if u mean charging while on the tray.... u need a separate power supply(1amp is sufficient)... set to voltmeter, connect ur charger to the batts and charge... tats it...

now i wonder if its ok to use the same for discharging....

since no reponse i decided to take the risk...

but rather than using a charger to discharge... i used spintec cos it doesn use any power supply unlike the charger... and so far so good... now i can monitor if any cell drops below 0.9...

I've been using my "wave" for a couple of months now, still works a treat.

Ive noticed cell 6 on all my packs goes out first... anyone experiencing the same or know the reason behind this phenomia?

The Wave works great. We just found one little problem with most units. The screws which fix the clips to the PCB are not tight enough. After fixing this the Wave works much more accurate. In my opinion the clips also could be improved for a better contact but beside this I think the Wave is much better than the other units available.

Just a guess: If that 6th cell is the one which you solder the negative connector on then it may be that your soldering technique heats up the cell a little bit too much. Normally it happens on the negative connector because the negative side of the cell has a lot of surface to heat up and it takes longer time... Build up heat can lower the capacity of a cell...

Could be a possibility, I use a 100watt iron (too hot?) maximum contact time is about 6 seconds, the 6th cell happens to be the positive lead. Could it be that the 6cell takes the initial drain from the esc, causing that cell to over heat?

well i can tell you my batteries are pretty random as to which cells have more/less run time.

some packs are the end one, some are the middle. there is no real pattern. but you may notice the end one more if they are the first or last to go off.

Does this charger do the job in maintaining your packs on a competition level?

I'm thinking of getting one since I sold my Smart tray SE. Or I better off buying the trinity DPD? Which one is better on this two discharger?
