The 16x9 is a good charger as well..I had one..but it too will not power a lathe or dyno. it only provides you with 12volt output terminals to power your accessories. If you're thinking of getting the 16x9...you should wait 'til Feb. '03 to get one. the 16x9 V6.0 will be released.

If you're looking for a charger that will run a lathe, etc. look at the LRP Pulsar. Otherwise the 16x5 v6.0 is probably the best charger for the money right now.

Wait it says on the site it can run the dyno and with both of them you can use a lythe and break in motors.

yes..that is true...but you cannot adjust voltage output. it is fixed at 12volts. it can handle the dyno since it should have a voltage regulator on it...that in turn can also power up your lathe. at 5 volts. +/-

I ordered a 16x7 charger, and should be getting by this Wednesday. I heard that it was a great charger and quite loud. Can't wait till I get it!!!

The 16x7 is the excact same model as the Reedy Quasar Pro. both made my Eagle racing. and yes..and both are very loud. After the warrantee expires..put a piece of tape over the tone buzzer to quiet it down. Fortunately your warrantee won't expire for 5 years.

I just got my charger yesterday. It works great and a bit to the loud side. But how many mv do I charge my batteries at? I have a Panasonic 3000 SMH, Sanyo 1700 and a Sanyo 1500. Also when it is done charging this thing pops up that says E and the volts go down, what is that?

I think the E stands for "END"???? The voltage goes down because the pack is not receiving a charge anymore, it is perfectly normal for packs to fall to 8.8v-9.1v after charging. I just do not know at which voltage it settles because i normally race right after charging.

If you press the right arrow, you would be able to see the peak voltage, press once again and you will see the internal resistance during charging...though IR during charging is irrelevant.

hmmm...
the IR would definitely have some impact during charging...
i use it as a guage 2 the condition of the batt...as u use ur batts more n over a longer period of time,i notice that the internal resistance increases...

IR during charging is irrelevant because it is IR on the discharge phase that counts. if you notice, both charge and discharge phases will have different IR on the same batery. the IR on the discharge is more important because it will affect the punch of the car.

not sure abt tat...
but imagine the IR as something tat is restrict the charging current...

i think the "B" stands for backlit...

remember, the car benefits from the battery during use (i.e. when it discharges current to run the motor) so IR reading during discharge is more relevant and important for actual use.

in fact, the IR of matched batteries (orion, smc, integy, etc.) stamped on the label is the IR during discharge, not on charging.

it makes sense wat u said abt the IR during discharging/running,but still i believe the IR would affect the batt punch?,run-time?...
2 have the current in the batt during discharging/running u must have the current in the batt 1st rite?...
discharging or charging although r different process,i believe that they r still related...

jus my personal views...
