Smile lightning v2

hey

when you use the v2 to discharge a pack. After discharging does the lightning v2 tell you the amount of average volts or run time that was left in each cell.

What I am realy trying to get at is, is there a function on the Lightning v2 that will help weed out bad cells.


Cheers


Ryan

Default quick question

4200 and 4300 cells.
is version friendly to those type cells and can i use to match packs as people do with the CTX?
Trying to decide which to go with, your does seem to be a nice alternative.

is there a download for the manual, would like to take a peak at the details.

thanks

TEAMWAVE, please could you give me a bit more info regarding the bad batch of V1s, I have a feeling mine could be one of the troubled ones, as it seems to follow the sypmtoms sitting-duck describes. Any other way to tell if the my unit is one of the dodgy ones? (i.e any serial number I can tell by?)
Thanks

it seems like the online support for team Wave is much better than MuchMore. I do like my CTX-D. But if I were to get another discharger it would be the wave for the cost and the support.

This is form much more web tech tips,

Here's a tip of monitoring cells voltages with the CTX-D during charging.

1.Connect your charger to a Power supply.
2.Connect your CTX-D to another power supply(if you have)
3.Tray your battery on the CTX-D
4.Enter into Linear DCH mode. you will see 6 cells voltage.
5.Connect charger to battery then start charge.

You can check each cell's status with this way. The tray will show you the volts.
Weak cell or damaged cell will show you higher voltage during charge.

You should connect CTX-D to different power supply. otherwise they will make short circuit.

The CTX-D does not require a high-amp power supply to run on its own. It consumes about 350mA, so a low amp power supply/AC Adaptor (wired correctly) will work fine.

http://www.much-more.co.kr/testbbs/b...=0&menu_index=



we also can perform the same process with a team wave discharger, just go into voltage reading mode.

CAUTION:
You should connect Team wave to different power supply. otherwise they will make short circuit.

The Team Wave Lighting discharger does not require a high-amp power supply to run on its own. so a low amp power supply/AC Adaptor (wired correctly) or power with a 7.2v battery will work fine



Mr Team Wave, please correct me if i was wrong....thanks

edwintklee - The battery indicator is for Version 1 only, please refer to the user menu.

edwintklee - You can charge battery on top of the Lightning using a seperate power supply (or powered by a battery pack). Actually this function is invented by TEAMWAVE and other company follows.

wyl03 - Lightning V2 is a pure discharge/equalizer, it will not show discharge capacity and IR. For accurate & useful data (AVG, IR, Cap), please use Turbo Matcher 4 / 35.

Mr TeamWave,

Can we discharge the battaries when it is still HOT after play? Or wait for it to cool down first? I ve got the V2 ed.

Is it true that we can use a 7.2V batteries as it power supply as someone here mentioned here earlier?

About voltage display during charge
I Totally agree , becos i saw this function on a team wave 1ST



About discharge capacity and IR,
Many available not very accurate, just compare the $$$$$ of a turbo matcher and other that give the same infomation........

@ Team Wave


Why should i wait for the updated software. I have payed 124 for your discharger at a shop,and it does not work,it is useless for me now.The shop only has units from the faulty batch so i cant get it changed because i will get another bad one.

Do you think its normal that i buy a new piece of equipment that does not work,and that the manufacturer says,oh yea we have some bad ones,please wait and i will let you know when we have better software. And what if the good software is ready? Do you expect that i ame going to send my unit to you to update it and pay the shipping costs,and wait another couple weeks?

Do you think this is good custumer service?
What are you gone do to solve my problem?
How is it possible that you send a bad batch to my local hobby shop?

Holy fast shipping batman... I ordered my lightning v2 on sunday and it was here today in Canada by noon... needless to say I am very happy.
have not played with it much yet but cant wait to compare it to my smart tray.
Thank you for the great service TeamWave...

hi, mr team wave,

i bought a Lightning2 discharger today at my local race meeting instead of the Novak smart tray SE, when i got home i plugged it in and put a set of 4 cells on it to start discharging, but i got a very high pitch squeal as soon as all 4 cells where in place, please advise what the problem is, when i disconnect one of the cells it stops!!!

cheers
steve

I too hv the same high pitch buzzler non-stop noise coming out when place onto the V2 unit. Not sure was it a bad batteries pack? some packs are ok but may sound a short buzzler here & there.

Noted also sometimes 1 or 2 of the cells have voltage as high as 2.47V in a pack?? However, when switching the +ve & -ve terminals by flipping the pack over, the voltage read out is back to normal again, ie., 1.2X!!??

I dont think I hv mistaken & never connect the batteries to the wrong terminal. So everytime I have to discharge, first thing is I have to flip the batteries around just to eliminate the buzzle noise & to make sure any single cell does not come out with funny voltage (2.47V) before I start the discharge process... Is this right????

I hv also noted the voltage reading always fluctuating at cell position no 2 and have tested with different packs with same problem. Not sure will it affect the discharge process??
