hi all, Mr team wave..

i have a question, when we set the cut off voltage at 0.9v per cell, after discharging on this discharger,

so i try to discharge with spintec, my spintec still show about 7.++v or sometimes 6.++v,

does this means that team wave discharger is not discharging properly???

this same battery if i do not discharge again with spintec, the total charging amp reading will be lower that the cell capacity....example if 3800 will only charge 3300 or so...or lower..

maybe i should set the cut off voltage lower than 0.9v per cell? please advise..

hope u guys understanding what i am saying....

What XDL level are u using? If you use XDL=1, it will cut off at a higher current resulting more juice left in the battery. Try XDL=9, it will discharge the battery much deeper. Once the battery is disconnected, it will gradually return to its open voltage (no load to the battery), say 1.xxV...BUT, it doesn't mean that it is not discharged, as I always tell people Voltage is not equal to Energy stored in the battery!!

yep the XDL = 1, for more punch, let me try this out..



also, when we are in the discharging process, the display will show the discharging voltage, than change to battery sign, my battery bar sign will always stay full, and not like your web page photo where 3 bar will go missing, does this means is not discharging properly??



any idea?..

got a similar problem like edwintklee (and i think someone mentioned it early in this thread too), the bar of cell 6 is always full, even minutes after all other cells are done. If i then stop discharging and start again, cell 6 is immediately done while the others continue to discharge... tried several packs, all the same. I think somebody suggested that it's a contact problem, but i tried everything fron tightening the screws that hold the clips to cleaning the connectors (corally style) on the battery.

Maybe you have an idea!

hey omoser,

for the battery meter problem, try to set the XDL=9, than you will see the different....

Mr team wave, i am trying the battery pack discharging with XDL=9 , will post result later,

my theory is this,

if we discharging with XDL=1, where the battery still got lots of juice in team, our charger will have a lower peak value, but if XDL=9, meaning the battery is discharging to the minimum juice, than our charger will have a higher peak...

let me try is out...thanks for the tips..

hmmm, my problem is not that discharge of all cells stops immediately but only cell 6. It's like this: I put on the pack, start discharging, can watch cell 1,2,3,4,5 bars disappearing until DONE is displayed for all cells except cell 6. If i cancel discharge process after some minutes (all cells are in state DONE now, one cell 6's bar is full) and start again, cell 6 displays DONE immediately and the other cells (1..5) continue discharging since their discharge process was done long before (and therefore the voltage is again at 1.2 which is ok)

maybe some TeamWave representative can say something about that problem since i'm not the only one having it.

omoser,

i too notice the same problem...

is it maybe that our cell are not equalise? so this would happen?? i also dunno, maybe some1 would like to help us out??

Mr Team Wave,

i solve the discharging problem, infact i now find the team wave dischager more accurate discharger as compare to the spintec V1. thanks for the info,

I have a litle problem, discharging packs with 4 cells. The cell number 4, not discharge properly, the cells 1,2,3, go down the volts, finds Done, but the cell 4 not discharge, i think is a problem with batteries, but i probe 12 packs and the same problem in all the packs.
I work in electronic industry, and i have a desing and make some discharges trays, only for my personal use.

For me, is a litle problem, because the solution is simple, i put a bridge into de contacts of cell 4 and 5, only the single inferior ones, to simulate that there is another element, and to discharge the 4 cells, perfectly.

Have anyone the same problem, or is a defect in my tray?.

For now is work very good, with 6 cells, and 4 cells with the tip.

xluis: You have do the right thing. Connect a bar is needed for 4 cells. May be you will ask why we don't make this connection on the PCB. The answer is simple, the PCB will burn out if you reverse the battery direction!

But for the V2, no modification is needed for 4 cells


We have small amount of V2 in stock, please contact [email protected] for orders!
