450 bucks, basically the same price as the GFX.

Does look like a great charger though.
With Dan's connections...
Maybe he can get it cheaper for those interested...

Default CDR-5000 charging 1-36 cells?

quick question guys.. ive gotten mixed responses on this when reading info about the CDR-5000 charger on the internet.

it can charge 1-36 cells right? ive read somewhere it can charge 6 6cell packs? (for us rc racers) is this true? or you can charge one battery pack that contains anywhere from 1-36 cells? if someone owns one already.. please let us know. thanks!

I would think it could charge 1-36 cells, not 6-6 cell packs. That's only my interpretation of that. I don't have the unit, but I would think charging 6-6cell packs would be tough on the charger.

If these sell for that low a street price, CE has some competition for once.

CDR-5000 charger..

you would think that charging 6 pak's or 36 seperate cells whould generate alot of heat for that charger giving its size and cooling ability.....just my 2 cents ..

Default Rayspeed Charger...

John > I bought the Rayspeed charger as well and I have a question for you.

I discharge to .09 but when/should I do the .0?

Also since I run the cells a couple times a day, should I always discharge to .09 before I charge for the next heat? and go down to .0?

Thanks....

The only time you should drop to 0 is if yo're using Nicd cells. I don't equalize between charges in the same day if I do charge twice.

wolfie ... are you dicharging NiMH cells down to 0.09v or 0.9v?
Its very important not to try to discharge NiMH cells close to 0.0v. It will cause imbalance to the chemicals inside the cells and maybe wreacking your very good packs of cells.

Just my 0.02

First of all, i think you need a 40 amp power supply if your looking at charging 36 cells (i could be wrong).

Then you have 5 internal fans to cool down the charger.

So i don think it would be a problem charging 36 cells at one time.

Daniel - Got my cells today. The numbers look great! Thanks for the excellent customer service.

Only "bummer" about the deal was the fact that there were no Fukuyama Racing stickers inside. Are you selling them via website?

Thanks guys on the information about discharging.

I really like the rayspeed discharger now that I know how to use it

I bought some more Fuks the other day so i can use them twice in a race day instead of 3.
