I think that is one of its biggest draw backs, no external discharge
Motor Run in max amps is 15A I think.

I don't think so. You could charge 4 loose cells, but cell 5 has a different setup to the other 6 slots and requires there to be a battery bar.

i think this is in reverse of the novak smart tray, in which case, fully agree with the above post. i have battery bar/solder tabs on the 'top' of my cells, so i am not sure if i will be able to just turn the pack upside down. i'm wondering how hard it would be to open it up and move some connections around(?).

and the $500 question, any eta on availability in the states. horizon's site has been 'off' (being kind) for release dates in the past.

Although I am dutch and the ICC is a dutch product (it is a kind of Tulip ), the ICC is heavy, bulky, expensive and not yet (in my opinion) fully developed. So I am very happy with my Robi Overloader.............sorry guys

Agreed, there are still some issues with IB packs as I've seen last night again.

Otoh. You can charge 2 packs at the same time so it's not _that_ expensive.

I was playing with the cost breakdown vs being equipped with Much More equipment.

Much More Charger: 150 USD
Much More Motor Master (granted, it s a dyno by cell master does not do run-in) : 150 USD
Novak tray: 60 usd
CTX-D: 170 USD

ICC is about comparable with a mix of a lot of those elements..so that gets you a lot of nice features -individual cell reading / charger / discharger and so on.. for a decent price.

An all in one package, plus eric gives good customer service, will charge lipo, pc connection..

For me, ICC is not a bad deal AT ALL.

I habe the ICC and an Robi Overloader.
But my packs give more power when I charge them with the ICC.
You can feel the difference after a few charges.

That's true, but you real can feel the difference.
I have a few very old packs.
Now I can drive normal 5 minutes instead of 3 minutes.
Ok not with that much punch but much better than before.

Just serious guys, I think, as for what I have seen this is a good product. Rob, and offcourse Hugo, are very happy with it, by judging the power their packs give at the nationals. So an absolute product to have.

(and I still think its to heavy sorry couldn't help it)

I just like the fact that it can do multiple things at the same time. It an charge or 2 packs, or 1 pack and you could run in your motor or comm lathe... It's not small... but hey... if you throw out some off the 20 sets off tires you wont use it fits easy
