i saw the cable last week and it looked awfully standard to me, with something that looked a lot like the turbo 35 GFX so my guess is that it will be quite close.. (bought the ICC, but not the cable)

Can you tell us what the plug looks like then? If it's a trapeziodal metal frame surrounding 9 pins (5+4), then its a standard DB9 cable.

Sorry if this was discussed before, but is it possible to charge and discharge the cells as one by one or do they have to be soldered as a battery pack ?

With the cell discharge, can you set the voltage cut-off for all the cells, or is it a 'pack voltage'?

I started to charge and waited for about 30- 40 min to check how it idoing. The charging count was only up to 035mAh! The Battery is still new.
I only used this IB4200 twice before this charge. It was set for 5.0A charge.
Anyone had this problem? Should I send it back to repaire? Sorry for my poor English and Thank you for your time.

Skiddins
voltage cutt-off is per cell, you can set it from 0.70 - 1.00

I don't have an ICC, so I don't know if there are any different specific parameters for the connection. I know that with the CE chargers, you connect through HyperTerminal. In HyperTerminal you make a new connection choosing "Direct to ComX#" Parameters for the CE are:
Bits per second: 9600
Data bits: 8
Parity: None
Stop bits: 1
Flow Control: Hardware
After that you can send the data from the charger and it will show up in HyperTerminal. From HyperTerminal you can save the data as a TXT file and import it into Excel and do whatever you wish with the data.

Keep in mind that the parameters I gave are for the CE but who knows, it might work as well with the Spintec. Your best bet would be to contact Erik.
