Will the Dynapulse put the voltage down to 0.9 V per cell?

That just means that you've broken down the crystalline build up in the cells. With regular use my good cells stopped making noise too. If I hook up an old crap pack the familiar clicking noise is readily apparent.

It takes the PACK down to a pre-determined voltage equivalent .9 per cell. The only way to achieve a true, balanced .9 volts on each cell is to use an equalizing tray.

this thing sucks, mine stopped working after about 60 cycles, it turns on, it says the resistance is 0 and won't start to discharge, i tried it on all my packs and same thing. i can't even send it in to get it fixed, bought it off someone else, stick with the muchmore ctxd, more money but you get what you pay for.

Mine stopped working on around 55 cycles. It took more than 18 hrs to discharge a pack so I know something is wrong. Anyone has experience dealing with their service department? I check their website for service info but did not find one. What have you done to get this problem fixed? Thanks.

I have a few of them and all of mine have over 200 cycles with zero problems... Mine have always lowered IR and increased voltage.. Very good piece of equipment to have..

Mine is now coming up on 300 cycles and works faultlessy. Good piece of kit.
