i agree... its been nearly 2 years since its been out... its only still "lipo-ready"... and the last update was 5 months ago... guys at spintec have to really keep updating their product regularly... to keep their promises... i have to admit, i am still waiting for this charger to get even better still.

ICC Interface Cable Part # SPI06

is the above solely for firmware updates?

or is there a way of transferring charge & discharge info like you can with the Pro-Trak BMS

emailed Spintec re software for using PC to capture data from charge/discharge cycles and they say

Quote:
At the moment the cable is only for firmware updates, thatís correct.

However we are working on firmware and PC software that also allows you to read out data with this same cable.

It is not yet possible to say when we can release it, that will take some time.

C.V.R is "cell voltage rebound" or something, basically, if you finish discharging some batteries, it records the voltage one minute after the load has been removed, and records the voltage two minutes after the load has been removed. This was something spintec added to help detect bad cells.

the voltage on a bad cell will rebound more slowly after a discharge, vs a better cell.

at least that's my take on this cvr thing.

hey guy's I contact Erik. Last week regarding the option of LiPo. He said it will problably be avail in the next coming year. I believe there working on the program script to make sure it does work. You would have to use the external wire ports. the only other option would be the losi adpter that was previoiusly posted. I would paste the email i recieve from him but i'm at my work pc.
