Got my discharger the other day from our distributer and have tested a litle bit....

I have only tested with old, poor practice batteries.
I got 200-300mah more into the pack during charging and on the track I had more power during the whole run. Especially at the end where I before was just cruising the last minute I had great power.... Almost like when the packs where new!

This is just great, bringing old batteries back to life!!

Just got back from the DHI race, it was some very impressive racing!

The Battery Manager also showed its capabilities again as many racers were using it: A-finalists Andy Moore and Sakke Ahoniemi, as well as Todd Hodge, Simo Ahoniemi, Ben Cosgrove, David Spashett and many others!

Hello Erik,

Have you got info about the ICC ?
This charger charge a 7,2v battery cell by cell or simply 6 single cells (6x1,2v) like a "turbo matcher" ?

I use the BATMAN, it's great !! My old 2000sanyo are alive !!!

Thx from france

Bastien

So does this have a fixed cut off of 0.85V per cell or is it adjustable?

don't know why some guys are so worried of lower cutoff settings.......


at a higher load, 0.05v or even 0.1v mean nothing but 2 or 3 seconds....it would really matter at lower amps.......

but definetly doesn't hurt any pack when discharging at 20amps or more......

Hello Bastien,

Yes, the I.C.C. will charge a 7.2V pack (6 cells soldered in series). Each cell has its own delta-peak and temperature cut-off system.

Hi Erik,

Just one more indication concerning the ICC charger : does it effectively cut the charge current for each cell or just monitoring each cells ?

I mean for example you cut the charge current on cell #3 of the pack while others cells still charging ? If yes, does it mean that you trully have 6 individuals charger (or act exactly like this) ?

What is the power supply ? AC ou 12V DC ?

Thank you for answering all my questions ;-)

Hi buzzbusy,

Yes, it cuts the current for each cell individually. So for example, cells #1, 2, 4, 6 could still be charging while #3 and 5 are already cut off (no current).

It is exactly like having 6 individual chargers, although the technology behind it is a bit more complex than just this.

It will work on any regular 12V DC power supply that can deliver the current that you want to charge at (I suggest a minimum of 6 amps power supply).

It sounds very promising!

One suggestion thoughm make a new thread for the ICC

Also, what will be (an estimation will be fine) it's price and when its due?

Mum.......

For the BatMan, everyone did study basic electronic show knew that the term "Power". Power is the equal to Current x Time. So, for a linear discharger, for example, discharge at 35amp for 10 sec, the power is 350W. For the BatMan, the power may only be 35 x 5 = 175W. This is the mistake. When we talk power, we always talk Average power, not instanteous power. I can make a discharger which can discharge at 100Amp for 0.01sec and rest for 10sec, am I right ?

Also, the so called "Cool-flex", in my knowledge, it is just a PWM controller discharge......nothing special !!


BTW, I.C.C. is very interesting......I just want to know will it take the same amount of time to charge a pack of 6 cells with the ordinally charger.

But the time of charge could be longer than original "charge style" ? no ?
