I think the Npower only has 10AMPs. You might need to upgrade your powersupply. I have a MuchMore Worlds Edition 20 AMP and it works great

How do you guys like the aps dyno for those of you that have 'em? Are they as accurate as the other 'professional' whatevers?

I have had mine for a few months now. Works great, puts a good charge in the battery. I've used the other features like RPM and Motor test a few times and they all seem to work as good as my GFX and Indi Dynov2 did. I also used the step charging a few times. I always have the temp probe on just to make sure the batteries are staying consistent. All in all I'm very happy with it and would get another one.

My only somewhat complaint is the way the buttons are but it really doesn't bother me much if any.

Hope this helps!

Has anyone found the aps to be voltage sensative.... Im running 3 chargers at one time (ce ps at first now a 36 amp integy ps) and I find that when input voltage dips around 12.5v the aps goes into low supply..... Could mine be defective?????? my other chargers work fine... gfx and pulsar2....

Yeah mine does too. It even does it when running off a car battery. It goes well to start with but as soon as the battery voltage drops a little it cuts out.
Its even worse when charging ni-cds

I have the earlier version.

It drives me nuts

I think these things need a good positive power source with at least 13.5v.

Other than this I really like mine I just wish it wasnt so fussy.

It is a bit on the finiky side when voltage gets low. Best guess i have is that the charger is designed to not pull as many asmps as you are putting into you pack / motor. I guess the transformer is causing it to be finiky? I know when you have a motor pulling 20 mine only actually draws about 12amps fromt he power supply.

You could always send them an email

I've been looking around at some chargers recently, and have found this to be a much better alternative to the Much More charger. How have peoples' APS chargers held up after a while?

I purchased on in december, it didn't read rpms for the motor dyno.
I sent it back twice. it still has problems.

I like the heat probe for charging 3800s,

charges 3800's cool and peaks out around 118 degrees.

my friend had an incident where he accidently hit the the side of the metal shell with the charge cable alligator clips. It shorted something inside. I wrapped my charger with clear strapping tape, to try to insulate the charger from shorting against any external electricity.

The APS appears to be sensitive,

I would go for the LRP or the Competition Pluys Pit Bull.

I have had an APS dyno charge since they were released and never had any problems.

Weird.

Default Charger Resets

Hi Guys,

After fault free operations for about a year, a few weeks ago my APS blew the 15 Amp fuse due to a power supply problem.

Ever since then, it sometimes resets during charging. By reset, I mean, it starts charging, then after maybe 30 seconds or so, the charger reboots itself. Usually if I power it off then on again it is good for a few more charges, then the problem occurs again.

Since I'm in Australia, I *really* don't want to have to ship this thing back for service.

Any suggestions?

Mike

Is there a replaceable internal fuse? Mine now wont charge. It started giving a bad fuse or connection error.
