!

I'm kinda bummed here. I just picked up 2 Mark Rheinard Cellmasters. When I hooked them up the display on one of them went haywire. A quick disconnect and reconnect and the display seems fine but then I charge the first battery on each and the status LED on the same one flickered periodically and eventually went out. What to do?
