Can someone compare using a tray discharger (like the Integy Zero-Thirty) to this? I understand this will give me more data but will it do a better job conditioning my packs? Thank you.

What the Spintec does is totally different from a tray. The tray will equalize the cells to a certain voltage or just down to zero so that they are all at the same level when you charge it back up. The Spintec decrystallizes your cells through the pulse-discharging, so it's like maintenance-zapping your cells (without the risk of blowing them, lol)
For best performance/conditioning, you would use the Spintec then put the batteries on the tray.

Hello all!

Yellow15, we are at the moment testing the prototypes of a 4 cell Battery Manager. Final version is still not known, but yes it will be for 4, 6 and 7 cell packs. It will also have some additional features, but for now obvious reasons I can not tell yet. Not sure yet when it will be available, expect early next year.

micros_rock, sure 50 amps no problem
Probably in a few years don't be surprised that will be the new standard though...

lotus1, you're right about changing connectors. Readings may be different to others, so comparing is not really possible. But your own readings might be more consisting if the connection is better. There is no risk of damaging the unit.

PomAbroad, to our experience you will gain voltage AND runtime. There will be definitely no loss of runtime.

Itchy, hope your chassis still works
Patenting something like this is difficult and expensive unfortunately. The only thing we can do is stay ahead by innovation, quality products and excellent customer service.

beer_drinker and litespeed_dom, the 'other' unit is not similar to the Spintec device. We have not given other companies access to our technology, so I do not know if it will function the same way.

Do you choose for innovation or imitation... that's the question

Thanks.For me I think my own consistent readings are more important.Ithink I can always "compare" by using the improvement differences that many post.Tahnks again,Mario.

So far...after cycling the batteries about 2 time.....each packs are average 2-300 mah more charge then before........and 1 of the matched pack, I ended up having a 3986 mah charge from my Reedy charger reading (on a 3300 mah packs almost 1.5 years old).......that was happened 4:15am, and I am not sure I read that correctly, but I did read that several times........
I know the spintec does works.........I just need the real race feedback (not just the cycling process), Sunday seems like years away...

P.S.......all the SPINTEC data reading after discharging are average 3700-4100mah, 380-420s, IR 30-50, on my almost 2 years old GP 3300 matched cells, sounds a little bit too good, so I don't really concern about how accurate of those #, just wrote them down as reference.....I only trust the final charged reading (MAH) on the charger...

GOOD just do it consistently. that way you can compare your data.

I'll go for innovation. I'm looking forward to the new model that does 4, 6, and 7 cells.

Eric, its bad luck that you couldn't get this patented, but at least everyone who ever talks about pulse dischargers will think 'Spintec'

Erik,

Just please patent the ICC before Trinity and Duratraxx take advatage of your design and innovation.....I think everyone who buys one of the Dyno junk...will realize that the originator of the had it done right to begin with....Plus Trinity also made enough changes that I think they could have gotten it through the lawyers and not been copyright infringing anyway....
Funny how all you have to do is change like three things and it doesn;t fringe...LOL....
I am more worried that Trinity will copyright it and try to force you out of the market....And well know they have the power...
SO with the ICC make it impossible to copy...get the whole thing including the software patented...it will be worth it...
Just my two pennies....I just don't want to see them push you out....
