Oh fixed that problem, I just cleaned the contact patches on the cells with a toothbrush.

Another improvement that could be made while I am thinking about it, is when the charger has finished charging/discharging that the tone to tell you it has finished carries on. Because at the moment it just beeps once then stops. If you are away from the charger, if you miss the beep then you don't know if it is done or not.
And having a auto restart feature would be handy if you loose mains power.

no thanks. i keep my beeps on my charger to a minimum (3 secs). i am never there to see it finish anyway. imagine if you are on gone away for 15minutes and the chrger beeps for that long? how annoying it will be for the people around your pit table.

Is temperature cut off for the icc also individual for each cell?
Anyone got a picture of this thing in action?
Also does it come with the pc interface cable? or that's another separate order?

Its frustrating that there are units for sale in remote locations, yet not all the distributors have even received their demo units.

Glad to see that this product is finally coming around!
Downloadable firmware updates is a big plus I think.
I know it can discharge individual cells up to 10A, but what about the motor run-in and external discharge, what is the max amperage?
