    • MC3000 Hardware Version 1.4, Firmware Version 1.02
    • Samsung Galaxy S5, Android 5.0 with german language setting
    • MC3000 App V2.5


    Example: Editing a setup voltages will first be displayed with decimal dot, e.g. 4.20 V. After modifying or reentring the voltage will be displayed with decimal comma, e.g. 4,20V or 4,10V. On saving such a setting the app crashes immediately. Maybe during a text-to-number-conversion-routine.

    Temporary workaround: Choose language setting with decimal dot ("."), e.g. English (United Kingdom) or English (United States). This is annoying in other apps (Mail, spreadsheet, ...).
    Yeah the bug was very easy to reproduce by everyone, thanks for showing the shortest way.
    The bug has been fixed, i am running the android app V3.0. Saving a 1.01A LiIon charge program on a geman andloid doesnt crash the app anymore, good good.
    I dont know what else has been done since V2.8, maybe nothing else hh.

    prospective firmware version to be posted online (server or webpage) will be 1.11. coming very soon. no more reasons to hold it back afaik.
    am not sure when android app V3.0 will be posted on Google Play Store.

    EDIT: how come the serial number is so high, they only make the MC3000 in batches of 200, are other models of SkyRC charger`s included in this serial number?

    I have found a bug in the android app. Should be tested if this happens on all phones. Mine is nexus 4 on android 6.
    When i have a bluetooth headset paired to the phone(in this case headset is powered off, not sure if it happens when its on), the app cant find the charger.
    By looking at the bluetooth menu its clear that the phone gives priority to the headset and tries to connect to it first. While this is going on, the app times out and displays message that charger cannot be found.
    Easily solvable by increasing the time app searches for charger.

    Edit:
    Just to describe the exact situation.
    1.Headset paired
    2. turn bluetooth off
    3. Turn headset off
    4. Start MC3000 app which automaticaly turns bluetooth on , and the bug happens.

    Some excellent clear instructions (and a bit scary) that Sky*cough*krisel*cough*RC have written in the Firmware upgrade. Very scary though, still Windows XP3 only. I dare not upgrade my unit yet, having only Windows 10. I'll wait for someone else to try.

    There is also an updated manual (haven't read it yet) and a new v1.02 of MC3000 monitor, which on a quick examination has the same bugs (can't be resized) etc as the older version.

    Still, great to see v1.11 of the firmware out.

    Big round of applause krisel for being the go-between us and SkyRC.

    Same here, update without problems. Windows 10 x64 using USB 3.0 PORT

    EDIT: Can we have a list of changes, I cannot see anything new (found hot buttons top page 16) with a quick look.

    My update was successful.

    I'm running Windows Vista 64 Bit with all the latested updates and service packs. Standard USB 2.0 and 1.1 Ports.

    Note: If your PC has a USB 3.0 HUB. USB 3.x HUBs I have reviewed are basically a USB 3.x HUB integrated with a USB 2.0 HUB for backwards compatibility. Different OS drivers are used for USB 3.x and USB 2.0 On some PC's conflicts may occur. I would first make certain your PC and OS has no USB conflicts between USB devices and drivers. Often a PC with a USB 3.x hub will have bios settings for USB 3.x and USB 2.0 that will effect how the USB HUBs are initialized and how their OS drivers are loaded.

    On my Vista 64-Bit PC, USBview is reporting:

    bcdUSB : 0x200 (USB Version 2.00)
    Device Bus Speed : 0x01 (Full-Speed)

    USB 2.0 Full Speed = 12 Mbit/s

    battery needs to have a minimum voltage. your battery is below it i think. then charger will skip taking the Batt IR measurement.

    @John
    has anyone seen the list?

    @John

    Did they make the minimum voltage to check for IR 3.3V?
    If that is the case than its actually a step backwards for people like me, as i know it worked ok before. SkyRC should have in mind that people arent charging only protected cells with 3.2v or similar electronic cutout.
    As im into Vaping, all my cells are IMR which are mostly discharged to about 3V(by spec sheets maximum discharge is 2.5v for most popular IMR) by the mods most vapers use, which comes out to no IR checking when putting battery on charger every time battery is discharged fully on the mod.
    And given that many of the modern flashlights have built in overdischarge protection i would figure that even flashlight people use IMR.
    Understandable that it might trip the protection in the protected batteries, but this way its cutting functionality when charging IMR batteries.
    So tell your palls to make it factory default at 3.3v, but put an voltage range option for the user to change to preffered voltage.
    Dont be IMR Phobic :P.
    And while were at it , same thing goes for the reduced current if battery is below 3.2v as far as i recall, thats also a bad limitation for vapers as some mods discharge 2.5-2.8V(under load), so unnneceserily it takes a long time to get things going to full speed.
    I know that this was mentioned, so make it an user option also.
    It would make the charger even more versatile.

    I updated using a HP Pavilion G6 running Windows 7 Home Premium 64 SP1. The update was successful, but where is the game?

    (k#38) add in GSV some hidden generic LCD games for 1 player (CONFIRMED, DONE)
    Let us be completely honest for a minute; the game is what we all really have been waiting for, isn't it?

    Be aware that IR can increase much at low SOC, e.g. see the graph below. So it is better to calculate it at higher SOC if you want a result that reflects the IR in normal SOC ranges.

    We are talking about different things.
    I didnt have in mind how precise is IR measurement at given SOC, but the fact that with the new firmware you dont get an IR reading when charging a battery that is discharged below 3.3v.
    Not a very big deal tbh, but it still is a step that doesn't consider all users/types of batteries, and its a step backwards for my needs.

    Hi,

    Just tried to update the firmware and on count 4 it showed the error. Now the device boots only in blank white screen mode, no usb connection is possible. Is there any way to recover it? It is nearly impossible to send it for repair for me.

    What was the error?

    I believe if you boot the device with enter pressed down (unplug all power, hold down enter, plug in power) you can reflash it.

    What operating system do you use?

    Hi,
    error.2 start vector.

    Now if I start it with ENTER pressed down - windows says USB device was unable to start, but when I just start it and plug it in - Device description failed. So it differs...

    Windows 10 x64, I have two machines - Surface Pro and stationary PC.
