I heard from Erik today.. we got things fixed.. misscommunication.

I charge EP cells... Usually 3mv cutoff with 130degrees temp cutoff.. at 6.5 amps.

Don't forget all your cells are chaged separately so they will have different discharge times.

Do they peak/temp cutoff at the same time?

Okay guys, I'm in the market for a new charger and I've been looking at the ICC. I've read a few pages back and it seems like the spring posts tend to break, correct? Also what is the latest firmware and hardware versions? Is there a 5 cell version charger too?

I have a computer with vista on it and want to know if it will work when updating the firmware. Thanks in advance.

I gotta say that I am really happy with this charger.

I got mine a little while ago and for older-packs, this charger is awesome! I had a battery with 2 pretty dead cells (4200 IB) that was false peaking on my Futaba CDR 5000... put this battery onto the ICC and it's like it brought the cells back to life. Can't wait to start charging new packs on this thing - I can only assume that it will help keep my new packs stronger for longer.

Although you have to be much gentler with the ICC versus a traditional charger, the performance gains are well worth the $$$ IMHO.

Great job Spintec
